Al-Fateh Grand Mosque, Bahrain (2016)



Despite its large size (some 6500 square meters, able to fit 7000+ worshipers), there aren't nearly as many visitors are other famous mosques. So when I walked in with my wife, we were greeted by a staff member who gave a personal tour and talked about his faith. Usually when traveling or touring I don't like to be bothered, but it was all just very interesting.

Layover in Oslo (2016)



All three times I've been in Oslo it was always for a half day (one night) layover. I've always loved the city, but its a shame I never really explored it. This was my most recent visit, arriving in the afternoon and flying out first thing in the morning.
