http://www.theduncanadventures.com/

This self-proclaimed adventure addict, Scottish expat Mumma living in Oman and girl about town, shares her escapades and daily life in between. Being unable to say no to the opportunity to relocate their family to Oman, the tartan-clad clan established a veritable home zoo including a new baby, a massive dog, two crazy kittens, a few turtles and a verve for expat life.

Ros in Wonderland
https://rosinwonderland.wordpress.com/

With a section of her blog dedicated to expat life in Oman, Ros spent 4 and a half years exploring this unique Sultanate. Side effects include excitement at seeing rain, the ups and downs of a relaxed way of life, surprise at how strawberries could occasionally cost the same by weight as gold and a plethora of other unpredictable revelations.

An essential read for anyone looking to start a life and family outside of the M25 (yes, there is life outside of the England motorway ringing London), Ayshe’s blog is a heartfelt journal of life as an expat in Oman. Discovering more and more as she finds herself further along the expat journey (and taking surprises in her stride) A Life Outside the M25 is a fascinating diary.

How To Live An Omani Princess
http://howtolivelikeanomaniprincess.blogspot.co.uk/

The stories of two anonymous Omani princesses sharing their lives behind the keyboard. Communicating via conversations, this blog is full of glitter, a touch of home decoration musings and tales from behind veils. Written in the tone of a friend over coffee, it is a blog worth reading as research and to find out about new gems.

Blaber Blogger
http://www.blaberblogger.com/

According to the blog archives of Blaber Blogger, in Oman, people won’t troll you much as clouds will and Mountain Dew is definitely the (unofficial) national drink, which are handy precursors to life sandwiched between desert sands and mountain peaks. Leaving behind this ‘amazingly, mind blowing, head boggling and earth shatteringly beautiful’ place’ would be rather difficult…

Quantified Expat
https://quantifiedexpat.com/

Updated fairly infrequently, Quantified Expat is Peter’s personal journey of expat life in a Sultanate. Hailing originally from the green (and rather wet) verdant shores of England, the posts are of family shenanigans and honest recollections of life abroad.

Lawrence of Azaiba
http://lawrenceofazaiba.blogspot.co.uk/

Another anonymous blogger sharing the joys and tribulations of living in the Sultanate of Oman, Lawrence of Azaiba writes with a passionate verve that the other eponymous Laurence would approvingly nod his head at. Detailing the processses involved in day to day machinations with a wry tone, this is excellent reading for anyone looking to make the move.

Muscat Mutterings
http://www.muscatmutterings.com

Focusing on the life & news in the Sultanate of Oman with a specific spotlight on Muscat, these are not just mutterings as the title suggests, but a collection of helpful guides to local events. With topics as varied as children’s costume contests to consular notices that the author finds, this is an excellent resource for newly arrived expats settling into the capital city of Oman.

Jenny Far Away
http://jennyfaraway.com/

Jenny is a digital nomad newly arrived in Sohar, Oman and has begun to jot down her first impressions of this Middle Eastern state. Having charted the globe several times as a digital nomad, her journey has brought her to the birthplace of the infamous Omani hospitality – strangers helping new expats move furniture, the role patience plays in everyday life and just how much desert BBQ a person can eat…

Travels in Oman
https://ynotoman.wordpress.com/

Travels in Oman are the beautiful images and occasional thoughts of a Brit who has discovered desert sands in his veins. Living in the UAE for many years, Tony has both worked in and explored many of the neighbouring states but is content to call Oman his home (whilst not away travelling.)

We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature – if you run a blog about living in Oman, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!

In this short video, we dive into the significant health care updates and changes happening globally in 2024. From Germany's insurance cost adjustments to Cyprus's renewed COVID-19 precautions, we cover the essential news you need to know.  Germany's Health Insurance Update:  Starting in 2024, residents in Germany will see a slight increase in their health insurance costs, with a 0.1% rise to a maximum of 1.7%.

COVID-19 Measures Reintroduced in Cyprus:  With over 3000 new COVID-19 cases, Cyprus is stepping up its game by reintroducing health measures. Requirements now include proof of a negative COVID-19 test for entry into various facilities, emphasizing the importance of vaccination, especially for the elderly, to combat the evolving virus strains.  Free Health Trials in Trieste, Italy:  Trieste launches an initiative for free health screenings, including echocardiograms and blood tests, focusing on preventive care against non-communicable diseases. This move underscores the city's commitment to improving public health through early detection and prevention.  Spain's New Health Advice App:  Madrid introduces a groundbreaking app offering reliable health advice to counteract the widespread misinformation online.
