Year and year the expo’s stay with the same concept, designs, and promotions. Last year I visited Kuwait Tourism Exhibition 2012, although this year I intellect myself to visit the Tourism Exhibition 2013. As accustomed nothing really exciting or new. I had a quick tour to around the hall and saw organizations giving up brochures or chatting together. At the end before leaving, I saw Kuwait Airways Flight Simulator, so I had time to discover the simulator available guided by one of the employees.
What a beautiful city, here is another time lapse of Dubai in 28 hours. Dubai is getting more advanced day to day with tourism, entertainment, economy, businesses and more. I most thing I found in Dubai is getting more expensive every visit I go to and that probably reflect more to the economy and taxes.
Virgin Atlantic launches World’s first glass floor aircraft. When I heard about this project I thought it would be not real. But after I saw and read Virgin’s Blog, I agreed that this a true news. The first flight will operate this month April 2013.
Today we’ve announced that our world-class engineering crew have been secretly working on the design and production of the world’s first-ever glass-bottomed plane, created to ensure passengers can enjoy both an unparalleled flying experience, as well as a selection of stunning landscapes from the comfort of their seats.
The new aircraft will offer every passenger the chance of a bird’s eye view with an extra special opportunity to look down on the beautiful scenery of Great Britain as they fly.
The project has been personally funded by Richard Branson and overseen by Virgin Atlantic’s own Innovation team, who have been hard at work on this top secret project for several years. Richard set himself a personal goal to change the face of flying forever when he started Virgin Atlantic Airways in 1984 and this is one of many in the long line of aviation breakthroughs.
The service will be open for bookings shortly and if it proves popular there are plans to explore options for adding a glass-bottomed plane on routes to long-haul travel destinations too.
The aircraft will look identical to the standard Airbus A320 that is currently being used on Little Red’s domestic routes, but will have a clear strip made from aviation-standard glass in place of the traditional aisle. This ensures the aisle in the plane’s underbelly is completely see through, allowing passengers to look down directly as the plane makes its journey through the sky.
Cabin crew will also be specially trained to assist with any fliers who may be nervous travelling on the innovative aircraft. As an alternative, those anxious fliers are urged to book onto the two other daily flights from Heathrow to Aberdeen running as part of Little Red’s scheduled timetable.
Update: I think it’s an April Fool :p

During the recent trip Break To London, I visited Harrods for some shopping and check out the lastast offers. I went to the second floor to get some Harrods gifts products and on the way out I saw a new section added by Harrods recently named as In-Q (Means In-Qatar). In-Q includes Qatar traditional and culture products gifts items and some traditional info.
In the other section my eye catches at new cafe called “The Arabian Cafe”, decorated on traditional Arabian theme and items.
The Arabian Cafe menu includes Arabian Coffee and Arabian Sweets like dates. In life I haven’t tasted same this Arabian Coffee, it made as a royal coffee and each customer has his own full (Dallah) with a coffee cup. The (Dallah) is full with coffee and it can be refilled time to time. It just cost £7.50 include £2.00 service charge, so in total £9.50 (around 4.500KD).
It is worth to pay and drink an amazing royal Arabian Coffee in Harrods. If you are going to London, don’t forget me and visit Harrods. More information visit Harrods Website.
After a lovely quick week Break To London, today I’m back to home, work, blogging and the normal routine. The trip was good, but it’s really cold in London specially in the morning and night time. It rained and snowed before two days ago, but its really hard to walk during the morning time and most of the my transportation was through London Undergrounds and Buses.
At that time, London streets and airports are mostly quite and thanks god the shopping sales was still going on. In regard to my medical annual follow-ups everything seems perfect and completely fine and really thanks god for a healthy condition.
It’s break time for me. I’m leaving Kuwait to London for a quick short break and medical annual check-up for a post medical operation. Q8Path will be pause for five days only from now. I will be coming back with new posts about my trip to London.
You can follow us also at Instagram @q8path to know the latest updates.
Thank you all and see you back soon!
A full documentary film created about the millionaire racing cars in London. Gulf Youth spends their summers and mid breaks to London with their sports cars only for showing off. Citizens in London are complaining about the noise in the streets specially in the area next to Knightsbridge.
The full film explains everything. Youth can spend their money in other things if they want, but they think its correct to do then just enjoy and respect the country you are in.
Google Maps is back for the iPhones users. Recently Google released the latest version of Google Maps app to the AppStore which is available for all iPhone and iPad devices. Through testing the app yesterday, it looks much different than the older version. If you are an Android user, it probably looks the same with additional graphics, UI Design and motions.
From the recent trip to Dubai. I founded many new attractive and entertainment places for tourist to visit. Well due to the time capacity of my stay, I’ve just visited the main locations in Dubai. Such as the Dubai Mall, Emirates Mall and Jumeriah. I planned to have a tour in Burj Khalifa, but it was fully booked during the weekend.
The most wonderful thing to do in Dubai is visiting the Downtown, Atlantis, Safari and etc. Here are some of the photos that I’ve captured during the trip.
From last weekend when I’ve visited The Dubai Mall during my stay in Dubai for Gitex. The Dubai Mall published a new straegy for their visitors/guests to the mall. From 18 October – 02 November 2012, the mall opens 24hrs on Thursday and Friday; during the normal days opens from 10am – 3pm. This because of celebrating the upcoming Eid AlAdha and getting prepared for Eid.
Last Friday, I sat at Dubai Mall till 2pm next to Dubai Fountain. As I passed by, I saw the mall staff night shift changed by wearing the night shift uniform which as you see above. Their staff uniform includes Pajamas and Eye cover.
Well, I really loved the idea and strategy which The Dubai Mall made that impressed everyone.
