Jalal is a Lebanese student who’s attempting to cycle about 3000km through eight countries in a period of two months. He started his journey from Regensburg in Germany a couple of weeks ago and has entered the fifth country Romania as of yesterday. He will be taking a ferry from Turkey to Tripoli in Lebanon due to the situation in Syria.
That’s a pretty fun ride! I hope he gets home safely. You can follow updates on his Facebook page [Here].
Another Lebanese called Gloria Nasr ran from Paris to Lebanon last year.
I spotted the video on Lebanese Memes but I can’t confirm that this was filmed in Lebanon. If anyone knows about this video, please report these crazy and reckless people!
This is the latest awareness campaign by KunHadi on the dangers of texting and driving.
I think hotels are a great way to get away from the monotony and routine of everyday life. The getaway helps you relax, meet new people and get to know new areas that you wouldn’t necessarily get the chance to visit. On several occasions over the past years, I’ve spent weekends at some of Lebanon’s nicest hotels such as Phoenicia, Four Seasons, Le Gray, Mzaar Intercontinental, Mir Amin Palace, Monte Cassino and others.
Over the coming months and as part of a “Discover Lebanon” segment I am working on, I will be posting detailed reviews of the rooms, service, facilities and the experience as a whole. In addition, I want to provide a glimpse into the surrounding regions, must see attractions, etc.
So make sure you look out for my reviews!

Balou3 Balaa, also known as the Baatara sinkhole or the Three Bridges Chasm is a natural sinkhole plunging 250 meters in the mountainside and featuring a 100 meter waterfall between the bridges. It is located in Tannourine. You can go hiking and camping next to the sinkhole and also visit the Tannourine Cedars Forest Nature Reserve.

The guys from Uf Chou Laziz challenged me and Gino to do the Ice Bucket Challenge.
I don’t know how these models are fighting Da3esh by wearing swimsuits and drinking rosé. I shaved this morning. Am I fighting Da3esh too?
Here’s the new trailer and the movie is set to be released this fall.
I am looking forward to this one!
If you ever go to Akkar, make sure to try out the Tlamé bread. I don’t know if it’s popular elsewhere in Lebanon, but I’ve never had any in the South where I am from, nor in Beirut or Keserwan. The Tlamé is basically a dough baked in an oven made of clay. It comes out a bit thicker than the usual Man2oushe dough and tastier. You can get the Tlamé bread without any fillings or get Tlamé Manakish. Make sure to eat it while it’s still fresh and hot though as it hardens real quickly.
One of the oldest and most popular Tlamé ovens in Akkar is the one found in Oudeen. It’s on a small mountain road facing the stunning Oudeen valley and has been there for over 20 years. While waiting for your order to finish, I recommend you walk outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
