My day as a Tourist in Kuwait

Kuwait Towers

Fishing Pier Kuwait Sharq

It’s a long Eid holiday, so I thought of doing some touristy kind of stuff today.

  • I had a traditional Kuwait breakfast in Mubarakiya.
  • Went to the fishing pier on Gulf Rd.
  • And walked over to Kuwait Towers.

Formula one in Kuwait

 Formula one Kuwait  Formula one Kuwait 2

I don’t usually post about Red Bull events but this one is a super awesome one, so I’m making an easy exception.

  • Tomorrow, there’ll be a real Formula one car racing and doing donuts and burnouts on Kuwaiti streets.
  • The Gulf Road stretch opposite Kuwait Towers will be closed off for the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 car.
  • The event starts at 2 p.m. and the gates open at 12.30, so try to get there early to grab a great view spot.

It’s not every day you get to see a Formula One car, not to mention a World Championship car. Come witness power and speed like never before when the Infiniti Red Bull Racing F1 car will take to the streets of Kuwait on Friday March 28th at 2pm. The Quadruple Constructors’ Championship winning car will be driven by Red Bull Junior Driver Carlos Sainz Jr. who will perform a full repertoire of donuts, burnouts and speed runs in front of an expected 25,000 racing fans who will line the streets next to the Kuwait Towers on the Gulf road

So just open the video and hit “Play All”, and connect your phone or laptop to speakers. Just like that, you’ll have 30 great sings back to back nonstop.
