Default Abu Dhabi here we come!

Well almost.

I have my final meeting/interview next week and am flying out to Abu Dhabi for it.

Hopefully it is just a formality, and if all goes well I could be on the ground and in place by July. It really is a dream opportunity so I hope I get it.

I have also been shortlisted for a job in Dubai, but I'm not so keen on that one.

So if it all comes off I will have loads of questions, in particular about diving. Would also like an opinion on the best 4x4 to get as I will need one for my job.

Ta,

I was leaning towards getting a Prado.

Just got off the phone from a telephone job interview in Dubai, i's nice to feel wanted.

So hopefully I will have a fall back if the AD job doesn't come off.

Fast cars with Attitude are superb

Performence does matters, but looks are very important. You have to see my Jeep

I think Abu Dhabi will be great, the potential there is massive. Will have the Grand Prix circuit in two years as well which is a bonus.


Just worried that I may have to marry my girlfriend in order to get her over there, unless of course I can find someone else to sponsor her.
