Tranquil Desert Havens

"Every ocean or sea has its own mythology, and though some of it is largely fictional, many of these myths have an element of truth: the Roaring Forties really do roar, and the Pacific can be as peaceful as its name implies. The Red Sea is not exempt from myth-making and, indeed, has perhaps more than its fair share: unmarked reefs, gale-force headwinds, pirates and hostile coastlines occupied by warring nations, to name but a few. However, the myths are in need of updating. As boats and equipment have moved on, so too has the political climate of the region."
