Where am I for so long? Kuwait!

If you’re first time here, you probably think that’s a weird title. Well, it’s not actually, as I haven’t been posting any updates for the last two years.

Why? You ask? Well, as this is some sort of a travel journal for me going to new places, and the only place I’ve been traveling to in the past two years is back and forth between Kuwait and Croatia, I failed to see something to write about.

But, there is always something to write about, if one has time. There has been a lot of change in my life, in the past two years. My company has changed its policy regarding their field engineers travelling, and decided to station people in certain areas which they cover.

I got Kuwait.

I must say, Kuwait has never been my favorite. If I could choose one Middle Eastern country I like best, I think I would say Oman. Why? Well, Omani people are really very friendly and will always approach you with a smile. I’m not saying in other countries they will not, but I’ve experienced it the most in Oman.

Oman has amazingly varied scenery, unlike Kuwait. Kuwait has flat desert, one hill, some farmlands in the North, trashy animal farms seeded through the desert, dirty oil fields and that’s about it. Virgin desert in West Kuwait is nice. Traveling there can keep you mind of the rest of Kuwait 🙂 Maybe I’ve just been here for too long.

When I look at my photos of Oman, you don’t see stuff like that here. For instance

Also, you can’t go out for a beer with friends in Kuwait. It’s not like I would do it all the time, but once in a while you want to chill out. There’s no chillin in Kuwait.

Good times with Javi

Why I didn’t choose UAE? Maybe I would have, but I haven’t really seen much of UAE. I’ve spent 99% of my time there in Dubai. And Dubai is a big crowded city, where nothing is for free, and it’s just not my thing. I’ve seen what I wanted to see in Dubai and that’s pretty much it. Right now, there is pretty much only one reason I would wanna go back there.

So how to end this rant about Kuwait? Let’s just say I really miss travelling around the world. Still haven’t been to a lot of places, China, Russia, India, Australia, South America. Maybe another time, maybe another life.
