We had 11 days off for Christmas and the Islamic holiday, Eid Al Adha, which just happened to coincide this year. Our plan was to drive through Saudi Arabia and visit friends in Oman and the United Arab Emirates. However, two days before the holiday began we did not have our transit visas from the Saudi embassy. But the day before the holiday began, we got our visas, booked a hotel in Oman, and Saturday morning hopped in the car and took off. Not a lot of planning, but in the end it was an easy trip and a great way to see Oman and the UAE.
