Naija Expat Wife
I am Stella, an International Commercial Lawyer, married to an Oil and Gas Expatriate (the love of my life *winks*) in Oman. We have spent two years in Oman, and within these years, our adorable princess was born. Despite adjusting to motherhood (wonderful experience and I am always grateful to God) and working part time for a reputable International Consulting firm, I still find time to blog about my experiences in Oman. This is not my first time abroad, but this is my first time in the Gulf.
This blog is primarily about life & news in the Sultanate of Oman. Mr Sythe is a Western expatriate who has been living in the Sultanate of Oman for 5 years and started the blog Muscat Mutterings on the 26th July 2009. The blog is jam packed full of really useful information about life in Muscat and has had over 10 million views!

Dhofar is the Southern province in the Sultanate of Oman. Salalah is the capital city of Dhofar (in fact, the only city). Salalah is unique in many ways. After a week or so of posts, you'll begin to know why. As a Salalahtarian, I have insider's input. If you follow my blog, you'll begin to appreciate (if not already) the richness of our amazing little town. Salalah is very special, and very different.If you're wondering why I'm fluent in English, it's because I spent several years studying abroad. However, I am a Salalah girl through and through. . I have a lot of positive (and rather amusing) things to write about.
