My family got some amazing news over the weekend, my dad has a new job in quite an exotic location. They're off to Rio de Janeiro!
I can't believe it just yet, and I can't wait for them to get their visas and head over there after the summer. It does however mean that our time in the Middle East is over. I knew it when I left at Christmas but didn't want to admit it at the time. I grew up in the Middle East, we moved over there when I was 5 and we've been there ever since so I guess I rather naively thought we would always stay there. But times change and new opportunities arise. I'm so thrilled for my dad and it's amazing to see how his hard work that he's been putting in for over 30 years is paying off for him.
I'm pretty sad that our Oman adventure is over but our Rio de Janeiro adventure is just around the corner! So in honour of some amazing 16 years of living in the Middle East I wanted to post some photos of my last amazing Oman trip.
I'm so privileged that my family's efforts means we can live in such a wonderful and beautiful country. Some people I know have never left Europe and I know I'm blessed and probably spoilt beyond belief. I knew this trip at Christmas was going to be our last, I tried to soak it all up. My life has come so far since my first ever camping trip in Oman when I was about 6. Life is unexpected and wonderful and you just have to grab it by the balls and enjoy every second of it because you never know what life will throw your way next.
Shukran Oman and vamos ao Brasil! (Goes off and listens to The Girl From Ipanema on repeat).
