Doha Life on a Mild Winter

As an expat living in Doha, Keith and I live a fairly low key lifestyle, we’ve been here for the last 8 years, and like anybody else it becomes a routine life; we are here to work, especially in summer.   But now it is ‘winter’ season in Doha, and it is a very mild winter,  as the temperature is really very nice, and more and more activities are held outdoors, simple activities just like fishing along the Doha Corniche early in the morning:

Gone fishing

Fishing in the city?

Mild winter

A picnic on the grass at the Corniche with a nice background

or a picnic on the grass nearly at the same location:

The authorities contribute by having an international speed boat event and claiming themselves as “The World Capital of Power boating”:

The carrier of the speed boats

Speed boat racing

The power boat race

Or down in the city, meet up with friends for a cup of coffee:

Friday morning meet

It is not normal to have so many big bikes in Doha

well, this is a weekend meet up before going cruising around town for the bikers:

Getting ready for a ride

Getting ready for a ride

Morning ride

And off we go for a morning ride around town if not around the country

As for us, I think we are happy to be a bystander and watch the action.

I used to live as an expat and travel around the Middle East. After 10 years working in the Arabian Gulf I am now retired and living in the UK but still retain my interests of further travels and exploring new horizons.


  1. Seeing the motorcyclists makes me wonder how the driving is there. Is it a bit safer than the UAE, where the local boys are all reckless drivers?

      I guess there are not much difference from the UAE, the only difference maybe there are not as many high way yet in Doha compare to Dubai….
