Before we get acquainted, can we all agree that “About Me” pages are the worst to write? I’m kind of shy like that. It’s an introvert thing. INFJ for life.

Who: A twenty something (a lady never reveals her true age) expat, exploring new places with my patient and sweet husband

Where: Currently Dubai, UAE Perth, Western Australia by way of Dubai by way of Charlotte, NC, USA

What: My ramblings and inner dialogue (hopefully with some pictures along the way!) of our little life here in the UAE Australia (or wherever life takes us)

Why: I hope to document the experience of living abroad and beyond for myself, my friends, my family and anyone else who happens to stumble upon this little blog. Mostly, I have a pretty bad memory – I feel like I need/want to remember this one day 😉

Our little family

  1. Hi Abby,

    Great blog! Really like it!

    As part of my HR studies, I’m currently conducting research into expats and expat partners and their experiences abroad via a questionnaire and I was wondering if you’d be interested in filling one in as your profile is extremely rich. If so, drop me an email at rhystyler@hotmail.com and I can explain the project to you in detail.



  2. Hi Abby. Love your blog. How did you find the move to Dubai? Getting jobs and accommodation etc? My partner and I are seriously considering moving abroad for a year or two.

  3. Hey Abby!
    I’m glad to see you’re enjoying Dubai. Looking forward to more adventures!

  4. Hello, do you have any email that I can contact you at? 🙂

  5. Hi Abby, first time here and love your blog 🙂 Nice to connect.

  6. Hey there, Abby. I already did a little, not-the-scary kind type of stalking and found your email. I’ll be dropping you a mail. Advanced thanks. 🙂

  7. Hello Abby how are you?
    Really like the blog and your impressions about Perth, there are so many info already despite the fact you recently moved in!
    I have been considering relocating from Dubai with my husband however as you might know Dubai really spoils us!!
    When you have a spare time would you mind to make a post or write me an e-mail comparing these two cities? Quality of life, cost of living and etc?
    Thank you!! 🙂

    • Thanks so much for reading, and your kind comment – made my day! Dubai (and Perth, too for that matter!) both tend to spoil us expats, but I think a post comparing the two is a fab idea – thanks for the suggestion – consider it done! And feel free to email me with any questions: abby.s.blanton@gmail.com
