    Gulf of Oman is calling

    February 12, 2018 in Oman ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    After adventure cycling the high altitudes of the Al Hajar Mountains our plan was to head back to the sea. Doing so we decided to avoid big highways, took mainly side roads and eventually felt like test drivers of the 'Tour of Oman' circuit that would take place a few days later.

    We enjoyed cycling through lower foothills and passed by several wadis and green oasis villages where we usually stopped by to escape from the hottest time of the day and have lunch.

    It happened that we met Lena & Silvio again, cyclists from Germany we met in Northern Iran for the first time. This time the two of them had Felix over, a friend and bicycle enthusiast from home. We ended up in the same spot for the night, played skat under a big acacia till night and got back on the road as a team of five the next morning.

    We reached the sea in Sib, where we pitched our tent at the beach and enjoyed the regained, pleasant sea breeze.
