Exploring the (Almost) Abandoned Ghost Town of Cisco, Utah

An occupied property in Cisco, Utah

Utah’s biggest tourism draws are it’s highly photogenic public lands (Five National Parks and a National Monument) and snow-packed mountain ski destinations. But if you’re visiting Moab and want to check out something different, it’s worth driving to the scenic – and almost entirely abandoned- ghost town of Cisco.

Exploring Oman: Dune Bashing and Glamping at Desert Nights Camp

Ana exploring the Sharqiya sands region of Oman 

It’s always fun exploring a new country and while I enjoyed Muscat and the mountains of Jebel Akhar, by far the most memorable time I spent in Oman was glamping in  the desert. I spent a night at the Deserts Night Camp and, if I were to plan the trip again, I would have spent at least two nights exploring this very beautiful Wahiba Sands/Sharqiya Sands area of the country.

Exploring Oman: a Photo Tour of Muscat

Located on the Persian Gulf, the Sultanate of Oman has become a bit of a buzzy destination. Located in a strategically important position on the Arabian peninsula, Oman wants the world to know it’s more tolerant than Saudi Arabia and Yemen (with which it shares borders). While it lacks the breathtaking buildings of its flashier neighbor, the UAE, Oman has many charms and an interesting history, much of it centered in the capital city of Muscat.
