Your wandering sandy soul will rejoice as you read this book.

And you knew you had lived in the Middle East too long when...

Going Home

... you thought that going home was just an expensive holiday.

The Heat

... you needed a sweater when it was 300 celsius.


... your idea of housework was leaving a list for the maid.


... Friday meant brunch at the Ritz.


... you thought it was ok to park anywhere as along as your hazards were on.


... was the interval between the time it took for the light to turn green and for the guy behind you to lean on his horn.

Don't let it bother you that hot water runs from the cold tap, that there are no rules of the road, that bottled water is cheaper here than at home. This is my world. This is the latest.

A Message from the Author

My name is Bonnie Morrice. I have lived the expat life for more than 15 years. It's a journey. I have found that life is not measured in the number of miles travelled but in the quality of friends along the way. I hope you enjoy reading the book as I enjoyed making it.
