10 Things I love about Beirut

  • Brunch
  • Bars like Dany's where the walls are covered in grafitti, all the men have beards and basically everyone defines themself as an 'ism - (mainly socialism and communism)
  • 3 floors of El Dorado on sale
  • Being able to watch a film like "The Time That Remains" at a multiplex cinema
  • Brunch
  • Wifi access everywhere
  • Men with beautiful brown eyes
  • Florists who give you a free rose just for complimenting their arrangements
  • Lolly shops that sell fizzy cola bottles
  • Brunch!!


  1. Hi I as reading your blog and was wandering what kind of work do you do and what orignization. I use to be in the us navy and miss traveling the world. I miss it. thankyou tommy

  2. Hi Tommy. I have the very glamourous job of a Reporting Officer with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (for Palestine Refugees in the Near East), which means I write reports to the governments who donate money, explaining how we've spent that money on the reconstruction of a refugee camp that was destroyed by the Lebanese Army in 2007.

    I've always wanted to say this to an actual truckie, so Tommy, thanks for stopping by, and keep on truckin'!!
