Winter Weekend Escapes - Desert Expeditions (Muscat)

Alot of people have been chatting about the desert crossing that I run. And the interNations regulars on these trips have asked me to put some more information up about them for the public to see.
The desert is a magical beautiful place I’d love to share with you all if possible... so to help answer all your questions, and feed the demand I am extending some brief information here. Please don’t hesitate to contact me either via pm with your email id, or contact me directly to Protected content / Protected content I can send you the information booklet about these events, and help you with any questions you may have. Many best wishes to all.
