Qatar Trip November 2014: Travel Diaries 
 

Hi Divas

I am so sorry that I was M.I.A once again on the blog. I spent a week in Doha, Qatar working there and didn't get a chance to do any kind of blogging activities. It was quite a last minute trip that was organised by my work, so I had very little time to prepare. Nevertheless I made it to the Middle East in one piece and had an awesome time in the short space I was there. I thought I would share some of my travel photos with you. I was working most of the time, rehearsing and performing, but I managed to sneak in some fun things to do. The weather this time was really nice. I could walk outside without feeling like the sun was going to scorch me. It even rained a little bit which was very welcoming. Hope you enjoy my photos.



I took the two above pictures on my way to work. It was 7:00 in the morning and the stores and restaurants won't open yet in the souq. As you can see the old Middle Eastern architecture are really beautiful and ornate. The two photos below are of the stage we performed on and me and my coworkers fooling around taking selfies ;-)




We had dinner at my Qatari bosses house. His mother cooked a whole sheep for us as you can see in the bottom left photo below. We all sat on the floor and ate the food with our hands in a traditional Arabic dinner setting. I really enjoyed the meal. The spicy fragrant rice was the best! They served us the most delicious Arabic tea which had saffron in it. It was so good I kept wanting more tea. I inserted a random picture of my shopping haul because besides eating up a storm, I did some shopping at my most loved mall in Doha called Villaggio. I stocked up on all my favourite brands that you do not find in South Africa like, Starbucks, Too Faced, Sephora and Bath and Body Works.




One of our last nights in Doha we went on a beautiful boat ride that took us around the city. The buildings in Doha at night light up like Christmas trees. It is really spectacular to see. Some of the buildings constantly change colour to make it look like fireworks. Doha is really beautiful at night. The boat ride was so much fun. We ended up singing and dancing on the boat too;-) In the photo below on the right are very cute Qatari children waving their flags waiting for the Qatari soccer team to drive pass. They had won a match earlier in the day and they all lined up to welcome the soccer team home. They were too adorable!





On my flight back to South Africa I had a window seat and snapped some photos of the plane flying over Africa on the top left. The other two photos are of the plane flying over Cape Town. The last photo I put on Instagram before my trip of some of my travel essentials. 



 *****
This is the third time that I have been to Qatar and I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately there was no time to go to the desert but I enjoyed shopping at the souq, eating delicious Middle Eastern Cuisine, the Doha night life and of cause shopping again at the mall ;-)


Thanks for reading Divas
Much love. Xxxx
