We’re here!

11 Nov

After a very long break in Cape Town, Luka and I have finally joined Olaf at our new destination. The good news is that the name of my blog remains appropriate even though we are now in a different country. If you are a regular reader you may recognise this place…

It’s the city of Doha, in Qatar, and it’s our new home.  We are not that far from our previous home, Saudi Arabia. In fact, Saudi is the only border that Qatar has as it is a peninsular surrounded almost entirely by sea.

We lived here for 2 years before so it’s not completely new to us but it has changed and is in a continual state of upgrading. Plus this time we are here with a kiddo which makes life a little different. 

All the details of settling will be shared as they happen.

      Thanks TC. We’re not quite as cool or glam as the Carter-Wilsons in Vietnam but we are excited about new adventures in the new Land of Sand.
      Kisses back at ya x

      I don’t know myself with internet access again, it’s pretty darn amazing. I have to hold myself back!
      You have NO idea how well the gifts from the girls for Luka went down on the plane. The 3 little cars (that are supposed to be keyrings) were played with all the way to Abu Dhabi while Sir Luka watched the Cars movies. Thanks again and love to you all. x

      Hi Mom
