Angel Chow -
the author from “Fall in Love with Middle East” and “Passion in Iran”, loves people and culture. Having studied tourism in Australia sparked her enthusiasm in travelling and her curiosity with the world. Her lifelong dream in this short life is to travel around the world and make friends with people from all different types of races whilst doing so. Become acquainted with various cultures, savour life from different perspectives with an ultimate aim to visit 100 countries, having already achieved 90 countries. On each and every trip she will use her eyes to see, ears to listen and heart to reach out to others.
Back in Oman once again to team up with Omani friend Mehdi to bring about this book “To Oman with Love”, is to emphasise the fact that well worth considering, although the Middle East to many people is a region constantly at War, it is also comprised of many peaceful countries like Oman that make travelling desirable. Moreover, Oman is a country dedicated to protecting and conserving its natural resources and environment.
