If you think about Kuwait’s weather, all you can imagine is the heat.

I will leave it to your imagination as to how you would deal with the 50 degree Celsius heat we see here every summer.

But Kuwait has quite a few months of winter as well when the weather is perfect for visiting the numerous parks and beaches.

The one thing which was quite a surprise was the fact that Kuwait has many farms as well. And farms whose pictures make you feel that you are back in India.

Unlike what many others would think, Kuwait has a lot many gardens and parks which are very green and provide quite a respite from the harsh summers and a lovely hangout during the winters.

And add to that, there are also a few farms which while away from the city center are a nice way to spend the weekend and relax.

There are so many of us who love peace and quiet when we are outside don’t we? Whether it’s sitting on a beach and hearing the waves hitting the shore or walking in a park with very few people around and getting a chance to lose oneself amidst all the greenery, we all love some fresh air far away from our busy city lives.

I have always been a passionate traveller and during any of my visits, I always make it a point to visit the ‘quiet places’ to take in some ‘quiet moments’.

I loved the experience of watching the sunset while taking a boat ride off the coast of Kuwait.

Brooklyn Bridge Park was the perfect place to see Manhattan by night. Not too many people around and to top it all, Manhattan looked really beautiful.

Kalemegdan Fort in Belgrade, Serbia gives you a bird’s eye view of the city. While the February chill was too much to take, the evening looked beautiful.

You must be wondering as to how is it possible to get ‘quiet places’ in New York. But I did find Central Park to be really beautiful and peaceful as well. It seemed like the perfect place to get away from the busy city life.

Photography: Rains in Kuwait

It rarely rains in Kuwait. Though the average yearly rainfall as per many meteorological websites is around 100-150mm a year, I guess there are so many times it doesn’t even rain that much. And therefore heavy rains would be up there among the rarest of the rare events.

These pictures are from the beautiful Shaheed Park after the rains in November 2018. It was the start of the rainiest winter I have seen in Kuwait in my stay of half a decade. The trees look really fresh after the rain.

This is from my flight this February which I had taken to return back to Kuwait  from India weeks before the world closed down its doors. At that time, I guess none of us had the slightest inkling that the world would go under lockdown.

One can only wonder as to when flying will return to pre-COVID levels again.

Wordless Wednesday: Cloudy Kuwait

Wordless Wednesday: Cloudy Kuwait

This pic is from the unprecedented rainy months last winter in Kuwait. It rained like there was no tomorrow.

While many rain records were broken, a lot of us who are used to 50 degree summers surely weren’t complaining as cool and cloudy days greeted us day in and day out. These were moments to cherish.
