Musandam is the Northernmost part of Oman that borders the straits of Hormuz, which is the entrance to the Arabian Gulf and one of the most important waterways in the world. At their narrowest, the straits are approximately 30 kilometers separating Oman and Iran. Most visitors arrive in Khasab, Musandam's capital city, by ferry from Muscat or by cruise ship.
The Musandam Peninsula is a great place for nature lovers. You can take the traditional Omani Dhow boat and sail towards Masandam longest fjord with calm turquoise water that contrasts with the creamy white limestone cliffs and enjoy the breathtaking view of mountains rising from a distance or you can enjoy the same breathtaking scenery from the beach.

I visited Abu-Dhabi in early December when the weather was mild, not too hot nor too cold. The first thing I did was skipped the city and went to the Al Khatim Desert for an off-road adventure (here's the link to my VLOG on this adventure https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hV9Vrkc9UlQ).

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier" -- Mother TeresaGoa has something to offer both those seeking cultural experience and a relaxing stay. But since it’s so spread out and if your time is limited you can choose either to spend your time in the North or South Goa.

Old Goa is the original walled Portuguese city where you’ll find two historically important churches: the Basilica of Bom Jesus, the first church in India to be elevated to the status of a minor basilica and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Constructed in 1605, the church houses the sacred relics of St. Francis Xavier, patron saint of Goa. Covered with marble and inlaid with precious stone, it is considered the best example of baroque architecture in India.
