Freedom from KSA!

When you are from Saudi Arabia the first thing that you came to your mind about Bahrain is FREEDOM! Free country close to where we are live now (Al-Kobar) get a chance to experience the life of being a Christian whenever we want, get unwind, watch movie and so on and so forth.

We visited bahrain frequently, and surely that we still be back here for more as our favorite destination. Bahrain is like our home It has a lot to offer esp for Christian people and glad that there is a free country near KSA where we express our freedom in many ways.

    You did the right thing in getting a price first, but you should have insisted on only paid what was agreed. There have been lots of comments about them, including many complaints from residents. A very interesting travel log, many thanks.
