Off Road In Oman

Negotiating flash floods on our first day; lucky we opted for the 4x4 Views from our first hotel in Muscat
A sink hole that we came across in which we swam with the minnows
Driving to find our own private beach for some 'camping sauvage'
Pitched just above the tide line
Waking to this view in the morning
Our trusty off-roader
Crossing the desert
The Eastern Hajars mountain range
Exploring the Wadis

We joined the Bedouin camp who helped us find hatching turtles in the night
At the fort of Nizwa
No dancing while crossing the road?!
Another Wadi
Attending the weekly bull fight

Living it up after being out in the wild in one of Oman's five star hotels
Near the dive site
The Burj Khalifa

Turning Thirty

Suitably spoilt with a present of one bottle for every year!I didn't need any further reasons to host a champagne tasting party for my birthday, we had to use the bathtub as a chiller we had so many bottles...

Think you can tell your common crémant from your vintage cuvée?! Come and test your champagne knowledge at a tasting evening to celebrate my 30 years.

No need to bring anything except thirst, my cellar is well stocked with fizz and food will also be served. No strict dress code but try to come looking hot!Prizes for the winner (and loser), with more fizz than you can blow a bubble at.Hope to see you there,Emily
