BGTW travel writers head for Oman
#BGTW Chair @melissashales has 'pulled a rabbit from the hat' by announcing that the Jan 2011 AGM will take guild members to Oman. Just weeks after the British Guild of Travel Writers' well-advanced and ground-breaking plans to hold the AGM (normally attended by 70-90 members) in the Palestinian city of Jericho, had to be called off, Melissa and Representation Plus MD, Alison Rice, secured the invitation from Oman's Ministry of Tourism at last week's World Travel Market.

The first really big breaking wave is quite beautiful, awesome. I see
what I think to be a white cloud coming into view at the windscreen.
It's the breaking crest of the wave, and just underneath it is enough
translucence in the water to see a spectacular deep blue, the kind of
intense and vivid colour you see in a glacier. Terrifying power and
breath-taking beauty all in one.

Clive Tully, Confronting Poseidion (2002)
