I Know What You Did Last Summer...

.... and this summer and next summer too, if you're like most Kuwaitis... But I'd like to think that Bloggers are a bit more "original" and forward-thinking in their vacationing habits.

So what are your travel plans for this summer, if any? (Great article, by the way)

Top prize for originality!

  1. I'm goin', goin'.. back, back.. to Cali, Cali..

    Except in December, since I don't get the summer off.

    Not original, I know, but do I get points for singing it?

  2. I haven?t had a summer vacation for the past 5 years. My summers were spent going back to Kuwait. This summer, no Kuwait for me. Will spend it in Europe, not on vacation though.

    I have a couple of friends who went to Iceland last summer, they said it was amazing, maybe they can win the prize?

  5. I'm planning to go to Croatia, but, since they don't have an embassy here, I will have to go to a Shengen country first, then make a move from there.

  7. Im staying home (Kuwait) ...being half American is not fun during the long summer holiday here...most of the half breeds travel and I end up spending my time playing videogames or watching DVDs ( set Boxes )

    Oh well..there is always cooking...BBQ ribs anybody?

  9. Z,

    If you have any recommendations regarding Croatia; cities, beaches, joints, please let it all hang out!

    Cheers

  10. jambino... I was a kid when I went, but Dubrovnik is where it's at, a postcard city. Sveti Stefan is a must see as well (or is that in Montenegro?)

  11. شفيه التل السياحى؟

  12. Z,

    So you went there when it was still Yugoslavia, I take it. Now things are different. I'm still trying to figure out the logistics of going to Croatia without passing through Slovenia because this means I need two visas in addition to Shengen. Dang!

    I'm hoping to go there by land from Italy (i.e. train or car rental), but it looks difficult.

    I wonder if English is widely spoken over there.

  13. Hmm.. I know some people who gave up their plans for Croatia because it was too darn complicated

  14. جيبوتى عندهم أحلى كنار او ما يسميه أخوتنا اللبنانيين العنّاب

    حقنتين بنسلين و كرتون علب تونا و فول و حبوب بنادول كل ما تحتاجه لقضاء وقت ممتع فى ربوع القارة السمراء


    ما أدرى ليش الشعب وايد ميت على النحشه ...والله صيف الديرة ما كو عليه...قمة الوناسة إذا كنت تعرف ما هى الوناسة الحقيقية...و ما تسوى عليك إتصير هدف للإرهابيين فى أوروبا و لا لبنان...عبالهم أجنبى مع شورتك و ويهك الأملط و تى شيرتك الضيق...و شعرج بو هايلات شقره و ركبج المبيضة و آى بودج الوردى اللى متروس أغانى ماريا كارى ... خلكم بالكويت و تمتعوا بالطاقة الشمسية ...كل شى بارد حلو...و لحظة دخول البيت بتكييفه البارد بعد العودة من مشوار مركز سلطان تسوى شهر فى أى دولة أوروبية ما فيها حتى مروحة بغرفة الفندق

  16. this from the wanna be travel agent: croatia can be reached by any means but without a visa forget it. and as long as you're not a resident in the schengen region you can't be issued with a visa to croatia. hence our scrapped trip. if the borders are porous you can manage zarga but i highly doubt it. considering the number of refugees already in the EU. according to some you can go via sarajevo where they love kuwaities there becuase most of the islamic fighters decided marrying a beatuful blonde and settling down in the rolling hills of bosnia with their cash is much better than sheefat bin laden in afghanistan. there are dedicated kuwaiti and saudi neighbourhoods and we definately don't need a visa. and apparenty the party scene is kicking. now that is an original holiday. or fjord norway!

  20. I'm going to Taiwan tomorrow to represent Kuwait for the 37th International Chemistry Olympiad. (http://icho.chem.ntnu.edu.tw/). I'll stay two weeks there. Just enough to learn something about the country and its culture. I even have a friend there who I'm going to visit. After Taiwan, I'm coming back to Kuwait to take some driving classes (Yay 18!) and hopefully get my license so I could cruise around the beautiful Kuwaiti streets with Kuwait. By the end of the summer I have to be in Bahrain where I'm going to study. ...and that's much about it.

  31. Zaydon, I had to ask :)

    Mother Courage, you got something better? yalla a change is always good :)

  32. Zaydoun Mabrouk on the new address, however you should have mentioned on your old blog that you're moving and put a link as not everyone has updated their links. I got to you from the blogger profile.

    It's just old London for me, so if you're there let me know. I went to Dubrovnik as well when it was part of Yugoslavia *sigh* so I would recommend the place to anyone if you can get your visas right.

Keep it clean, people!
