Hi Pink Fish,

Welcome to BE, I hope you enjoy being part of our community.

I've removed the link in your post as we don't allow members to post links to sites they are affiliated with (even non-commercial ones) but once you've made a few posts and have been a member for 48 hours you will be able to put the link in your forum signature. You can find details of how to do that here.

If you haven't done so yet could you please also take a quick gander at our site rules. That way you will be familiar with what is, and is not allowed.

Thanks and the best of luck with you move.

Hello...welcome to BE.

What country are you moving to? I recommend you take a look at the Middle East Forums...the regulars who post in there will be able to give you info and tips about living in the ME. There is also an Introduction thread in the Sand Pit...why don't you pop over there and introduce yourself? It's also worthwhile to check out the BE Wiki.

If you find yourself a little lost navigating the many BE forums...we have a team of concierges who will direct you around the website. The concierge for the Middle East forums is Blue Cat...please contact her if you need any help.

If you have any problems or concerns please contact a moderator. The mods for the ME forums are Bob, NorthernLad and rowell.

Please shout out if you need any help...there's usually someone around 24/7 to help out.

Hello Pink Fish,

And welcome to BE. Why don't you tell us where you are from. And where in the middle east your going. The countries vary greatly one to another.

Regards,
Chris

Hi Chris,

I am moving to Qatar, and I am from the UK. Looking at all the forums on Qatar shows some mixed reviews! I guess I will have to take it all in my stride!

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Hi PinkFish and welcome welcome Whatever feelings you have about Qatar, one thing for sure, you'll be getting some fab weather very soon (if not already). The winters are lovely. Enjoy

Hi Pinkfish

I see you have been given the links to the Middle East forum, where they seem a very fun bunch of folks to chat with, so hopefully you will have some fun times there.
That just leaves me to say welcome to BE, Good luck with your move - oh and don't forget your suntan lotion because there is actually sunshine in Qatar which you probably haven't seen for a very long time here in the UK !
