I have been waiting to make a trip post for weeks but I was unsure how to do it, so I’ve decided to break it up into sections. The first part – food and animal friends!
In March, Matthew and I were traveled on a journey across the world to Doha, Qatar. While there we would be teaching a GIF, VIDEO, ANIMATION, EVERYTHING COOL workshop to students at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar. The trip was amazing and so much more. We were in Doha for almost 2 weeks so got to see alot which means I have a ton of pictures to share. Instead of making one looooooong post, I’m going to break it up into sections which will be more concentrated.
The flight to Doha was about 13 hours and thankfully nonstop. We flew with Qatar Airways which had a night flight which worked nice to sleep on. On the flight there and back our row of 3 only had 2 (us!) so I was able to take up to 2 seats, eat some decent airplane food and catch up on nearly the entire season of Downton Abbey.
Our flight landed at around 7PM their time so we got to the hotel around 9PM. I’ll share more about the hotel (Al Bidda in Souq Waqif) in another post, but it was just straight out pimp. On checking in they served us watermelon juice and had us sit down. Already I was in love.
Because we were starving we headed to the hotel’s restaurant La Piazza which specialized in Italian cuisine and had for our first meal…. pizza. I wasn’t expecting my first meal in the Middle East to be pizza but I can’t complain because it was good.
Hope you enjoyed Part 1 of our Qatar adventure!
