My name is Gina. I am an expat living in the United Arab Emirates and this is my blog. The UAE is a powerful little oil rich country next door to Saudi Arabia and across the gulf from Iran. It’s home to Dubai and Abu Dhabi — the most recognizable of the touristy destinations.
This blog began when I first moved to the UAE and joined the PTA at my son’s school. The PTA was a great way to meet friends and learn about my new life here in the UAE. Since then the PTA has expanded into a diverse group of friends and we spend our days, our nights and weekends exploring the UAE. Along with exploring with friends, I also have a huge mission. I believe The Abu Dhabi PTA can educate the world about the UAE through humor. It sounds a little KA-KA-CRAZY! So during my time here I am going to share my adventures, my experiences and my personal thoughts about life here in the UAE. This is not a scary place. A little crazy? Yes. Scary? No! Surprisingly, we expats have lots of fun. There are tons of interesting things to see, do, and explore here in the UAE.
So sign up to receive my postings via email and I will share all of our adventures.
Have something to share with me or a question about living in the Middle East you would like answered? Ask me regardless of how silly it is and I will try to provide an answer or I may just write a post on the subject.
