An account by one of the Explorer Scouts who gained his Explorer Belt in the Sultanate of Oman during August 2018.

Rory Baxter Oman 1

On the 4th August, a group of 30 Explorer and Network Scouts from all over the UK, left from Heathrow and Glasgow airports on their way to Oman in the Middle East. Arriving in Muscat, the capital, we were about to start our Explorer Belt expeditions. In teams of three or four, we went around the country completing a number of tasks. Each team had a main project, five tasks they had chosen, and five completely new challenges they had never seen before. These challenges could vary wildly; my team had one challenge to collect every type of coin, and another to visit the boat factory in the city of Sur. This helped to make it even more interesting than it already was.
