26: Estonia to Qatar Night Trip (Reflection of 18 Months)

August 16, 2018
We cannot believe how fast the last 18 months have gone on the road. In this episode, we reflect back on the journey and detail all of the places we have visited so far. The path has been fantastic. We then talk through the last week of traveling which took us to the beautiful city of Tallinn, Estonia for 5 days to enjoy the thriving technology hub of Europe. We enjoyed walking around the walled town and meeting other travelers. Then we discuss our flights from Tallinn to Copenhagen, Denmark to Doha, Qatar to Tokyo, Japan. We made the most of our visit to Qatar scheduling a night tour of the city which was amazing. Main Topics Covered: Overview - Reflection of the last 18 Months Traveling Tallinn, Estonia to Copenhagen to Doha, Qatar to Japan Links Mentioned in the Episode: Tommy John Underwear - Matt brought seven pairs of underwear on his journey - ALL Tommy John  Seven Corners Insurance - The Travel Insurance that we use as we Travel Full time  Find all of the updates from the last 18 months at the Our Journey So Far tab We just wrapped up our TrustedHouseSitters obligation and flew to Estonia We used a free walking tour in Tallinn to hear the deep history of the city and see the sites  We met some great travelers and locals using the Meetup app to find events to connect  We planned our long layovers in Copenhagen and Qatar in order to have a more relaxed travel experience. Be sure to be nice to all airline personnel because it will often pay off. I got emergency exit rows on both long flights for free. My buddy in Copenhagen told me to go to the ‘Top Shawarma spot in the world’ so I did. He was right, it was delicious.  We cannot stress enough how amazing the lounge access is with Priority Pass. We showered, ate meals, and had space while enjoying the lounges in the cities we flew through.  We scheduled a quick 4-hour night tour in Doha, Qatar during our layover and it was well worth it. The tour company did a wonderful job making sure we enjoyed the time in the city.  Make sure you understand what to pack. Pack Less!
