Musandam, Oman Dhow Cruise

The first and memorable cruise yet. I went with Rittie to Musandam, Oman for a dhow cruise. It was very relaxing except that we were with (what felt like) 40+ other strangers (which I don't enjoy much at all; introvert alert!) This is the very first "adventure" thing we've done and were very excited for this since we both love going to the beach and we miss the Philippines so much.

It was an easy adventure and we packed light, stayed in one corner and enjoyed the views. We also met fellow Filipinos on the cruise which made the journey extra fun!

We stopped near the shoreline for lunch. And hop on a banana boat ride -- which was extremely exciting, scary and fun! Honestly, I was a bit dizzy after all the activities we've done. This is the first time that I got sea sick -- guess I am getting older now (ohnoes!) So I just stayed in one place and enjoyed the views going back home!

We were entertained by the birds flying around trying to get some food! Plus, the afternoon sun was very nostalgic. It made me miss home so much!


We were supposed to go fishing however the sailors did not approve of it since the waves were being too tricky. So we just sailed all the way back home. Took pictures and stayed near the bow of the boat just because!

The view was so majestic! Would love to go back again and spend another day sailing. It felt so good to be around mountains! Ahh, missing home so much!



  1. I love how the rocky mountains and sea are a complete contrast to the flat desert landscape of Dubai. It's what makes Musandam such an ideal weekend getaway.

    1. That's true! I've read there are more activities in this place! Would love to venture for more :)
