Life in Kuwait: Getting Around

20180924_182939

I bought my first car from the money I saved when I was 24 years old. I had a 1999 honda civic and I still love it. I didn’t realize how much I struggled until I bought that car. One thing I miss about being in the states is the convenience of driving. I could drive in Kuwait if I wanted to, but the question is do I want to drive in Kuwait?

The answer is no. Why? You might ask since I miss driving in all? The answer to your question is very simple, people drive crazy here. They make road rage in the states look like child’s play. People are so aggressive that even as a passenger I get stressed out. There are so many times when I almost got in an accident. I have actually been in two accidents.

All About my Baecation in Barbados

What a time to be alive with conveniences like Uber when we need a ride or Uber eats when we don’t feel like cooking. In my lifetime there was such thing as letters that you sent in the mail. I actually had a penpal back in those times. I mean it was my cousin, but still, we sent actual letters through the actual mail. It is amazing that writing letters were a thing that existed now that we have email. There is also What’s App. Before What’s App, I ran up my mom’s phone bill trying to stay in contact with this guy I met in Jamaica. This is when people used calling cards. You went to the store and bought cards with minutes when those minutes ran out the call would drop. My little desperate teenage self decided to use the regular phone line when I ran out of minutes and got myself into trouble. Anyway now there is What’s App, Hallelujah and this is how I maintain my long-distance relationship.

I went to Barbados from Kuwait and let me tell you it was a journey for real. It basically took about 36 hours of total travel time. I had two long layovers and 1 long flight. With a journey like this, of course, I have stories.

First, I’m going to start with the fact that the employees at Doha Hamad Airport in Qatar are the most pleasant people I have ever come across at an airport. There is a huge difference between Kuwait’s Airport and Qatar. Besides the actual set up and feel, Qatar is just better by a long shot.

Life in Kuwait: Groceries

When adulting you have to buy groceries to live. You can eat out every night, but that gets expensive. I bought groceries many times that went bad just because I didn’t feel like cooking. I also notice that most of my unhealthy food choices came from being extremely hungry and I was extremely because I didn’t prepare my food to go. So I decided that I had to have my food ready to go.

“Yeah yeah it’s the weekend baby, whooo!”

When I heard this on the radio it would make my day. My weekend starts promptly on Thursday’s and ends abruptly on Saturday. It took time to get adjusted to the change and for the longest time I would say Thursday/Friday for the start of the weekend and Sunday/Monday for the start of the week.
