The Middle East

We've only been once to the Middle East. We flew from London to Dubai, crossing the Middle East, on our way to the Maldives Islands in the Indian Ocean. We had a lot of fun at the "Fly by Dubai" duty free shopping at 2am! The cash machine that dispensed money from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Quatar was the highlight of our stopover.


Seth decided that it was time for a lay-on-the-beach, do nothing vacation. After looking at winter sun brochures, these tiny islands stood out as the perfect place. We spent a week at a Hilton Resort on Rangali Island in January 1997.
