    Podcast: Kitesurfing Qatar

    The post Podcast: Kitesurfing Qatar appeared first on TD (Travel Daily Media) Travel Daily. Kitesurfing Qatar Featuring: Sarah Lord   When you consider the world’s most predictable kitesurfing spots, the Gulf state of Qatar probably wouldn’t be on most people’s minds. Well, Qatar’s predictable winds and wonderfully still water conditions do make for a kitesurfing paradise as professional kitesurfing coach Sarah Lord will attest.

With 563 kilometres of coastline, the fact that the country juts out into the gulf is the reason for the winds there…

    Podcast: A world of Malaysian Laksas

    The post Podcast: A world of Malaysian Laksas appeared first on TD (Travel Daily Media) Travel Daily. A world of Malaysian Laksas   I’ve been fortunate to travel to Malaysia often, and that country is one of my favourite destination. One of the things that I truly love about Malaysia is its food.  Usually, a flight from Perth lands in Kuala Lumpur at about 9 pm, and if I get the Airport Express train into KL Sentral Station for the 59 km journey (which is, by far, the quickest way to get there), I can be checked into my hotel and heading out for my first Roti Canai of the…
