School visits to Oman, Saudi and South Korea

King Abdullah University Jeddah


What an extraordinary couple of months! World Book ‘Day’ became eight weeks of solid work, including three fantastic foreign trips to international schools in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Muscat in Oman and Jeju Island in South Korea.

I had wonderful hosts at all the schools. All librarians, who treated me grandly, supplying endless cups of tea and taking me out sightseeing and dining. I worked with hundreds of children, whose exuberant welcomes, enthusiasm and sheer love filled my heart daily.

And at the British International School in Jeddah, I was finally given what I have secretly long for for fifteen years – a book door!! I was impossibly thrilled 🙂
