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.

Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
Woke up at 1am on my Bali Birthday to do the Batur Volcano hike. What a great day. Very steep incline that varied from road, to lava rock, to volcanic clay. We hiked up in the dark so we had no idea how steep some of the drops were until we hiked back down in the daylight! Mt. Batur is an active volcano about 1,770 metres above sea level. Our hike up took about 2 hours. Base camp is about midway up the mountain, so our gain was 900 metres, 13 km. View at the top is of Mt Agung, another active volcano. #mtbatur #volcano #hike #bali #mtagungbali #birthdayfun #thisis50
I’m back in Bali. After a little beach exploration in Kuta, we’re now settled in Ubud for a bit. Hit one of my favorites @clearcafeubud and now ready for morning yoga @theyogabarn followed by a sound healing session at @pyramidsofchi today. Best day ever. #bali #beachwalk #ubud #kuta #soundhealing Yes, those are recycled water bottles made into a Christmas tree.
