How Many Men …?

 … does it take to put two bikes on the roof of a car?
Here we go – just arrived in India and we feel like we are in a completely different world.


Before breakfast one day we went to experience the fresh early morning catch being sold – Omani style –  in the fish market.

Arabian Bakery

A friendly local couple led us down the small old winding lanes to find this little gem – steaming hot Omani bread!


In Muscat we went to the Souq in Muttrah – the local market –  to soak in the atmosphere and witness the bartering process.

Hitchhiking as a Family

As our Indian Visas are authorized we needed to get moving quicker than by bike to pick them up. So how do you get a lift in the middle of the desert as a family of 6 with 2 bikes, 2 trailers + about 15 pieces of luggage? Just get two pick ups …

… or even better a big truck!

Tabletop Mountains

A dramatic change of scenery as we leave the pointed mountain tops around Yanqul.

Someone has bulldozed the tops of the mountains – could it be something to do with the huge lumps of marble we keep seeing going by on the back of trucks? Or is it just nature’s way?

Mosque Visit

We were allowed to look inside this amazing mosque when we stopped to refill our water bottles.


Izmael`s family showed us around their town and shared stories about it’s cultural heritage. We were happy to see our children playing cannon ball together despite their language and cultural differences.
