Around the world part 7 – layover in Doha Qatar

We had some last minute flight changes that meant one less day in London and an 18 hour layover at Hammed airport in Doha Qatar. At first I was pleasantly impressed to see that Qatar airways and Doha tourism have teamed up to offer tours into the city for layover passengers without having to worry about the tourist Visa. Unfortunately we got there and were told that even though we flew Qatar Airways we booked through British Airways so we did not qualify for the tour. So points to tourism Doha/Qatar for setting up the tour to bring some of the layover dollars out of the airport into the city but disappointing that it isn’t a little more inclusive.

View of Doha from the airport.
Plan B – We explored the airport shops and art and then we hung out in the airport lounge (free with my credit card membership) and showered/freshened up for our trip to London.


Airport lounge snacks.

Some of the cool art we found… Large stuffed bunny was surreal and I love the metal men. They are very similar to my tattoo and also functioned as kids play area parks.

 Next stop London/England countryside.

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
