Adventure Time

Al Khoudh Adventure

November 17, 2016

It has been two years since I last visited Wadi Al Khoudh, doesn’t time fly?! And two years since I blogged about it, click here, This week I returned for a late afternoon visit bringing both my dogs along for the ride.

We arrived a little later than planned, mostly because I misread my own directions and ended up somewhere completely different resulting in an extra 30 mins detour. As we pulled into the Wadi it was a beautiful afternoon with the heat of the day subsiding and the sun making its final journey across the sky heading behind the craggy hillside.



The dogs did what they do best – Run, sniff, run, jump and then sniff a bit more. At the first sign of a pool of water Penny, the German Shepherd, was straight in there attempting the dogs equivalent of a belly flop closely followed by Luna the nutcase Husky. They both loved having a change of scenery from their usual neighbourhood walks.


As the golden sun disappeared out of sight it was time to head back to the car, neither dog protested and were happy to jump into the car and rest their weary legs.


Now that the amazing winter weather is upon us I hope to venture outdoors for many more adventures this season and get this tired old blog page back up and kicking.

Until next time,

    Don’t post! (love the mountains in the first pic btw). Hi. I lost your number and email.

    I wanted to know if you’d like an experience as an Omani bride;) and your husband as an Omani groom? I have niece who wants to be a photographer and she already is one but all the brides she’s photographed won’t allow their photos to be used to show prospective brides her work. If you want, would you be interested in an over-the-top Arabian styled bridal shoot? She would give you prints and I would love to write a post about a traditional and modern style wedding in our village. You could blog it as well. She would rent a dress, and have your hair dressed and your henna done, get your husband tailored the dishdasha and bisht, and the guys would do him up with sword and rifle and all lol and you’d have a bridal ‘lunch’ (real food0 in Misfah Al Abriyeen. Then we’d put you in Omani dress, and do the fake wedding procession by donkey… I would so do it and volunteered but my husband said no….:(. So I told my neice I’d ask the expat girls I know but you’re the only one with a husband here. If you’re interested let me know when you’re free (plus I’d get to see you again for a fake wedding, how awesome would that be lol). If you aren’t, still email me so we caan have coffee or you can come over for tea sometime, or go for a walk etc… my personal email is
