Muscat Part 1


Over the Eid Holidays my husband and I decided to take a weekend trip to Muscat, the capital city of Oman. Just a 5 hour drive from Dubai it was the perfect option for a quick trip. We left around noon and got there around 7:30 because of traffic and some pit stops along the way. By the time we arrived at our hotel we were too exhausted to go anywhere. We decided to call it an early night and woke up bright and early the next morning ready to explore the city. Our first stop was the Sultan's Palace. We were allowed to go inside so we walked around the outer premises for a bit and came across this gorgeous wall of *bougainvilleas. It was so incredibly hot outside at this point of the day but we couldn't resist the chance for a little photo op. The pink begonias were such a striking contrast to the brick wall behind it. Petals from the flowers had fallen below and lined the walkway. It was all so gorgeous. Even though every city has something unique about it, I always find that the smallest details like a wall of flowers or petals on the ground are what make a city special. Capturing these shots was definitely worth standing outside in the hot sun!








*Shout out to my best friend Jamie for telling me that these flowers are actually bougainvilleas and not begonias as was originally stated!
