I STAYED WITH A BEDOUIN FAMILY IN THE DESERT IN OMAN | ايفا زوبيك 5

Welcome to Oman! What an incredible country and destination in the Middle East. In my first video in the Oman series, I show you what it's like to live with a bedouin family in the desert.

At the beginning of my Oman trip, I stayed with a real bedouin family, in their desert compound in the Wahiba Sands. I followed them around as they went about their day, tried to help out and filmed bits of their lives to show you just how difficult they have it - and how they manage their day-to-day in one of the harshest environments on the planet.

Thank you for all your wonderful feedback ❤️ I'm so honoured to have been able to stay with this beautiful family, and even more honoured still that they trusted me to film their life and make a video for you all about it. If you enjoyed this vlog, make sure you watch the next one from my Oman series, which is all about how I camped alone in the mountains around Jebel Shams 🙂 See you there 😘

I can feel the happiness of the family even with this short video. I feel so envious of them. They may have a basic life but they have enough, enough food, water supply etc. Don't ever call them poor. Look at the numbers of goats and camels they have. They are certainly rich at heart and very happy with their life. I am so happy I watched this video. Love - sara foo

They have a pick-up truck and a generator? They're richer than me.

When she zoomed out at the end. Quite overwhelming. I can’t imagine living without trees and shade...though I guess it would mean no mosquitoes. The stars must be beautiful at night.

The ancient Beduins lived without any of these modern facilities! Just think about that.

Eva I enjoyed this so much, I currently live in New York and I am now a mother of 5 children ages 10-22 but at one time I was a little dessert nomad child. I used to caravan with my Great Aunt Marrila, and my Great Uncle Warren and my Great Grandmother. It was the best years of my young life. Eventually they got too old and passed away, luckily I was pretty old then around 12-12 so I was able to fend for myself, but my heart yearns for this life again. It is something that I can not even properly describe for my children my past nomadic life, they have only known the comforts and buzz of America and NYC at that. I thank you truly for this gift of memories.

Seems like they are happier where they are compare to where the rest of the world is. Simplicity is truly beauty.
