From Surrey to Minneapolis to Dubai: Circles in the Sand

I write under the pseudonym Dubaiunveiled, because when we moved to the Middle East in 2008 I realised there are lots of misconceptions about this region of the world (“Will you have to wear a veil?” was one of the questions I was asked before moving). I’m originally from Surrey in the UK, but we relocated to the UAE from Minneapolis in the US.
1. Why did you move abroad?
My husband, a pilot, is responsible for all our moves! He’s American (I’m British), so I eloped with him to Florida five days after marrying. We spent about five years in the US, before moving to Dubai so he could fly bigger airplanes. We like to keep things interesting – and sunshine.
