Mainland China, Doha Review

Recently we went to lunch at Mainland China after seeing so many good reviews on Twitter. So did it live up to the hype?

Firstly I have to say that when we entered we were taken aback by the lovely and very tasteful decor. It was much Slicker than I had expected.  I even quite liked the glass dragon light and waterfall feature at the reception.

But the main reason I was there was for the food. I LOVE Chinese food, in particularly I love British style Chinese food which is completely different in my opinion to American Chinese which seems to be the main offering in Doha outside of hotels so I had been keen to try somewhere new!

We started with some assorted appetisers. Prawn dim sum, crab wontons and duck rolls which were all outstandingly good. I would say the best dim sum outside of hakkasan in Doha.

How travel has changed now we have a baby! The first six months 

Everybody said that travel would change and in the worst cases stop as soon as we had a baby! We were very prepared for the change but were never going to stop. So how has travel changed in now we have an almost six month old?

The truth is …

In many ways it hasn’t! It has actual surprised us how little it has changed. So what are the ways it has and hasn’t changed.

The destinations

We have been on several international trips with Baby E mainly to the UK! This is probably the biggest change we have had. As we are expats in Qatar, we have had to bring baby E back to meet family and friends and to hold her christening! Normally we wouldn’t do this many trips to the Uk so close together as we really love exploring new places. However this isn’t a permenant change. Over the next six months we have plans to go on adventures to Italy, France , Spain and the Seychelles so normal adventure service will resume soon.

Kyambura Gorge Chimp Trekking Part 2 –

Our two chimp trekking experiences in Uganda could not have been more different. The first experience at Kibale National Forest was more up close and personal encounter with the Beta asserting his dominance and naturally interacting with humans. Our second experience at Kyambura Gorge was a far more distant experience but in many ways a more natural  in my opinion. Continue reading Kyambura Gorge Chimp Trekking Part 2 –
