Re: Iran - You leaving or staying?

RAK's the wrong direction though - I think Al Ain or Liwa is probably a better idea. Though Liwa is surrounded by oil and gas fields.

Re: Anyone Taken their TV back to the UK?

My TV's already set to the UK region but that just changes what apps are available. The voice control is a hardware feature of the remote, and the remote that ships in the UAE doesn't have the...

Re: Anyone Taken their TV back to the UK?

I can confirm this issue - my UAE-bought Samsung TV has many of the features disabled* that the exact same model shipped with when sold in the UK and US.

* Voice control and wireless pairing...

Don't forget to mark yourself safe on Facebook: saves those back home from worrying. They don't know what we're going through!

Weather alerts

I think I just saw a leaf blow past my window, and I got some water on my shoe on the walk to work. I, for one, am glad they closed all schools today.

Re: DLSR's

Honestly (and I own a Canon EOS 60d DSLR), I'd go for a mirror-less these days. DSLRs are so bulky in the days of smartphones that, unless you are 100% dedicated, you'll find it a hassle to use and...

Re: Nanny visa

Re: Investment Platforms for expats

Yes, I agree the commissions are't great. But I can't be bothered with the giant ball ache of proving my address in order to open an account with another broker.

Re: Who's the next PM

Re: France and UAE driving licence

I've not had any, neither in France nor Italy. These days rental companies even seem happy just to use the digital version (AD Police App) rather than the physical card.

Re: Problem with Dollar Rent a Car UAE

If he thought there was a 20 kph buffer then he would have been driving at up to 180kph. Which is quite scary.
