7 Emirates

I had a busy weekend. I have now visited all 7 Emirates and am amazed at how different they can be. I also got to Khasab, a very beautiful place in Oman right at the top of the Arabian Peninsula on the Straits of Hormuz. Traveling through the rugged, mountainous terrain on the road that hugs the coastline reminded me a little of the coast road in New Zealand's southwest. The heat and people reminded me that I was a world away from there. The water was chilly, refreshing, but I got to swim in the sea. Much needed.

I have an article to write on the Emirates for the magazine so that will be my writing assignment for this week. I'm based in town so essentially have 2 extra hours in the day, I hope to make the most of these getting caught up the things I need to do. Five weeks to go, the contract is signed, my flights are booked.  The stopover in the UK needs to be planned and I must get on to beginning the finishing process here.
