Oman's Ministry of Tourism kindly sponsored this book and three other government ministries supported the content with suggestions. Their input enabled this hardback coffee table book to be published in 2013, with photography by me. Its available through Amazon and in bookshops in Oman.
This book was a pleasure to work on - as I was also lecturing on a small 100 passenger 'expedition' ship. In November 2012 I stepped on board the small cruise ship 'Clipper Odyssey' as a lecturer.
I wrote about the exploration and provided a few images for a souvenir book 'Sands of Time' sent to each participant.
These booklets represent a project in co-operation with Oman's Ministry of Tourism.
In 2013, after sponsoring my UNESCO book, Oman’s Ministry of Tourism asked me to provide texts (there would be a separate booklet for Arabic & English) , maps and images for a booklet on Dhofar in southern Oman.
Following that, in 2014 they wanted the same work done for each of Oman’s 10 other governorates.
This was quickly followed by a similar project for Oman's geology.
These booklets, of up to 75pages, give an idea of the tourism in each governorate in Oman.
