Traveller Megan McCormick ventures into perhaps the most misunderstood region in the world - the Arab Gulf States.
Megan's journey begins in the oil fields of Kuwait, which were set alight and destroyed by the invading Iraqi army of 1990. The nation then celebrates Liberation Day and Megan joins in the festivities on the streets of Kuwait city.
Megan is then invited to stay with a Kuwaiti family who were camping in the desert, a tradition that many Kuwaitis hold dear, and samples some local dishes.
She then makes her way south, across the Arabian Gulf to the United Arab Emirates, where she explores the exciting cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Megan stays at the world famous Burj Al Arab hotel, a landmark of modern Dubai, before going abayya shopping in one of the city's many shopping malls.
In Abu Dhabi, she tees off at a unique desert golf course and meets one of the most flamboyant sheiks in Arabia, who car collection includes a giant custom made Dodge pickup truck!
She travels across the border into Oman and discovers one of the hidden jewels of the Gulf. Immersing herself in the natural beauty, Megan finds herself irresistibly charmed by the country, as she goes swim-trekking in the Wadi Bani Khalid and cattle shopping in Nizwa.
Megan's adventure ends in the south of Oman, in the city of Salalah. She visits the mystical tomb of Job and finds the source of one of the treasures of the ancient world - frankincense.
Led by a Bedouin guide, she treks into the Empty Quarter, which is one million square miles of nothing but sand.
