Being the type of traveller that I am, I’ve been spending the last few weeks reading and researching everything that I can find on the subject of taking a trip to Kuwait.
Typically, how I’ve planned a trip before is that I first decide where I want to go and then i decide how long I want to be there for. On this trip i am going to see someone I know, so that is what decided the where for me. Timing wise, it became clear that a week would be about what I could afford, so that made that pretty easy.
If I am planning a visit to a place solely for the purpose of going to that place I might ask myself when it’s best to be there and make a point of centering my trip on that.
From there I went to the usual places to gather information. Google, wiki travel and lonely planet are pretty good sources in my opinion. Trip advisor is pretty good for some info as well.
So far, I have managed to pick up a lonely planet book on tourism in Kuwait as well, but that is the only book on the subject I have found so far. Oddly enough, 90% of the things to do there are museums or shopping. It kind of makes sense, but I know there is adventure in Kuwait somewhere! I just have yet to find it.
I’m hoping to find some kind of info on the jet ski or ATV rentals that I’ve heard about, but there is little floating around about it on the net.
It looks like, if I want to explore the countryside I’ll have to rent a car… Which is kind of sketchy in my opinion, though I did have good luck with that on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. It just feels like its going to be a case of “I’ll have to see what happens when I get there!”
Sometimes that works, sometimes not so good.
