    Also, on my work travel list for this year I have China proper (Shanghai), Denmark, Pakistan, Saudi and Sweden.

    I also realised that I lived in 7 countries: Bahrain, Cyprus, Qatar, Russia, Ukraine, UK & UAE. I studied in 5: Cyprus, Qatar, Ukraine, UK & USA. I worked in 4: Bahrain, Cyprus, Qatar & UAE.

    My favourite countries are Malta, Oman, Spain and Puerto Rico.

    I don't really know where I would like to go on holidays next, any suggestions? What are the places you visited that you really liked? I am not into skiing destinations, and generally not into winter sports, but everything else is game.

    So, where should I go next? ;-)

      Wow! That's incredible! I seriously envy you- I suggest you go to Syria and Turkey next (both great countries)
      For myself I've always dreamt of going to India and Mexico- very rich cultures from what I've read :)

      Hey Arabista, thanks for suggestions :) Mexico would probably be my choice out of the countries you recommended as I can still speak a little Spanish and I love all things Latin.

      You went to Israel ?
      I can not believe it !!! You are an enemy unless you explain the nature of your visit companied with necessary proofs.
      Till that moment, you are classified as an enemy !!
      PS: May I suggest Brasil (of course) Argentina & Maldives.

      Ponce, Puerto Rico is where my family is from and I am planning to revisit in 2010 for my grandmother's birthday. You have really travelled. Here is my list:

      1. Puerto Rico
      2. Mexico
      3. S. Korea
      4. Canada
      5. United Arab Emirates
      6. Oman

      Of course I am the enemy, did you just find out? LOL And hey, Maldives is for honeymooners :P

      Kuwait is not on your list, so that is where you should go next.

    • At 20/07/2008, 11:16, Blogger The Zoal said…

      You should visit Utah in the winter. Best snow on Earth.

      How about South Africa?

    • At 22/07/2008, 02:45, Anonymous MuslimahBloggerer said…

      I'd suggest Banff, Alberta. Google it :)

      That's an impressive list of countries. I've been to 10 and lived in 4 but I'd love to boast a similar list. It seems an amazing way to grow and challenge your person and beliefs.

      So you've studied in 5 countries? I'm not sure if you've addresssed this in your blog already (I'm a new reader!): what did you study and what sort of work do you do?

      You should consider doing career day for high school students:)

      Enough travel already.
      Stay home and vej.

      Don Veto,

      Do you think I should? Is it a nice place? All the Kuwaiti people I met are most pretentious individuals. But it would be interesting, yes.


      I spent 4 years of my life in the far north of Russia. I've seen snow :P Can't say I miss it much, but I will come visit you in the States.


      No I haven't been to Japan, and I don't think I will have a work related trip to Japan. And its just so far to go there on holidays!


      South Africa is on my to-go list, especially since Emirates has a direct flight now. I am a little bit concerned because everyone says its so dangerous, but I guess I'll brave it.


      Oooh pretty!

      As for my studies - my family moved around a lot while I was young, plus I got all my degrees from different colleges in different countries. I studied Law and International HR Management. I work in HR in a major European MNC, and I love my job.


      Yeah right, check my calendar!

      Add USSR. Nobody will find anything wrong :-D

      M-da... I would like to visit such a quantity of countries.

      Pakistan & Afghanistan are interesting for me also.

      Strange that you have not been to India :-)

      I think I must get a job which let me visit other countries as often as its possible :-D

      I envy you, Auntie! ;-)

      Hi qatar cat! I have a great place you really will like...Mauritius! Check out my blog for the details of the trip. It was very exotic and so much fun especially if you like the beach.

    • At 05/08/2008, 16:06, Blogger Taras said…

      Wow! You're a well-traveled person:)!

      Your travel experience must have certainly expanded your horizons and enriched your human capital.

      I'm glad Ukraine is on the list;)

      " All the Kuwaiti people I met are most pretentious people."

      Hullo Kat - You obviously haven't been to SoBo i.e. South Bombay yet, and therefore do no know what pretentious truly is.

      The Arrow And The Song


      I shot an arrow in the air,
      It fell to earth, I knew not where; ;

      For so swiftly it flew, the sight
      Could not follow it in its flight.


      I breathed a song into the air,
      It fell to earth, I knew not where;

      For who has sight so keen and strong,
      That it can follow the flight of song?


      Long, long afterward, in an oak

      I found the arrow still unbroke;

      And the song, from beginning to end, ,

      I found again in the heart of a friend. 。
