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.

I only managed to spend 24 hours in what can only be described as the crazy city. It fealt like all I did was zoom around to try to fit in as much as possible. The postcard photo chosen is therefore very appropriate. I was amazed how little the horn was used by these people. The roads were still noisy – but it was only the more tolerable (and necessary) engine noise.

The smiles were many and genuine. People here are very friendly. I will come back one day. Inshallah.

It was fun to watch the show of the window-cleaners at Bangkok Airport. They really looked like they were having a good time, which made everyone at the airport smile.
