Day 20 - 21 Aqaba - Home

1825km covered in the past 48 hours, I just arrived into Kuwait at 16:00 local time. It was the most grueling part of this journey, as we had to cover over 924km on the first day through the barren desert of Saudi, where a cruel cold weather cut through our defenses, we arrived to Ar'ar again where our trip started, slept at 22:00, woke up at 5:00am and drove the toughest 901km back to Kuwait, I caught myself napping out of boredom on the bike. I needed to reach deep down inside to build the stamina to continue, as the combination of lack of sleep, cold and sore muscles were taking over. On the bright side and a welcomed break from the monotoneous roads in Saudi, we were escorted by the Saudi Highway patrol granting us safe passage across the kingdom at a blistering speed of 160km/h.
