This last weekend in London, I spent much of my time on or near the Thames River. Viewing London from the river gives you a different perspective of the city, especially at night. Many of these photos were taken on a river cruise from the Thames barrier to Westminster, but you can also enjoy walking along the Thames to enjoy the same views by walking on the Thames Path.
Florence is my favorite city in Italy. The whole city is a museum and as you all know I am a museum nut! I have been to Florence three times this year, so here are some of my favorite photos from my visits.
Dhow Boats are the traditional fishing boats in Qatar. While not much fishing is happening on them now, you can rent them to sail the harbour and go swimming. Usually, you cruise for about 30 minutes, swim for a while, then eat and slowly head back for a total time of four hours. Depending on who you go with, it can be a party boat and can get crazy! When the boats anchor for you to swim you have to watch out for all the guys on jet skis. Fortunately for me, I was on a non-party boat, and it was a relaxing day with friends and good food.
I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse into a fun Qatar tradition! If you are in Qatar and looking for a dhow boat cruise, I recommend the company we went with, which was Qatar International Adventures.
