Family Brunch in Arnaoon Village Lebanon

ARNAOON is a 300-plus year old Lebanese village that existed during the Ottoman days and its name stood strong throughout the years keeping its geography rising on a hill-top over the historic Msaylha Fortress along the Batroun Highway, North of Lebanon. The villagers back then decided to defend its glory and refused to give it away to the Ottomans. Team Arnaoon also decided to cherish this heritage by reviving the old houses’ ruins, beautifying the scattered landscapes and educating generations on respecting Mother Nature. From the moment we drove to the top, you could tell it’s going to be different with Fayrouz playing in the background.

Let’s just say one thing that probably will make you moms understand…Kids are perfectly well entertained right in front of your eyes while you are sipping your vino blanco. Enough said? That only means, happy mom and a happy wife to you husbands is a happy life!

Highly recommended for families with children. Children are pulling rope, jumping in a sack race, having a donkey ride or horse carriage promenade and even playing water games that got us even involved! You will definitely see grown ups enjoy the water fights way more than the kids! They also have a dance floor for kids to dance on with music just loud enough and fantastic service!

  • From road trips to sailing across the Balkans. There were definitely some days that were extremely challenging from driving long distances to sailing for days around Croatia, but I've had an incredible adventure, made new friends and memories. I'm posting an article tonight on everything you need to know if you are traveling to Montenegro for the first time tonight online. Thank you @flydubai for flying me to Tivat smoothly! Im now back in Beirut for a few days 🎶💃🏼!! Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you to all who messaged me and checked on me during my ⛵️🛵🚘.

  • Celebrate quitting the job that was killing your soul 🌊💕
  • Day 10: Sailing for two weeks across the Balkans/Dalmatia - I'm feeling so far away from everything... The scariest thing about distance... is that you don’t know whether they’ll miss you or forget you when you're gone.
It's bittersweet 💕
  • King's landing 🏰 (I couldn't find a better caption it was stuck in my head the whole time!!!) 😊
  • I worked out what would make me happy, and I worked out what I wanted to do, and I trained myself to do the job that would make those two things happen. 'You make it sound so simple.' He said
'It is simple,' she said. 'The thing is, it's also a lot of hard work. And people don't want to put in a lot of work. But I didn't get here simply by wishing for it.'
  • A fortified village dating back to the 15th century with stories and legends, the island of Sveti Stefan and the beautiful @amansvetistefan
  • The largest lake in Southern Europe. Skadar Lake, 70% in Montenegro, fully protected as National Park - 30%  being in Albania. There is so much history here to take in - Jelena, my guide is a walking encyclopedia!!
