Big news for the Wandermust family

Some of you may have been wondering why we did a spur of the minute trip to the US to road trip the national parks. And while it was done on a bit of a whim there was also an underlying reason we wanted to hit the road again!

Our parents, family and friends have been told so it now feels right to share our news with our online community. So the big news is ….

The wandermust family is on the move again!

When we came back to London I think we knew in our heart of hearts it wasn’t our forever home. Don’t get me wrong when we were young and carefree we loved living in London and it is a great place to visit with kids – but it is not where we want to bring up our little one!

So when Wandermust daddy got the call we knew if he got the job we were going to take it. So a few interviews later and a mad few weeks of arranging shopping and packing we can say we are moving to …

Drumroll please …

Abu Dhabi!

It’s a strange move for many reasons! Firstly, it is my first time being a trailing spouse! When we moved to Qatar, it was for my job. So I feel like this time I am moving as a bit more of an expat cliche!

Secondly and probably most importantly, I’m moving to a city I’ve never been to! While I’ve been to the uae many times- Dubai and a desert resort I’ve never been to Abu Dhabi! I’ve obviously read up on it lots and I can’t wait to get to know a whole new city but it does feel strange!Though I should say that I’ll be still spending time in the UK so you don’t need to worry about my UK content disappearing!

I can’t wait to share more of our Abu Dhabi adventure with you and share what directions my blog will be going on but for now – the countdown is on as Wandermust daddy is heading out today and me and the toddler will follow in a few weeks!

So send us your tips for our big move To Abu Dhabi and expat life in general!
