My 2014 RTW trip

My annual trip to Australia and South Africa for business and a few other places.

Australia

Getting to Australia from Eastern Canada is never easy. I left home Sunday and landed in Sydney Tuesday morning 🙂 I had two connections in Detroit and LA and a painful 15-hour flight in economy to Sydney.

Lax-Syd

Almost there, only seven more hours to go

Malaysia

I returned to Sydney, dropped off my pink cruiser and flew to Singapore, stayed there overnight, ate a few spring rolls and boarded a bus to Kuala Lumpur. It’s the second time I made a mistake of taking a bus instead of train. The first time was a New Delhi to Agra bus, when it took over 8 hours to cover a 200 km distance! This time it wasn’t that bad, only 8.5 hours for 380 km instead of the promised 5.5 and the bus was a lot more comfortable.

After Malaysia I spent almost a week in Joburg for work but haven’t taken any photos!

 

Qatar

My flight back home was with Qatar Airways (one of the world’s greatest airlines, btw) with a two-day layover in Doha.

One of the numerous money transfer agencies in Doha, always crowded – too many foreign workers in the country

Public beach in Katara village – the only one I could find in the area, they charge ~$30 per person, probably the most expensive and the least attractive public beach I’ve seen so far
