We decided to try to do more on the weekends. There are so many beautiful things to see here other then the malls. Now that the weather is cooling a bit we have decided to go on adventures during the weekends. We wanted to visit other Emirates and Oman which is the country neighboring UAE. In this blog we ventured to Buraimi, Oman which Al Ain borders. I actually live right across from the border so we have finally gone across to do more than just renew our visas. We decided to visit. We also took a trip through Oman mountains to get to Hatta UAE last weekend. Hatta was a quaint village we enjoyed visiting the fort there and the heritage village. The following weekend we ventured to Musandum, Oman going through Ras Al Khaimah UAE. both places we went where mountain villages. I LOVED IT! so far this has been my favorite place I've gone to. Musandum was unbeleivable beautiful my camera in no way did it justice. You should look at other pictures of Musandam on this web site or on the net. Anyway, this place was so picturesque. Mountains, deserts, and oceans. villages with goats and cows
walking down the street or climbing the mountains. Beautiful beaches, old fashioned wooden boats.
We even saw a fox! and I hear there are leopards in the mountains. I absolutely loved this place. Unfortunately they charge quite a bit to cross into Musandum. So I dont know how often we will go its about a 3 1/2 hour drive but well worth it. I would love to spend a week there and talk with the villagers.
