Ticker/Planning

[Note: text as it was while we were travelling. At home now, thus finished]

Ticker on where we are at the moment. Latest on top. First some planned stuff (*=booked, **=ideas). Serves for contact and as simple diary.

Due to low energy levels no other destinations.
After long consideration we decided to skip Bahrain and Sabbah. My Energy is low and it would have meant to fly 7 flights in 28 days. Just too much. So Beach vacation in Thailand and a somewhat longer stay, 7 days or so Oman.
