The latest issue of ‘Wings of Oman’, the in-flight magazine of Oman Air, offers readers a host of fascinating insights this month.
The June issue’s cover story looks into one of the most enduring and recognisable symbols of the Sultanate – the ubiquitous date palms which, from time immemorial, have been nothing short of a lifegiver for the people of Oman. In a country that is renowned for the warmth of its traditional hospitality, visitors to any Omani home are welcomed with warm smiles and an offering of dates and ‘kahwa’, the time-honoured Omani coffee, flavoured with roasted cardamom and rose water.
June’s Wings of Oman also takes readers on a trip to one of the most fascinating, exciting and famous of Indian destinations in ‘Kaleidoscopic Kerala’. Famed for centuries as a centre of the spice and ivory trades, Kerala’s beauty, warmth and charm have made this narrow strip of land on India’s south west coast one of that vast country’s most visited destinations and the ideal lication for the holiday of a lifetime.
Elsewhere in the issue, the Health and Beauty section’s article on ‘Fusion Fitness’ promises a new spin on exercising. Fusion Fitness blends very different disciplines - such as kickboxing and yoga, or aerobics and Pilates - or different styles within a discipline to produce a heady, effective and resultsdriven workout cocktail. Helping the body to develop more strength, agility, balance and coordination than any single-exercise approach, Fusion Fitness may well be the future of fitness.
