What’s Your Favorite Spot in Kuwait?

By | March 22, 2012

I’ve recently encountered this question and I was about to answer when suddenly I was tongue tied. I love Kuwait, its my birthplace, my country, my family, my home, and my entire being. I take pride in being a Kuwaiti. I miss Kuwait terribly whenever I travel. Yet when I wanted to answer the question: where is my favorite spot in my own country Kuwait, I failed miserably!

Its just there are too many favorite spots! Some are still there, some are long gone, and some are still yet to come. Its hard to choose one. I know that in 2002 it used to be the Aquarium’s walkway. That was long before people had discovered it and it was very serene and quite and beautiful. Another place that keeps flashing in my mind is the fountain that used to be in Avenues phase II and is now removed because of phase III construction. I loved sitting in Starbucks or Casper & Gambini’s with a cup of coffee overlooking the colorful fountain when the weather was nice. I love the quietness of the place, how it was secluded from other parts of the avenues. But did I love it enough to be my favorite spot in my country? I don’t know!

What about you? Do you have a definite answer to that question? Where is your favorite spot in Kuwait?

    7am sea coast, the hard rock cafe strip ! Fresh Crisp air, the Kuwait Skyline in view from a distance, runners, early morning mothers group having breakfast, few super kids up and running, young guys training, old couple chatting and sipping tea, people fishing ..simply Bliss! :- )
