Doha Qatar The desert is and always will be a special place for me. Refuge for some, the enemy for others. Most of us westerners find its harsh conditions a challenge but I feel it has been undersold. With the right approach it can be rewarding, exciting and like nowhere else on earth. Welcome to
Doha Qatar The A388 800 plane I took to Qatar carries an amazing 517 people. In economy I had plenty of room so that the six-hour journey literally flew by. With only a twenty-minute shuttle to The Four Seasons Hotel I was ensconced in my luxury room quicker than a drive to the West Country.
