In addition to the images I have started sharing from Socotra Island, I also have quite a few photographs from my recent road trip through Saudi Arabia where I drove over 6000km from the UAE all the way to the border with Jordan and back.
Most people are not really familiar yet with the tourist attractions in Saudi Arabia, but the country is huge and it has so many unexplored places to offer. I will start with this striking wreckage of a Catalina seaplane which crashed on a beach in the Gulf of Aqaba in 1960 after being shot at by a group of Bedouins working with the Saudi army. The owner of the plane, a businessman by the name of Thomas Kendall, had converted it into a luxury seaplane ready for a trip around the world. They were spending the night there and the Bedouins thought they were Israeli spies. Both him, his children and his secretary survived the accident and were late released after being interrogated in Jeddah.
