06.17.2016   One month to go before our Europe holiday. Grandma Glasses is making her list, and I have to remind her to travel light. The Swedish Chef is making his list of cakes and sweets to buy, and which restaurants to go. The Writer is also making her list of photo themes for her gallery. And I will have to keep everyone updated on our travel.

We will start off from Kuwait to Dubai, then fly out to  Stockholm. One week in Stockholm, then we go to visit relatives in Malmo. From  Malmo we go to Hamburg for a short stopover before going to Halstatt for the weekend. From Halstatt we fly to Vienna for a couple of days, and then take the last stretch back to Dubai. Three weeks of travel and I am sure there will be many things to see and a memorable experience too.

While inflight I looked out the window. I expected to see desert , and was surprised to see mostly brown land every where and not any recognizable green patches. Looking closer, I then noticed trees and grass in some areas around buildings and even in the highways.

Twenty hours traveling across timezones and we finally arrived in Kuwait. I found myself in a giant maze of signages & arrows while at the airport. And the wave of people coming in all directions also gave me a bit of a headache. It takes a while for me to get my bearings stable.
