We spent nine days in Oman, driving ourselves around and wild camping most nights. We had time for several great hikes, swimming in both wadis and the sea, exploring secluded beaches as well as the mountains, and even visiting forts, souks and mosques.
Romania is more than Transylvania, but that was pretty much what we had time for with only nine days to spend in the country. We did see some very beautiful old towns, take some long walks in nature, eat delicious food almost every day and moved around by train easily.
Our itinerary for two weeks in Sri Lanka during peak season allowed us to see some tea plantations in the mountains, a whole lot of temples, elephants up close, beautiful beaches and some city pulse.
