Trekking in the Oman Mountains

10 Comments 21 May 2013

I packed my down coat rather skeptically – but on day 3 of my Oman hiking trip I found myself eagerly unpacking it and putting it on – in addition to my gloves! When you think of the Middle East – you probably don’t think of mountain ranges and freezing temperatures. However it was the [...]

Panoramic Patagonia

19 Comments 08 March 2013
