Found out about this a little late but am so excited to contribute to these efforts. I visited Yemen in 2007 and never got the chance to see Socotra. It is still my dream one day, of course would love even more to see peace for the people of Yemen. Thank you and look forward to your book!
I am from the Czech Republic. I visited Socotra island in 2005 and have longed to revisit it ever since. I am a big supporter of Bradt guides, I even once (naively) offered to write a new one about Moldova (still missing, btw.). Currently, I reside in Armenia and of course, on any trip outside my home I use the Armenia Bradt Guide. After the coronavirus break and end of Yemeni war, I would love to show Socotra to my kids with the fresh new Socotra Bradt Guide in hand. Thank you. I wish you all success, good health and spirit. Best regards, Jan Plesinger
March this year, I travelled to Southern Oman for a bird photography trip. During my stay, I learned about Socotra, given that my location in Oman was not too far away from the border of Yemen. Reading about Socotra's unique nature ... hence, it needs all the support it can get.
We are big travelers but look at traveling as a way of knowing and respecting the earth and ecological system in addition to respecting all the locals and culture around the globe. I have never heard of Socotra but after researching more of it, this is such a worthy cause! Thank you for doing this and the monetary support is the least we can help. Susan Chu and Joyce Tang
