Greetings from Manama!

Hello,  arrived last night to a rather windy Bahrain with a bit of a chill in the air, but I have awoken this morning to bright sunshine so all is good.
The apartment is lovely and decided to do a little video blog last night which I will put in this post.
The suitcase filled with art supplies made it just under the weight restriction of 30kg, but unfortunately one bottle of yellow acrylic split and its all a bit of a mess in there! Luckily all my clothes went into hand luggage…phew..

I am going to go out and do a little bit of exploring today,  later I will be sending out all the invites to those of you registered on the online Timeworn workshop, there are still 32 days left to register before the workshop starts so go on and treat yourself lol.

Oh before I forget, if you like chili you really need this Banana Chili Sauce I brought last night in your life, honestly its amazing!

Right better get on so I will leave you with these photos of the rooftop terrace and its views of Manama along with the video.
Have a great day,


  1. Glad you arrived safe and sound Andy. The room looks pretty Comfy. Have a great Day. Looking forward to the next instalment.

    Hugs Fiona.oxoxoxo

  2. Lovely apartment and happy that you arrived safely....aside from the paint spill of course! (Note to self Andy...always put paints into plastic bags before packing!). The pool looks great so I hope you get chance to make good use of it. Good luck with the workshop, not that you need it. See you soon. Lindsay x

  3. Glad you made it safe! Banana chili sauce? I love hot sauce but dislike bananas with a passion. Does it have banana taste and smell to it? What a find, hee :) Have a fun workshop!

  4. A slight Banana taste but not too strong, it makes the sauce just a little bit sweet but not too much...I need to buy more to bring back!

  5. Looking fwd to hearing all about your trip... looks like a nice place you're staying in. Got my invite to the Timeworn Techniques course, thanks...

  6. Enjoy your stay Andy and don't forget to bring us all back a souvenir lol. We could always Alter the chilli sauce bottle!
