Life Lately: R&R

Well, Hello there! It's been a while.

I took a bit of an unplanned break from the blogging and social media world and, well, life in general.

So, what have I been up to?

For the Eid holidays, we took a nice, long holiday starting in Singapore and ending in Bali, Indonesia. The holiday was a good mix of sightseeing, activities, and relaxation. I never decided if I should blog about my holidays. Primarily I see this as a blog about Oman, and my day-to-day life here. But being here means that we do have access to other places in the world and the means to explore them, and that still counts as life outside the M25, right?

When we came back, I suffered from a serious case of the holiday blues. I did have my birthday to look forward to, though, and my husband took me out for a meal at the new Indian-fusion restaurant in Al-Kuwair. I could have eaten a meal made up of just their panipuri shots. It is one of those unique restaurants that everyone needs to try at least once.
The nice thing about coming back to Oman in October is that the weather is cool enough to start doing activities at the weekend. I plan on blogging more about this, but we've mostly been diving taking advantage of those two-for-one Entertainer vouchers that are soon to expire. We also went camping, which, surprisingly, I enjoyed. We still need to add to our kits before we can consider ourselves proper campers, and I'll blog about that soon, too.

So after all the adventures, and a break from social media I am feeling suitably recharged and ready for winter in Oman. Do let me know if you would like to hear a little more about my travels, and what you are looking forward to doing this winter.
