Oman Tour for Christmas

This Oman Tour for Christmas by British travel company ‘The Traveller’ may turn out to be the last guided tour of Oman I organise under their name. The Traveller was purchased by Steppes Travel, and though I will have Christmas groups under Steppes own name – The Traveller has been a real treat to organise tours for.

Christmas Greetings from Oman

Special Greetings to you – from Rudolph the Red Nosed Camel and me, here in Oman

Here in Oman, rather than Reindeer, Father Christmas needs to use Camels, sand is quite different from snow of course. Since Father Christmas is no longer as young as he once was, his memory is sometimes poor so he naturally gives all his Sleigh pullers the same set of names.

I was lucky to find Rudolph the Red Nosed Camel, just before they set off last year in Oman. The NORAD Santa Tracker will follow his worldwide journey http://www.noradsanta.org/en/home.html .

I know he would want to wish you a very special Christmas and a great New Year for 2009 – as do I.
