A South African currently living and working in Qatar always striving to contribute towards the change where emails will be short, love letters brave and every thank you note be hand written! As I move through life, I want to share my experiences the interesting places I am so fortunate to visit, the amazing people I meet and the profound moments I am blessed with. I am wife and mother of 3 adult children; a Marketing Specialist by profession and a part time blogger. As I move through life, I want to share my experiences the interesting places I am so fortunate to visit, the amazing people I meet and the profound moments I am blessed with. When I am not working, you can find me watching Pretty Woman or Devdas for the 101st time, I watch obscene amounts of television without a trace of shame, surf the net, visit main stream or boutique hotels, restaurants and street food vendors, specialized coffee shops or the local karak drive through stores, High end stores to 5Riyal stores, Home Interior Stores or drive aimlessly looking for inspiration for my next post, the ultimate photo opportunity or simply write about what captures my imagination

American Teacher Overseas

last year

My blog chronicles my journey from living in the U.S.A to teaching overseas in Qatar. It highlights the steps to finding and acquiring a job overseas and guides you through the paperwork. It also gives helpful information about living and working in Qatar, the ups, the down, the good, the bad and the ugly. I also talk about my travels to different countries and enduring a long distance marriage. My blog is my thoughts and experiences!
