“You have brains in your head, You have feet in your shoes, You can steer yourself any direction you choose” Dr Seuss
The scariest part of moving abroad is the decision to leap into the relative unknown and go for it. Once you step off that precipice, there is no going back – not, having taken that first step, that you’d ever want to. Having grown up as an expat, I knew that I wanted the same adventures and experiences for my own children, so when the opportunity for a move came our way, uprooting the family from South West London to Dubai, we teetered on the edge of the cliff, and leaped.
And we spread our wings, caught a thermal and soared.
As a third culture kid myself, I have always loved to travel, discovering new countries, cultures and cuisines, and now I am bringing up my children as expat adventurers. We are discovering the beautiful, big, wide world together, and they are teaching me just as much as I can show them.
My three passions in life are family, travel and writing; it’s time to bring them together. I am looking forward to sharing some of our travel and Dubai adventures in this blog, and will show you that you and your family, as Dr Suess said, really can go any direction you choose.
