In November 2005 I attended a United Nations/ESA/NASA Workshop on the International Heliophysical Year IHY 2007, held in the oasis Al-Ain in the United Arab Emirates. While there I made a brief visit to Buraimi in Oman.

In February, 2006 I visited Jordan and Egypt. I spent two weeks in Egypt and one week in Jordan. The trip was organized by Overseas Adventure Travel.

In June/July I visited Turkey for two weeks. In the two weeks I drove a total of over 6,000 km (3,700 miles). But Turkey is a pretty big country, so I saw only the western ⅔rd of the country. It was faszinating to see all the historical sites.

In May 2018 I visited Cyprus as part of a longer Mediterranean visit. There are a lot of historical sites in Cyprus, especiallly the Byzantine painted churches were faszinating.

In December 2018 I visited three more Middle Eastern countries, this time in the Persian Gulf, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar. This was a short trip. All three countries are so small you can see everything worth while in a day or two.
