+ My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "O" — Some places I've been starting with "O"

"O" is for some places, countries and cities starting with the letter "O" where I have traveled:

 - Countries:
None beginning with "O" -- Oman could be on my ToDo list someday
 - States: (I've been to all 50)
 Large Cities over 100,000 population I've liked:
United States:

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Omaha, Nebraska
Oakland, California
Orlando, Florida
Overland Park, Kansas

Orange, California
Olathe, Kansas


Odessa, Ukraine

So, here goes: 
Odessa -- We were in the Black Sea on our cruise from Venice (Italy) to Istanbul (Turkey) on to the Black Sea and back to Athens (Greece).  We made two stops, one at Yalta and the other to Odessa.  

Unfortunately my pictures are on my laptop that crashed (down to the floor) and also on the memory card that I cannot find.  So take my word for it, Odessa is a beautiful old European city, one founded by Empress of Russia, Catherine the Great, in 1794.  Perhaps by the time we get to "U" (Ukraine) and "Y" (Yalta) I will have resurrected those pictures.

Oman -- (haven't been there yet)

When we do we can Fly Houston to Oman -‎
 - I'm thinking of flying to Muscat, Oman, and then driving up to Dubai.  From there we could take a cruise to places we haven't been and ending in Cape Town, South Africa.
 - How close to Dubai? Answer:  via Route 1 would be 4 h 36 min driving 454 km.

 - Jenny is now on her tenth series of Alphabe Thursday.  With 52 weeks in a year and 26 letters in the alphabet she is now in her fifth year.  I am linked to her blog, GO HERE for more participants and their offerings.
