On our quest to fill "holes" in our geographical experience, we did a very interesting 20-day cruise on Oceania's Nautica this November. We flew to Barcelona, Spain; then sailed to Sicily; to Israel for a couple of days to see Jerusalem, Masada, and the Dead Sea; down the Suez Canal to Luxor and Karnak, Egypt; Aquba, Jordan to see Petra; Salalah and Muscat, Oman; and finally Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the UAE. We sailed on some new, for us, bodies of water, such as the Red Sea, Gulf of Oman, and the Persian Gulf. Camera-wise, I traveled light with the Fuji X-T3 and X-E3 bodies and three lenses between the two bodies. It proved to be an almost perfect package. Despite having a fair number of "sea days," the trip was rather grueling, as four of our major destinations: Jerusalem, Masada/Dead Sea, Luxor/Karnak, and Petra, required long, overland journey's before and after each destination. Several days were over 14-hour trips.

I have divided the photos into 7 collections that can either be accessed from the home page or their collection folder: Middle East 2022. Please enjoy.
