So, you are new(ish) to Dubai or possibly planning to relocate to Dubai in the near future? We are happy that you have found our blog, Expat Echo Dubai. Hopefully, you will find it a helpful resource during your settling in process into this unique city.
First of all, let me start by the obvious. Dubai is unlike any other city in the world. It’s very likely that you will be relocating here from some place very, very different. Do not fear. Don’t let the glitz, glam or size scare you. (more…)
The first step can be to ‘declutter‘. Walk around the house and look at what you’ve got and think about what you will really need in your new home. At weekends (or even the up coming half-term holiday) get the kids to get under those dusty beds and pull out the boxes with a million bits of transformers, cars and lego and ask them ‘do they really still play with these toys?’ Go out to the garden and have a look at the old garden furniture and ask yourself is it worth transporting all that back – especially if you are moving back to a cold country. Begin the task of going through the paperwork and shredding what you will never need again such as DEWA bills dating back 5 years ago etc. Read more

We are all worth the same amount in our humanity. The sameness project facilitates moments of sameness through online & offline social initiatives.
Following on from the success of the August initiative, The Sameness Project is looking for volunteers to join them for a morning of hot, sweaty and heartfelt fun where volunteers hand out bottles of cool water and a ton of thank you’s and handshakes to anyone working in Dubai’s heat, keeping our city built, clean and beautiful.
This is it! The last one for 2014 and we’re going all out! We were so overwhelmed with the turnout of over 500 people in August. So we’ve changed the location to accommodate such big numbers. PepsiCo have doubled the water to 10,000 bottles and Hertz have come on board to offer free cars and drivers to anyone that doesn’t have a vehicle!
Bigger Than Ever & Last of 2014! Make it count!
