Holidays in Qatar - Part One


We are finally home after the best holidays in a long, long time. We still can't believe we were there just a few days ago and it makes us weep a little that we had to come back. We miss the hot weather (it was just perfect, hot, but not too hot), we miss the food, walking barefoot on grass, going to souq in the evening and spending our mornings by the pool. We miss absolutely everything. We are so grateful to my brother Andrew and Ela for having us and putting up with us for so long :) 

Here is part one of the massive photo overload that's coming, hope you enjoy it. 



Doha beach, surprisingly empty.


This lady had the time of her life in doha, more on that in a whole new post.


My eyeballs literally hurt when we left the flat for the first time in the morning (we arrived at night time). Hats and sunglasses were a must.


E.T not go home yet, it was very windy at times and we didn't want her to catch a cold.


Obligatory visit to one of the many, many shopping centers in Doha


Isn't this marvellous, Venice in Doha :)


My big girl, looking up to her cousin Stella all the time


First visit to souq. It was amazing. We've been to souq in Marrakesh before but it was totally different, old, crowded and a bit smelly. 


We decided not to take Lara's pram with us. The wrap was more than enough. 





Dinner at a turkish restaurant, our taste buds went crazy. 


Ela, testing the wrap.



They both seemed to love it at first...wrap


So many beautiful things



Traditional bread baking oven


And the most delicious flatbread, hot from the oven.


Doha downtown at dusk


An elevator selfie of the six of us. We miss you guys!



No desription needed. 



Pigeon house in Katara cultural village. 




A golden Minaret.

The cutest and pretiest little bird Stella 


Picnic





That's it for now. We are really excited to share these photos with you. We are so thrilled that we got to go on such amazing holidays. More random photos from Doha coming soon.

Valentine's Day

It will sound super cheesy but we try to make everyday feel like valentine’s, we don’t go crazy with the celebrations, there’s no candelight dinner and expensive gifts. This time it was our first Valentine’s as a party of three (or four since we couldn’t leave Ginger behind). We spent half a day just wandering around Kazimierz (the jewish part of the city). The weather was gorgeous so it was just perfect.


                        We met our dear friends Magda and Wojtek with their cutest baby girl Matylda and Rudi who really hoped to be Ginger’s Valentine only she pretended not to care at all…typical woman.


                                        Happy Valentine’s to you all!
