Conversations I Wish I Had

Beautiful article I greatly suggest for reading.

Quite Alone

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be in Qatar, on assignment for the British Airways inflight magazine High Life. It was for an idea I’d pitched to them, trying to give a bit of insider perspective to the way Doha is usually covered in the Western media – which tends to be either PR-driven guff about fancy hotels and multibillion-dollar developments, or hard-hitting exposes of the Qatari government’s truly appalling record on human rights.

Both have validity, but neither tells the whole story. I went for a people angle. Stories. Storytelling.

This was the result, with fantastic pictures by Andrew Shaylor. I had a brilliant time writing it – so much fun. I hope you like it, too.
