As most of you know by know: we have said goodbye to our beloved Dubai! After three years in de desert, it was time for a change and when we received news of a new job in Antwerp, we decided to take it :) We’ve been here for about a month now and have been crazy busy finding a new house, getting all the official papers in order, buying new bikes (YES!)..etc etc!
I never thought I would ever say this, but Dubai, we miss you! We miss your blue skies, your tall buildings, your over the top extravaganza, your beach, your ‘biggest, tallest, highest’ attitude, our friends (!!), our home on the 42nd floor (ok not so much after the fire ;), the Jeep and the Mini, the amazing travel opportunities, the adventure…I mean: a weekend in Oman? Sure! A desert drive with the Jeep? Sure! A four hour flight to Sri Lanka? No problem!
I know I know: Antwerp has been amazing so far and I’m sure we’ll have an amazing time over here :). It’s great to be closer to our family and friends and there are many more advantages of moving to Europe…but this post is about you Dubai! I don’t know how you did it (seriously wasn’t into Dubai 2,5 years ago), but you’ve grown on me and I will truly truly miss you!
