So back in 2012 when I still worked in SE-Asia I made it a habit to fly back to Europe twice a year. Most of the time via Doha in Qatar – that would cut the otherwise excruciatingly long flight precisely in half. Besides, Qatar Airways with its home base in Doha is a phenomenal airline with the newest planes that they maintain to the highest standards. Service onboard is way better than most airlines I had flown with and so is their customer service. The list goes on.
Shame on me: I have never made it out of the airport. And I must have been there half a dozen times. The pull to Europe was just always too strong.
Nevertheless I wanted to share a few great pictures I took from the plane: Mostly the periphery of the city, refinery, desert, the sea and the airport.
