A lifestyle and travel blog filled with the wittering, wanderings and photos of a British expat living abroad in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.


Bunch of weirdos…..must take after their father!

Mother of three, with two birds who flew the nest to attend university back home and have since flown back with their degrees completed and started and manage businesses in the region. Now the third, who went to school in Abu Dhabi, has too spread her wings to study Law at university in the UK. Follow my journey living in the desert through my words, sometime humour, honest reviews, photos and travel experiences. Hear all the latest news from Abu Dhabi, Dubai and beyond, the latest restaurant openings, where to spa, get the best deals, what to see and experience and where to stay.


The two (hairy) birds that flew the nest and have now returned to work inย the UAE.ย

All reviews are tried, tested and tasted by myself and usually the other half or another family member.
