I have been waiting a really long time to write this post

I’m leaving Minneapolis. I got a job teaching English for a university in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

It's in the Middle East, smooshed between Saudi Arabia and Oman
Seriously, you guys. I'm moving to the land of sand and camels!

This will soon become an expat blog. I have rented out my house and the new tenants move in on July 1st, so I’m staring down the last two weeks of my life in the Twin Cities and trying to celebrate this transition in as many ways as possible.

Right now, as I prepare to put most of my worldly belongings into the hands of other people and I decide which books to bring with me, I feel like I’m buzzing.

This blog is going to get really interesting in the next few months, I think. I might have something to write about again!

  1. Talk about WOW. That is amazing. I can’t wait to read about your experiences! I have some musical inspiration for you. Go to Amazon and look up these two CDs. You will thank me later: “Sounds of Wonder” and “Pomegranates.” Best wishes, best of luck, safe journeys, and go get ’em!

  2. That is so very, very, extremely, hugely, fantabulously exciting! I can’t wait to read about your experiences. I hope you’ll take lots of photos, too. I want access to the minutiae of your new daily existence. I am fascinated by how people live in other parts of the world.

  3. I am interested in teaching English in the Middle East but am not sure where to start/what companies to go with. Would you mind emailing me so I can see who you went with/what options are available? The search seems a little overwhelming, and I’m not sure which direction to take. Thanks!
