Two years has passed since we landed in Dubai International Airport, carrying the maximum baggage allowance for two adults and one child. I tell you, traveling with a child, it was not much – we didn’t even have pillow cases or a hair dryer, even a bottle of shampoo! Just clothes and lots of diapers. We had three one way tickets, a desktop PC we can’t leave behind (crazy I know) that took most of that baggage allowance and clothes and the determination that we can make it.
We fought a lot of battles right from day one. Our apartment building was not completed yet, my crazy work schedule, bureaucracies, my husband’s terrible language barrier, Pristine’s separation anxiety,the BUS. I could go on and on but, well, we are still here, after two years!
Pristine loves the beach so much and we are lucky to be living near it . She’s still small in the photo at 3 years old, taken 2 years ago at Jumeirah Beach.
Life in Dubai is not all roses, as everywhere is, but we like it. We are happier here and that’s what’s important.
