Well, Shucks, Y'all!

This week, I had the honour of being featured on Internations.org , a really cool website for people who live and work abroad.  I am so chuffed!

 Trying to depict some of the many contrasts of being a Canadian woman working in the Middle East ... savoury and sweet, black and white, the iconic Canadian little rebel (Anne of Green Gables) and the Ideal Muslimah.

Internations is a great place to interact with like-minded expats, particularly when you're new in town and not quite sure where to start.  Local forums include Q&A, jobs and marketplace sections that allow new arrivals to find out more about their host country; likewise, they allow seasoned veterans to share their lessons learned. 

I was first contacted by their friendly team last January for an interview to be featured in their 'Recommended Expat Blogs' section.  But what with death in the family, multiple long-haul flights to Canada, a bout of grieving/depression, work, vacation and life in general, I never got around to completing their interview.  Since this summer has brought with it some renewed enthusiasm about my expat life, it felt like the time might be right to share a bit about me and my blog.

So click here if you'd like to read a bit more about the gypsy behind the blog ...

And let me say thanks to the team at Internations for their interest and to all of you who've dropped by and/or followed me over the last year and a half.  It means a lot!
