Au Revoir Kuwait

“Journeys May Come To An End, But Memories Last Forever.”

My time in Kuwait is D O N E. I could actually cry!! I’ve loved every minute of this experience abroad and even though I’m so excited to go home, I’ve made such good friends here and created so many memories with them.

So I’m currently sitting at the airport waiting to catch my flight back to the UK, and I started to reminisce on all of the things I got up to in Kuwait, and it’s made me a little bit emotional! This really has been the best year for me and yes, there were some ups and downs, but I can confidently say I’ve lived in the Middle East for practically a year and lived my best life!

Dampa Feast

For The Love Of Cod!

It’s been a while, but I’m back with a food review! So this week I visited Dampa Feast which is an Asian seafood restaurant in Kuwait, and I actually love this place. It’s so different to standard restaurants, the atmosphere feels like you’re eating street food in the middle of the seafood hotspot in the Philippines and the quality of the food is amazing! This place has become really popular in Kuwait because of the whole concept; you order a load of seafood, the waiter dumps it on your table and you dig in with your hands like a pack of hungry lions!

H&M Store Opening

“The Largest Store In The World”

Like any job, working for H&M has its perks and in this case, I was able to attend the new store opening at The Avenues Mall in Kuwait. It was pretty cool to see the opening from “the other side” and actually experience what it’s like for a big brand like H&M to open a new store. There were staff running around getting the last bits in order, employees from the head office in Sweden visited to check things out, and make sure everything was running smoothly, we had photographers clicking away in the background, waiters walking around with canapés and drinks, and a DJ blasting out music. Outside the store were more photographers, a red carpet and a queue of customers waiting eagerly to enter and explore the new store. Continue reading “H&M Store Opening”

Tourists in Q8

“Never Stop Exploring”

 

Eid al-Adha ’18

If you read my last post about Eid al-Fitr, my Brother and I went to Dubai for the holiday. Well, this time my Auntie came to visit me in Kuwait for the second Eid holiday. I didn’t get to see her when I went home in July so it was nice for her to come over to this side of the world! Of course since she came to visit me I took her around the city, showed her some of the tourist attractions, and obviously we went nuts on the photoshoots!

Eid al Fitr ’18

Yes I know what you’re thinking, “Why are you publishing something that happened during the first Eid?” Well I’m clearly too distracted to post things on time… This has actually been saved in my drafts for a while and I completely forgot about it until we reached second Eid, which I will also have a post about (eventually).

Tee Takes London

 

“Home Is Where The Wine Is”

As most of you have probably seen in my previous post Chapter 21, I went back home for a couple of weeks to celebrate my birthday. The time off work was definitely needed and so was a large glass of wine! Obviously it was great to see my family and friends again too… I was a bit gutted to leave again really, but I’ve only got 4 more months until I’m home for good!

“As One Chapter Closes,

Another One Opens”

After 6 and a half months away from home, I finally reunited with my family and friends to celebrate my 21st birthday. I went back to the UK for 2 weeks and although I loved every minute of it, it was one hell of a holiday.

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

“Sun, Sea and Sand – The Key to Happiness”

11th May 2018,

One of the best days I’ve had since moving to Kuwait. Me and a bunch of pals hopped onto a boat and started our three and a half hour journey to Kubbar island. I’ve always wanted to visit this place, so when we finally planned to go I was more excited than a kid in a candy store…

Turkish Delights

“One Cannot Think Well, Love Well, Sleep Well, If One Has Not Dined Well!”

I didn’t think it was possible to eat as much as I did in Turkey, and there’s a fat chance that I gained a few pounds on the trip, but it was so worth it! The food was really tasty, and the only reason I actually stopped eating, was because we were racking up a pretty big bill most nights… Continue reading “Turkish Delights”

The Reunion!

“It’s As If We Never Parted”

After 5 months apart, and we finally reunited in Turkey! I thought it would be weird meeting again after so long but it honestly didn’t seem unnatural in the slightest. It was like I had my best friend back, and we had the best time I could possibly ask for. We only visited for a long weekend but it was perfect…
