I grew up traveling. My parents were restless people, and, well I’ve developed into a lover of all things foreign (even after they’ve developed into something known). I have always wanted to add an expat title to my life (but promised my children I’d wait until they were all out of high school). December 2013, I submitted an application to teach in Abu Dhabi. Before I knew it I was interviewing. August 2014 I started my new job in Al Ain, UAE. I originally created this blog to chat with myself (and any of you going along for the ride) about my new Abu Dhabi obsession, and now that I’m living here it’s a way for me to share my journey with everyone back home (and anyone else reading).
