I have this really silly travel theory where I always though that the countries closer to me and more accessible to me should be visited later and the ones that are further way should be visited first. I have no reasonable or logical or even sensible thought behind this idea but this is why I didn’t go to Sri Lanka till work took me there this year and I fell in love. It is also the same bizarre reason why I’ve never been to the Middle East or the Gulf region. While I don’t discriminate with countries it just seemed to make sense to visit the ones that were a short flight away later ( I do realize that most folks do it the other way round but when have I ever done anything most folks do ). This month I had a quick trip to the Kingdom of Bahrain that marked my first visit to the Gulf ( not even Dubai if you can believe it ) and while I didn’t know what to expect,
Two travel bloggers from different parts of the world had been before and both spoke so highly of the country that it has piqued my curiosity. I ended up having an amazing trip and came home longing to re visit just like they did. The thing with most trips because of work or the time I can spend away from work is that they tend to be short ones and while I usually extend even work trips to soak in a place, this time I just couldn’t and managed to enjoy Bahrain in a measly three days. Soaked in as much as I could, Ate as much as I could stomach ( my god the food is incredible ) and learned as much as I could about their culture from incredibly friendly locals. Should I visit again, I’m going to spend more time sight seeing and understanding their food better but till then, these are a few pictures from my blissful weekend in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
I will write another post on my highlights of Bahrain and also post some recipes of the dishes I enjoyed the most. If you’ve been to the country or live there and have tips or suggestions about Bahrain I’d love to hear them!
