Sky Watch Memories

In the process of presenting memories from our stay in Asia and the Middle East some years ago, I first give you the sea reflections when leaving Pulau TinggiThe Malaysian Islands became a often visited target when we wanted to have some days off, but once in the lifetime experience can we call our meeting with the world´s only country beginning with an O. Oman and the capital Muscat is a place we highly recommend. We stayed at Al Bustan Palace Muscat, but for this Friday blogpost I think Tullens meeting with the desert sheik is more representative.We had a journey through the desert to and from Oman, as a part of our management meeting in Dubai. In addition to the Gold Souk and the Carpet market, the Persian Gulf at Holiday Inn Beach Club is high on our memory list.

Once upon a time there was this great and fantastic group of people who blogged and photographed … with a click, click here, a snap, snap there, all of them had a week to look upon the sky … day and night, by dusk or dawn, sunrise or sunset … and always there where great and fantastic photos to be seen when SKY WATCH was opened …

I am one of those proud sky watchers and I really enjoy each and every one of the photos you show us. I really think you are a first class sky watcher!

And a globetrotter, too...

Ja, GaWo er jenta si det, og uten dere mannfolk hadde ikke denne blogginga vært helt den samme.

Men så fikk du da utmerkelse av meg i går også da snuppen.

Nå har jeg tresmak i baken og firkantede øyne her, lei av SW allerede denne uka. Nå vener Jo Nsbø, ikke i senga, men i bokform.

Natta kos herfra.

Nå kom du meg i forkjøpet, jeg skulle jo komme hit og fortelle deg det. Men men du har virkelig fortjent denne utmerkelsen for alle dine informasjonsrike innlegg og ikke minst fine bilder.

Jeg har ikke vært i østen før men det frister veldig når jeg ser dine bilder fra Beijing og Malaisia.

Ha en fortsatt fin kveld.

Det er så interresant å lese om og se bilder fra alle reisene deres.Skulle gjerne sett mer av verden,men jeg får vel nøye meg med litt nærmere trakter siden vi har valgt å ha hunder,så turene våre går med bil,gøy det og.Ha en fin sommer!
