This was my first New Year holiday week spent abroad. I tried to combine a comfortable climate (+25 in January, can you believe it?!) with cultural learning. And this idea worked out pretty fine!
The destination was the Arabian Gulf. I’ve got 3 days in Dubai/UAE and 4 days more in Oman. These two periods were so contrasting! Skyscrapers vs. traditional architecture, expat-friendly vs. traditional, urbanism vs. nature! The list of “mutually exclusive paragraphs” between two locations may go on endlessly!
But let me try to explain such experience as I usually do: by 10 thoughts.
