About me and the blog

Why am i blogging?

It doesn’t matter if you want to stay in Dubai for one week or one year. With this blog I want to give you an insight into the Arabic world like I experienced it. And I hope you will not only enjoy the reading but also that it will help you to make a decision or even with the startup. I will build up this blog step by step and try to connect helpful information with my own experiences.

I have been living in Dubai for 3 years. Or better to say, I have been working in Dubai for 3 years. I was staying in Sharjah, the neighbor emirate. Living and working abroad changed my life a lot. This is also a reason why I am writing this blog. I want to bolster you up to go out in the world make experiences. Build memories. It is not always easy and it may come a time that you miss your home, your family and maybe your friends. But all this shouldn’t keep you from going out there. This is what makes life worth it!

Directly after I finished my vocational training in a workshop, I went to Dubai. There I worked in a workshop too, as a technician. I went there with two colleagues from Germany and our company arranged everything. So I had a quite easy start. But nobody takes the decision from you. Most people, at least in my environment, couldn’t or still can’t imagine working or living abroad. Away from family and friends. Depending on your circumstances it may not be easy to leave. But the things you learn and the experiences you will make are thing nobody can take away from you. So you crow through your experiences.

And if you’re already thinking about leaving, you may be looking for something. Some changes. A better place to be. I never regret that I went to Dubai. It was the best time of my life and I love each memory about it. I made a post for each important topic, so I hope you will find quickly the information you are looking for.

Some more facts about me. I lead my life in Dubai like at home. I was working 50 hours a week, 5 days. Morning and evening with additional 1 to 2 hours driving from and to home. If you have been in Dubai already you now what I am talking about. On weekends I went to one of the beautiful beaches, for shopping in one of the numerous malls or made a trip and viewed the U.A.E. To which beach I went most or which mall I liked best you will learn in the particular post.


If you have a question don’t hesitate to send me an email. I try to reply as soon as possible!

If you like this post or the blog I would be happy if you could share it to help others to find it. Thank you!
