    Visiting Kuwait: Everything You Need to Know

    The Middle East is becoming a hot tourist destination. It’s actually my favorite region in the entire world. New attractions are popping up left and right and locals are becoming more welcoming towards tourists. When people travel to the Middle East, they generally flock to the UAE, Jordan, Morocco or Turkey. However, there’s another hidden gem in this part of the world – Kuwait. I’ll admit that I didn’t exactly volunteer to go to Kuwait right away. We were in Dubai and needed to reset our visas.

    Why I Only Travel with Carry-On Luggage
