Hi there. Brand New to BE. Left London for Australia 14 years ago and now negotiating over a move to Oman with a view to moving around Sept/Oct. My other half is Korean and we do not yet have kids.

Have absolutely no idea about life in ME however have read through many threads and the overwhelming sentiment seems to be that Oman/Muscat is a lovely place to live.

I have a million questions, however I shall search through the threads to see if they have been covered already.

Cheers

For the last 3 years I've split my time between muscat and the uk but shortly going to be moving to Qatar
Oman is indeed a great place to be and have loved our time here.
Now that our children are independent I'm going to stay with my husband in Doha and hopefully get a job as a midwife

Thanks for the note, we don't have kids yet but hoping it won't be too long, feeling very excited about the move although the heat does worry me a little!! I think moving during winter might be a smart move

Hello All,
I'm new to the site but and old Abu Dhabi expat. I've been here since 2004 with family (wife and two children).

My children are now back in the UK at boarding school, so just my wife and me.

We are in the process of trying to downsize from a villa to something smaller and perhaps move nearer town (MBZ at the moment).

I am currently out of work and if things don't work out I'll have to up sticks to wherever else.

I'm enjoying looking at old and recent posts for advice.
