Have you ever visited a mosque? It can be kind of intimidating, especially for women, if you’ve never been in one before. So that’s why I decided to write up a quick guide of do’s and don’t’s so you won’t have to miss out on this cultural and spiritual experience on your travels!
It’s true, I set out solo to Doha, Qatar! It’s also true that I stayed with family friends who are from there. But after visiting, I can definitely recommend Qatar as a destination for solo female travelers.
My time in Qatar was full of adventures—Arabian nights, learning to haggle, eating pigeon, riding the sand dunes, and even swimming in the Arabian Gulf at sunrise! With so much fun and so many exciting excursions, this post is all about the adventures!
It was a unique experience because it’s one thing to travel to a new place, something else to travel to a new place solo, and yet another to actually live with locals. I got to learn so many customs and details that I never would have learned on my own or even if I’d been traveling with someone else. And I’m letting you in on all those things, too!
The Middle East is hot. It just is. The sun is relentless during the summer days, so people often sleep late, enjoy museums and shopping in air conditioned buildings during the day, and do much of their living at night!
Is Qatar on your “to go” list? I recently had a unique opportunity to visit some family friends there this summer, and I learned so much! So I came up with this great list of things to know before you go!
I had a pretty unique experience there because I stayed with a Qatari family. They were so gracious and made sure I got to experience only the very best of their country, and I’m here to share the top 10 things to do on your own trip to Qatar!
If you’ve been following along on Facebook and Instagram, you know I just got home from an epic trip to Doha, Qatar. I got a lot of shocked and quizzical looks when I started telling people I planned to visit Qatar (and in summer, no less!), so I was inspired to write a post exclusively about Qatar–a little history, a little clarification, a little geography.
