Bahrainby Jane Twain on 01/07/16
I like change. It can come in small things like a different music (sometimes classical, some other times mind & spirit, others romantic), candles with a variety of smells and texture, to massage oils and outfits. I like to make things interesting, not only for myself but also for others. I treat each meeting special and make sure it is different from the rest. After all each of us is an individual person. Our small pleasures and fantasies define us.
One of the things that keeps me on the constant edge of excitement is traveling. I like to have a feeling of being in the different places. I have been a keen traveller from the early age and still, despite years of it I am keen to explore new places or even return to those I have been before. It is this feeling of newness that gets me going. A passion to view life from a perspective of a different culture, tradition and religion. It is this what makes it interesting, exotic, real.
My travel took me to many places. Recently though I keep in the close proximity of the gulf. Flights are short, and yet still I get a taste of newness I so much long for. A taste of adventure at the small cost, a desire satisfied. Persian gulf has number of cities to explore. Whether it is Doha, Kuwait, Dubai or Muscat, despite close distance between them each of the places has a specific taste to it. I not only stay in different locations, but people I meet are different too. It not only keeps me stimulated but also it is a good material for my future memoir.
A resent addition to my travels is Bahrain. I have been planning to return to this part of the gulf for a few months already hesitating if this was a good idea. After all my experiences from 2011 was not the best. I visited it twice during that year, but the political situation of this place at that time made confused. On the latest visit I was taken by mistake as a journalist by immigration officers who thought I was planning to spy on their country. It took me long time to pass though the border, with my passport checked numerous of times as if my intentions were something I should hide. My only reason for visit then was sex, which was innocent though and would not pose threat to national security. I was glad to be finally allowed in, but the whole situation made me scared not to return again, for a long time.
Keeping busy helps you in many things, one of them is staying out of the places which potentially would consider you trouble. This is what I did for many years. I did not have a desire to return to Bahrain, in fact I did not even think about it. Then all of the sudden, at the end of 2015, I started to nurse this idea of travelling there again. I was not sure if it would be good, but nevertheless it settled at the back of my mind surfacing from time to time, letting me know of its existence. SHOULD I GO? I kept thinking every time I received a message from someone interested to meet me there. I did not like this feeling of confusion, so I waited for the right opportunity to come. It showed itself in its simplest and most predictable form, a new years eve. Spending the last week of December in Kuwait was fine, but on this special night I needed to be somewhere different. During my years in the gulf, I have already experienced a new years in a number of cities, Dubai Abu Dhabi and even Doha. I needed something exciting, unusual, but at the same nearby. I did not feel like taking a long flight to Europe, with its weather too cold for my liking or fly to one of the cities in the Far East for this special night. After having received a number of invitations from Bahrain, I decided that the choice was clear. On December 29th, I arrived, finally glad to be able to do so. To my surprise, the airport was exactly the same I remembered from
2011. Very few things changed, or maybe none. I am not so sure. This time I was welcomed with open arms as if I was a local returning back home. The only difference was a staggering fee of 25 dinar entry fee, the highest I paid so far in the gulf. OH WELL, MAKING MONEY, I thought to myself when passing though. In the end it did not matter. I was here and my new years wish was to come true.
Each city in the gulf has it's own special charm. Bahrain also and this is what makes it fun. My original plan was to be here though new years eve. Due to the number of inquiries I received and interesting people I kept on meeting I decided to extend my initial stay. A new place is always refreshing like a cold breeze on the hot summer evening. A bit of change is good for all of us, whether it is in places we go to, jobs we do or people we have sex with. Some variety is good for you, and this is why I try to make each session special. I like details, even the smallest one matter to arouse our senses, awake our desires, making us lose ourselves in the moment. Pleasure is to abandon control, forget every day life. Besides always working or attending duties, take a moment to pamper yourself once in a while, express your emotions, be alive.
