Holiday time again!
It doesn't seem like any time since we were last on holiday - Bulgaria back in July and August - but it is half term already and we are off to sunny Oman for a week!
We are now at Istanbul Airport, Fred having a ten euro large Efes, me catching up with a bit of work on my laptop. We were a bit late in arriving and ut is raining and there was a long queue for visas, so I could not convince Fred to go into the city for a haircut (ha ha!), so we are staying ehre waiting for our connecting flight to Muscat. Great to be in Istanbul though, first time this year.
Fred bought a LOnely Planet guide to Arabia, including Oman, and flickr gives us many clues about where to go. Looks beautiful. Just hoping we are in a north-east monsoon (dry and clear) rather than the humid south-western monsoon.
Had a look at the map in the Turkish Airlines magazine and saw just how close we will be to Pakistan!, sticking all the way out into the Indian Ocean like that!
Hopefully, we will be uploading some piocs as we go along. Cheers for now!
