    GULF OF ADEN AND THE RED SEA     

Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea

For 3 months from February 8, 2008 we travelled through the Isl  amic countries of Oman, Yemen, Eritrea, Sudan and Egypt experiencing a fascinating culture and lifestyle totally unique and foreign to us. The land was desolate and harsh but the people friendly.

We watched our weather windows sailing up the Red Sea  and actually ended up motoring most of the way. At Egypt our engine failed and a frustrating saga unfolded as we struggled to put all the dust, sand and salt behind us!

PASSAGE
MALDIVES TO OMAN

Plenty of new retirees and adventurous souls dream of cruising the world, but travelling involves various  expenses and costs.  If you plan on spending your retirement sailing to different countries, you may want to consider annuities, savings or a retirement plan for your  travel funds. To help calculate the costs to save appropriately, a calculator such as  www.understandannuities.com/calculators/ might be useful in meeting your financial expenses.
