O is for Oman – the roundabout sultans of swing

O is for Oman – the roundabout sultans of swing

The tourism slogan for Oman is,  ‘beauty has an address’. Whoever their ad agency is deserves to be paid a lot of money and for the sheer simplicity and impact of the statement.

The Tsaatan are the last reindeer herders who have survived for thousands of years inhabiting the remotest areas of Mongolia and moving between 5 and 10 times a year usually when the seasons change.  They are the last of the truly semi-nomadic tribes.

K is for Kazakhstan – Hot Spot: Borat and Prince Harry should know

If Borat and Prince Harry have discovered Kazakhstan, it will not be long before this place is on everyone’s agenda.

J is for Japan – some unusual facts

We go to Japan regularly yet I still wander about a lot of things. Maybe these things might explain what you have also thought about. Inemuri Japanese can literally sleep anywhere.
