Re Oman
kercritch - someone where I work has been extolling the virtues of Oman for all things from walking to diving so I read your piece with considerable interest.
Nevertheless I really would wonder about aspects of this. Should the fancy take you, you could have an extended trip to the southerly waters where you will get good basic accomodation for as long as you like or until someone pays the Somalian ransom. Still, I hear that 3 out of 4 ships in the area manage to fight pirates off, so perhaps you would be all right with a few AK47s, RPGs etc.
Then again Oman is next to Saudi Arabia - wonder what would happen if you wandered across the border there? Could be interesting particularly if in a car driven by a woman, but then again there's such great choice of stimulating places such as Iran (so you did bring a camera and GPS .. ?) and various small revolutions in Yemen or Bahrain if you went a bit further.

What did your hostage insurance cost anyway?
