Visual Adventure: Oman

Everything Everywhere's Gary Arndt takes us on a visual adventure of Oman

I didn't have any expectations when I visited Oman. My primary goal was to visit Dubai, but I soon got bored and decided to head over to Oman. It was one of the best travel decisions I've made. Oman quickly became one of my favorite destinations and remains so to this day. From the souq in Muscat to the fjords in the Musandam peninsula, Oman is one of the highlights of the Arabia.
