I moved from the Gulf of Mexico to the “Arabian” Gulf in November of 2010 with my husband and 2 sons. We then had a baby girl, our official Dubaian (rhymes with Hawaiian) in the family. (never mind – she’s definitely a Texan regardless of where she was born. 🙂 ) I am originally from Houston and lived there most of my life, with a few stints in Austin. My husband and I enjoy traveling, and usually spend our vacations in Europe visiting family in Spain, Italy or the UK.
My blog focuses on travel, culture and photography because those things have interested me for as long as I can remember. I also have a freakish obsession with documenting things, so one of the main reasons I started the blog was to share stories with my children when they are older.
We were excited when we were offered this opportunity to live in a different part of the world, even though it was difficult to leave friends and family behind. So far it has been an enlightening and interesting experience, but that’s not to say we aren’t homesick at times. My heart is definitely still in Texas.
