I have been an expat nearly all my life. I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland but my early years were spent on the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. As a family, we relocated back to the UK for a few years but the call of expat life was never too far away and we once again relocated this time to Hong Kong. I returned to Scotland to finish my education and attend University where I met my husband who had also been an expat child and after a few years of doing the 9 to 5 job in the UK we returned to Hong Kong, moved to the Philippines and then 15 years ago ended up in Dubai.

ask louiseQuestionI am a 16 year old boy currently living in Dubai. I attend K-12 International Academy as this is the most convenient school for me due to my lack of Arabic skills and late enrollment into this school year. The only problem is that K-12 International Academy operates from home. How would I go about making friends around my area (JBR) or elsewhere that are in the same age spectrum as me. Read more

ask louiseQuestionI work in Al Barsha 2. My wife and kids, 2 years and a newborn will be shifting in with me early next year. I am struggling to decide on settling down at Al Barsha, Tecom or JLT. My wife prefers JLT because the facade looks good, and due to the close proximity to the beaches. I on the other hand, prefer to get it in Al Barsha to be able to walk to office. I intend to get a car eventually,but am waiting for my emirates ID to do the conversion. I am keen to find a place that is nearby to the Metro and has Nurseries nearby for my eldest kid. My budget is 75K. Read more
