Forty of our favourite photos from our 2023 trip to Oman. This wonderful country truly is a geologists’ paradise and we visited a whole range of sites on this trip.
Morocco 2022 – a photo diary
In November 2022, we took a group of intrepid travellers on our “Trilobite’s Sahara Kingdom” geological tour of Morocco. Our 10-day trip across the Atlas mountains to the Sahara Desert was not only a trilobite extravaganza but also took in a dinosaur discovery site, mineral mines and various historic sites. This is a summary and selection of the best photos from the trip.
Germany 2022: a summary & photo diary
We returned to Germany in October 2022 for our “Volcanoes and Famous Fossil Sites” tour. The sites didn’t fail to impress! Our group was able to enjoy some exceptional fossil specimens in various museums, as well as visiting fossil discovery sites and searching for their own fossils. Visits to Ice Age caves and volcano sites rounded off a fantastic trip! We look forward to returning next year!
