Exploring A’Sharqiyah Sands
Photographers know it’s worthwhile to forgo sleep and wake up before dawn. This holds true even if you’re glamping in the desert of Oman.
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.
The Sierra Grande Lodge and Spa in New Mexico
Earlier this week I was on assignment for Glamping.com at the Sierra Grande Lodge and Spa in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. I had a great time enjoying the lodge’s geothermal hot springs and exploring the nearby Ladder Ranch with Ted Turner Expeditions (TTX).
Scarlet goes glamping at the Resort at Paws Up
If you have a dog that you think of as a furry family member and have ever tried to take it on your family vacation, you’ve probably learned that the term “pet friendly” does not necessarily mean “pets welcome.” Sometimes the the reality of traveling with your pet means getting the worst room in the hotel, which smells like a kennel, and the harsh realization that there is a huge difference between hotels that are merely “pet tolerant” and those that truly welcome them.
One of the luxury tented accommodations at Longitude 131
Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, has been on my list of places to visit for years. Last month I finally got my chance to visit Australia’s Red Centre, with a few nights at Longitude 131. With a reputation for being the finest accommodations in Outback glamping, Longitude 131 doesn’t come cheap. My husband and I tried to maximize our bang for the buck by staying one less than the recommended three nights/four full days, and attempting to see as much as we could during our time.
