Moving to Dubai, UAE

April 22, 2013

I am excited to be moving from Chicago to Dubai, UAE this Spring! This will be my first expat adventure! The emotional oscillation between exhilaration and abject fear makes me feel like a kid again. After 23 great years in Chicago I’m taking the opportunity to enjoy another growth spurt, learn a new language and culture, and check a box on my bucket list.

If anyone has experience in the middle east region, or can offer any advice on making the transition to life in a totally different culture, I would love to hear from you.

All the best to all, and look for photo updates in the future.
