Doha trip

Okay, so I’ve been literally PINING for a get-away weekend, to go on a holiday or vacation since I gave my thesis in June this year, and my wish finally came true. I went to Doha (Qatar) for 2 weeks, but my vacation was cut short because Dad has to go on a business trip and he called me home early.

I’ve travelled and seen many places (MANY) but it has always been with family. But this time around was my first ever solo trip, which by the way, wasn’t so much solo when I got there, because my mom’s sister lives there and she wouldn’t let me stay in a hotel.

Anyway. My trip was cut short to 10 days but I had loads of fun. I found Doha very peaceful, quiet and relaxing. The weather was pleasant, not very hot. and the people are great. And I am so glad that I had this opportunity, even though I wanted to stay a bit longer than I did. Tbh, I so needed this get-away after my torturous (six-months long) thesis for graduation from university. A much needed vacation, actually. But I’m so happy I could get away even if it was just for 10 days. 🙂

I’ll leave you with some pictures!

So, at Starbucks, I gave my name as Harry Potter. The server laughed when I told her. I’ve also used Voldemort, Jenna, Hermione, Bellatrix, Draco and Dobby.

I have four younger siblings and whenever we travel, I sacrifice the window-seat for them. However, this time, I had it all to myself. 🙂
