Thirty-six. That’s how many hours we had in Dubai this weekend. And I think we made the most of it. It’s not long at all. And I’d made various lists of places to see and eat. Sure it was a little disappointing not being able to tick as many things off. BUT nothing beats some time away from home – feeling that holiday feeling. It’s been so long. (not counting that little trip to London)
Bath is a beautiful town. And I’m glad I got to spend just a couple of days taking in what I could. In this edition of Remember When… I’m going back to May, 2013. It was an emotional time for me. See, I was staring down the barrel of a long-distance relationship. What do you do in that situation? Well, go for a few days away to forget about things for a little while.
It’s been a while since I’ve written about doing anything “out and about” in Bahrain. Summer hits and it’s too damn hot to even want to do anything. Thankfully, the weather is now beginning to break! Days are still hot, but more bearable. The evenings though – they’re becoming the perfect.
This past Monday evening, we capitalised on Anish’s day off and headed off for the evening to see some cars. Yes, cars. This is a shared passion. Well, not really a passion for me, but big interest. BIG. Thanks to my brother and dad most likely. Dad liked his cars, and racing in general. My brother’s always been into them too. And somewhere along the lines that permeated into me.
While a lot of other 365-ers out there are taking photos of the beautiful Autumn weather, much of my September looked the same as my August, July, and June. That’s what Bahrain’s got going for it – consistency.
September saw me take part in my first Instagram Challenge – Tales of September, set up by Tori. Taking photos based off of prompts isn’t something I’m good at. Especially with me never leaving the home during work weeks. So it was challenging! Worth it. However, not sure I’ll be taking part in another for a while…
I’ve spent the last few days of September in London. This #emailgeek was very happy to have finally gone to her first Email Design Conference and have another go at this speaking malarkey! Excellent experience all around and would totally do it again.
And as I write this from my old home in the UK, I’m looking forward to be heading back to my real home in Bahrain on Sunday.
Please let the days start to get cooler. Please? Just the other day it was about 36 degrees C outside, but the feels like temperature was in the 50s. With 84% humidity. At 1am. This. This is life in Bahrain in the summer.
By the looks of the photo highlights I’ve picked out for August 365 photos, it just looks like I spent the entire month eating. In my defence though, there’s not a lot of other things to do in Bahrain when it gets this hot. It’s either eating, going to the mall and drinking. Well, okay. Sorry. That’s not fair. But I think it’s fair to say those are probably the most popular things to do.
