Our story is fairly simple. We are Americans who moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates in August of 2008. For three years we were fortunate enough to live in the older part of the city – Deira – which we loved. Summer of 2011 we moved to Fujairah, a smaller city on the East Coast surrounded by beautiful mountains and quickly disappearing archeological sites. In August of 2014, we moved on to Shanghai, China.

We are enjoying the wonders of seeing things differently and learning to cope with Globish (the international version of English). We are not the type to lay on the beach or frequent night clubs. We are much more interested in real life.

On vacations we have travelled to:

  • Heidelberg & Koln, Germany
  • London, England
  • Hay on Wey, Wales
  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • Istanbul, Turkey
  • Athens, Greece
  • Singapore
  • Jordan
  • Kiev, Ukraine
  • Prague, Czech Republic
