The Corniche is not just the most popular running route in the country; it has also been one of the most ideal spots for families in Qatar for many years now. The beautiful view of the sea and the lush green grass attracts many young and old visitors alike.
Families especially visit Corniche on the weekends as an ideal picnic spot and bring along their lunch or evening snacks, together with camping chairs and board or card games. Whether it’s for a few hours or an overnight stay, quality time spent with near and dear ones at an outdoor setting provides ideal opportunity to relax and discuss issues that you perhaps find difficult to disclose in the setting of a house.
When you have a household where everyone is busy doing their own thing, it can be difficult to find time where everyone disconnects from their responsibilities to focus solely on one thing: listen intently to what members of your family are going through. And what better way to do it than stepping out of the confines of your house! Add on to that the fact that a picnic on a sunny day also aids in vitamin D and calcium absorption, which is something many people in Qatar need!
We can go on and on about the benefits of picnics, but perhaps the best is that it’s what you need for maintaining healhty relationships with some of the most important people in your life. — Text by Azmat Haroon @azmatharoon,
