We’re moving to Dubai. We expect to be there by the end of October. Any homeschoolers living in the U.A.E. please do get in touch on this blog, or by email, and let’s get together!
I am really going to miss the wonderful, small group of homeschoolers in Bahrain that I’ve been so privileged to have met, but unfortunately, only so recently.
I’m going to desperately miss the wonderful friends I have in Bahrain, some whom I’ve known since the beginning of the four years that we’ve been here. Bahrain has been my daughter’s whole life. We moved here from the UK when she was just 6 weeks old! And I’m going to miss the house where she’s grown up, the old villa with the beautiful lush garden, possibly the lushest in the whole of Bahrain.
I just hope they’ll come and visit us in Dubai!
But I’m looking forward to hopefully being near some lovely public parks and beaches that we don’t have here. I’m really looking forward to living close to some dear old friends again, one of whom I’ve known since University days and who I moved to Dubai with back in 1997! Moving to Dubai the first time was the craziest and best adventure of my life (other than getting married and having kids!) I don’ t think it will be quite so crazy this time but possibly more hectic given the size Dubai is now compared to the first time I lived there! And the size of Dubai compared to, comparatively, sleepy Bahrain. But I won’t miss the tear gas, burning tyres or traffic jams as a result of both of those. I will miss the interesting political landscape here though.
I’ll be blogging about homeschooling in the midst of a move soon. Hopefully, there may be some useful tips in there somewhere for you!
