6 Hours in Qatar

We’ve got six hours in Qatar waiting for our onward flight to Hong Kong. With lots of confusion over whether or not we need visas to go into the city plus temperatures over 104 F (40 C), we decided to stay in the airport transit lounge food court, sip root beer floats, and people watch.

Experiencing the Local Culture

Goodbye Deutschland

This is it – our last day in Germany. We’ve been staying at Thomas’ parents’ house for the last week. Sepp, Thomas’ stepfather is a real Bavarian as you can see from the picture of his stein collection. Thomas’ family fattened us up for the trip. I’m really going to miss the weisswurst and Franziskaner weissbier (veal sausage and my favorite kind of beer.)

Real Bavaria

We even spent our last moments in the country at the Airbrau, the beer garden in the Munich airport. Only in Bavaria would people see you off at 11 AM with beer and pretzels.
