  1. Salut,

    Je viens de découvrir ton blog sur Oman, qui est assez bien fait d'ailleurs.
    Moi j'y ai vécu un an et demi et j'ai même pas encore trié toutes les photos.

    C'est indiscret de te demander le métier que tu exercais en Oman.


  2. salut jean-luc, je travaillais pour omantel

  3. Re,

    Omantel j'y avais trouvé un bon emploi, mais j'ai été contraint par menace par mon employeur d'origine de refuser l'offre ( j'étais en disponibilité ). Pas glop.
    Tu comptes retourner travailler la bas un jour ?
    je te laisse mon email, supprimes le post une fois lu.


  4. Hi,
    I have added your site to The Expat Directory as I think other Expats/future expats will find this a really useful resource.
    I have added you in the community section here:

    If you wish, you can add a link back to us, info here:

    By the way, I still look back with fond memories of the volcanic like appearance and surroundings of Muscat, especially when entering from the sea. I have never seen anything like it anywhere else in the world.

  8. Salut Flotaz,

    j'ai cherché ton email sur ton blog mais sans succès... je te laisse donc un commentaire...

    Je bosse actuellement au Qatar et je pense venir en Oman pour l'Eid. Déjà, ton blog m'a convaincu que ca allait être canon ! merci !

    Sinon, j'aurais quelques questions :
    connais une compagnie de location de voiture pas chère et bien ?
    Oman pendant l'Eid c'est jouable ou il y a vraiment trop de monde ? (je crois pas que ca me fera changer d'avis mais bon...)

    mon email :

  11. Nice blog. I never thought Oman can be very beautiful. I first saw it in an episode of Amazing Race Asia just last week, and i was instantly drawn to the place. I hope to get there myself and admire the places in person. Thanks!

  12. Well done mate...very good infomation. I was in Oman 2000-01. You views as an expact were so true. I left Oman because of the same reason. My wife & I became bored. Nothing much to do aprat from work. After some time you are doing samr thing and your are going to same places and meeting same people.

    Excellant work & well done.

  19. Hello everyone,

    Quite an interesting blog. I am moving to Oman in a few weeks and was exploring the possibility of a boarding school (a school with a residential hostel) for my kids. Would anyone of you know anything about such schools in Oman. It would be great if you could pass on any information

  21. Bonjour,
    je cherche à connaitre les quartiers sympa de Mascate pour regarder de plus près les prix actuels de l'immobilier (je reflechis à une proposition pour venir y travailler :-) ). Pouriez-vous m'orienter sur les quartiers sympa et ceux à éviter?
    Merci beaucoup. mon email:
