Of the many options available for a Europe Vacation, Italy is one of the most popular for a reason; it offers a wealth of history, culture, and attractions to suit the tastes of just about everyone. While most any itinerary to Italy can be fabulous, it pays to talk with others who have already been there. I researched some tips for you if you are ever planning a great Italy vacation: Read the rest of this post »
A friend of ours from Bananaq8 recently bought a new pair of UGGs summer collection from ShoeboxNY. Upon paying at the cashier, she was informed that with every purchase of KD25 worth of Uggs at any ShoeboxNY store, there is one chance to participate in a draw to give two lucky winners a 7-day round-trip and accomodation to the sunny city of Los Angeles, California for some absolute sun fun. She filled out the coupon, and…
She is now somewhere tanning on Cali Beaches, enjoying the scenery and hollywood life-style.
If you want to be a lucky winner with ShoeboxNY, visit any of the stores and enter the draw. Best of luck to everyone!
The weekend is almost here and my friend is standing next to me, asking me the same question I hear almost every week – what are you up too this weekend? I smiled and asked the same question back. “I’m probably going to head to the beach.” Why do we always just do the typical things to do here in Kuwait and then we end up complaining that “there isn’t much to do,” and “let’s travel for the weekend for a change.” There are things to do; we just choose not to do them. So, I put together a list of the things I decided I’m going to do on weekends from now on:
1.) Green Island! Even though my parents used to take us there when we were kids, I haven’t stepped foot in Green Island since (and I bet a lot of you haven’t either). Green Island is the perfect spot to spend the whole day and enjoy your time with family and friends. This beautiful Island is open from 8 AM – 11 PM daily with an entry fee of just 1 KD. There are many activities for children as well as adults, and on both sides of the Island there are restaurants serving local and international dishes, as well as other attractions like a theatre where concerts and plays are exhibited live, and a tower 35 meters high from where you can have a good view of the city. Contact No: 22526153
2.) Paint Ball. Feel like killing someone? LOL, take them out to the paintball field and shoot them! Besides relieving stress, this activity is good exercise as well as an excellent experience if you’ve never tried it. The field is 5000 square feet and they will provide you with a variety of action packed games, guns, and equipment. Call 22431101 for more information. 3.) Remember the story behind the House of Mirrors? 77 tons of mirror and 102 tons of white cement have been used to create the mosaics that decorate the entire house. I heard that Lidia Al- Qattan, the owner, is very friendly and anyone is welcome to visit at any time. But try to make sure to call ahead of time (22518522) just so that you’re not intruding. The address is Qadsiya, Block 9, Street 94, House 17.
Are you into basketball and follow NBA? Well, I received this invitation for Hoop Mountain Basketball Camp in Kuwait that will be hosting the former NBA pro basketball ball player Adam Harrington. The organizers said the event will include:
Lottery Draw (a chance to shoot a 3 point Basket & Win a Holiday Package for two).
Meet players and coaches.
Now the great news, I’m willing to giveaway the ticket, just submit any comment and you are eligible to win.
Where: Al Bayan Bilingual School, Hawally.
When: Saturday 27th April at 10:15 am
Winner: We used Random.org for the draw, winner is commenter#2, congrats.
It’s been long time since I posted any Parkour (free-running) videos, yes by now I presume you all know that I’m officially a Parkour addict. Our fit friends PK Jaguars have shared with us their latest footage performing art of motion Al Sawaber Complex. This time the footage was created in association with TJC Films and the result is one exciting video that looks rather like a rap video or action movie.
I wish I could learn doing parkour myself that’s if I’m not considered old in age, but if I have the stamina and the needed flexibility (and the drive) I don’t see why not.
