Doha – Qatar

22/02/2017

It’s been a while since I last visited Qatar. A very good friend who spent time working in the Maldives moved to Qatar because of her job. You might ask yourself why would anyone move from a piece of paradise! Especially the Maldives! Sometimes there isn’t a choice but in her case, she simply had enough of island life, although her job there was stress-free. Imagine that!

My friend could not get another day off work to show me around which was disappointing for both of us. She suggested I go to The Pearl.

The Pearl is a relatively new man-made island with luxurious high-end boutiques, residential accommodation, hotels and luxury cars showrooms such as Maserati, Ferrari, and Rolls-Royce.

 

I strolled along the waterfront promenade and admired the beautiful yachts and boats. It’s so much nicer than walking inside a mall.  Guess I would think different during the summer months when the temperature rises!

I can’t recall how long I had been walking but I started feeling quite warm – or maybe I should say hot and a little peckish. I headed towards Paul’s and settled for a table inside where I could cool off. I knew what I wanted and placed my order straight away! Fresh orange juice and salmon quiche.

Soon after lunch, I was well on my way, wanting to see as much as possible before it got hotter.I’m sure I went into almost every boutique – if you know what I mean!

By chance, I saw a cute little shop selling bags and later found out it was Kwanpen boutique. All their bags are handmade and come with a hefty price tag,

It was time to head back to my friend’s apartment but stopped off at the Westin hotel for afternoon tea.

    So interesting… the streets look so empty. I’d love the menu, though!
