Most of the conversations with friends and family this time of the year revolve around travel.  My wife’s last day at work yesterday signals the start of the family’s summer holiday, which is mostly spent outside Kuwait.  I will, God willing, join them on two separate short trips – the first of which will be late July.

The images in this video are not new.  Readers of this blog will have already come across them.  I had some fun with the globe widget, and enjoyed trying to fit it all into 80 seconds.  It’s not perfect, but I like the end result.  The background singing is of traditional Kuwaiti sea songs – something I associate very strongly with travel.

Whatever you’re doing this summer, and wherever you’re spending it, I wish you all the best.

    Holy smokes, By Yousef, you’ve been spending a lot of time traveling! Great visual, and love the music. 🙂

    • Thanks… This is a virtual trip just to make sense of the photos. I didn’t actually fly this route.

  3. Missed Mexico. Must add 3 more seconds or so. 🙂
    Great music.

  4. I think I’ll need longer than that 🙂
    Mexico is definately on the hopefully-one-day list.

    • And for those of us who don´t speak a word of Arabic, could you please translate what the song says?

  5. The pics look beautiful..The pic at 47 second is the best I like 😀 Good Luck
