Travel Theme: Bountiful

Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack hosts a weekly travel theme.  This week’s theme is “Bountiful.”

When I think of “bountiful,” I think of my travel experiences in Arab countries.  Arabs are amazingly generous with their hospitality.  If you have the good fortune to be invited to their home, you will be overwhelmed with the bounty of the food and gracious hospitality they offer you.  (Unfortunately, I have yet to lose the weight I gained travelling in Arab countries.  Sigh.)

The pictures below come from Palestine, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, and Kuwait.  I hope you have the opportunity to partake of such bountiful hospitality some day!
