7 Muscat, the capital of Oman. “Muscat is the focus for the revamp, with cultural events, luxury accommodation and aquatic activities taking centre stage. This year it’s all about Qurum’s trendy designer outlets, Old Town souks and wacky water sports enlivening its coastline alongside traditional dhows. Muscatis are still genuinely interested to see visitors, so much so that first-timers might have the odd feeling of returning to the house of an old friend.” (LonelyPlanet)

This, according to Wikipedia, is a bay on the Atlantic coast of North America, on the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a small portion touching the U.S. state of Maine. Some sources believe the name “Fundy” is a corruption of the French word “Fendu”, meaning “split”,while others believe it comes from the Portuguese fondo, meaning “funnel”.

    The two dining establishments beneath the bridge are Snoopy’s and Doc’s. Snoopy’s seems to be the much more remarkably regarded, but we do not comprehend why. Snoopys is just a fried fish-shack. You order at the counter and select up your unique meals served on paper plates. It is money only, and it has no bar just beer. Doc’s has waiters, real plates, and a complete bar. They each have terrific sunset views about the lagoon, but neither appeared to have air-conditioning.
