Timezone Weirdness


GMT+3 timezone

I’m currently in Beirut, Lebanon. It’s a lovely city in every way – dynamic, energetic, mixed, people of all kinds, great food, great nightlife, beaches, mountains, you name it.

The timezone is weird, though. Lebanon is smack in the middle of the GMT+3 zone, but nonetheless it GMT+2 – same time as Athens or Helsinki. My flight here connected in Istanbul, Turkey. From Copenhagen I went +2 timezones, but then from Istanbul to here, I went -1, despite travelling each.
