I started a quick wordpress.com blog to give my friends and family back home the US a look at my life and adventures since I moved to the UAE in July 2010. Posts will be about life here, settling in, random thoughts, pictures, news and whatever else I can think of offhand. Basically my goal is instead of emailing friends and family the same thing over and over, I can just direct you all to this blog. Call it helpful and interesting or laziness on my part…you decide.
And I can’t take credit for the name of the blog. The lovely and talented Katie Favazza suggested it because of the UAE’s lack of formal mailing addresses. The name stuck, and after securing the domain name it was done. Plus I’ve enjoyed the small irony of giving people the website address “withoutanaddress.com.” In short, if you need help naming a blog, you should enlist Katie’s services.
Of course, this is a work in progress. My top priority is finding a job and doing the variety of other things we need to get started here in the UAE (resident visas, finding an apartment, buying a car, etc.), but I’ll do my best.
