Back in Oman after the Vacation of a Lifetime!

If you’ve never been to the Philippines, I highly recommend traveling there someday if you get the opportunity.  I just got back from a 2-month vacation there with the wife and son.  During our vacation, I tried many new things such as “Zorbing” (on land and in water),

having a python wrapped around my shoulders,

holding one of the world’s largest species of bats (known as “flying foxes”) by the wings,

trying crocodile steak for the 1st time,

parasailing,

                      banana-boat riding,

fly-fish riding,

bat-caving,

buggy car and ATV driving,

reef-walking (also known as “helmet diving”),

             snorkeling, glass-bottom boat touring and island-hopping,

jet-skiing,

and zip-lining (also known as “sky riding”), just to name a few.

                      One of the best parts of our vacation was the one-month stay on Boracay Island.

Many of you might recognize the name of that place as it’s been listed as one of the best beaches in the world.  If you ever do make it to the Philippines, and specifically to Boracay Island, I suggest checking out this website, www.myboracayguide.com , to help you plan where to stay and what to do while there.                                                                 

Of course the best part of the vacation was simply spending time with the family!  Praise God for an unforgettable vacation with His protection, blessings and provisions!                                                                                   It’s been a wonderful vacation but I must say that it’s also nice to be back in Oman.  Spending such a long time away helps me appreciate many things about the Sultanate even more.  I hope you all had (or are having) a great summer!
