Trances pulling out of UAE and heading home

Well as you all know I have had my time in Dubai and have found it rather hard. So after 6 months decided that I cant adjust to life here and just to home sick. And that better opportunities will exist in other places for me in the future.. I have been looking for work in Sydney and hope to get a response over the next month or so. Once that happens I will make arrangements to end my contract here. So yes I know it will take a long time to move back but now that I have thought about it its just a release, given me hope and maybe saved me from being coming more bitter and upset.

Well let you know how it goes over the coming few weeks

we'll miss you man, your the key man in this forum. Well a lot of people feel home sick when they're away, especially in your case where australia is about 16 hours or so away. if you don't mind me asking, is it just that you are home sick that you found it hard, or is it somethin in general?

Home sick for my friends and lifestyle I guess thats what it is mostly
Though i could focus on my work for now but far to immature for that need every thing eles that was my life. So easy way to fix that would be to recreate it here. Not possible. Return when I can and capture it on holidays, not possible as cant afford it. Leaving the choice to return !

I have done my work here on this forum and many other fine people are working on it Now. SO i need a new assignment. What forum needs a few 100 threads ? And just cause i am not here does not mean I wont check in.

oh man!!!

sometimes it's crazy how people think about dubai. i can understand that you feel home sick, maybe your family is down under?

i myself can say that i would prefer to live in dubai than in germany. but i didn't have any job experience yet. i'm sure that working in dubai is a bit different from this tourist view (wow, everything so amazing, luxurious hotels,....).

for sure: we'll miss your engagement and work for this forum, because you won't be able to get insider info and these amazing pics anymore when you're home!

i hope you will continue as our uae forum moderator, won't you?

For sure, coming to Dubai as a visitor is much more fun. I think I love it here because of family and because I am not working. If I didn't have either of these my hair would go white.

Thanks for organising this forum, Trances.

There is not alot more i can say that hasn`t already been said. We will all miss you but at the end of the day you must do what your heart feels. Good luck.

Just out of curiosity how long have you been here?
I have been here 9 years and I hated it the 1st year. It was only after I found out there were in fact some normal people here that I started tosettle in. Now I love It.

TRANCES,

Is certainly one of the greatest cities on Earth, but please look back to my 1st post.

Sydney, Toronto, New York, Chicago are the great cities of the World. But they are already fully established, set in thier ways.

Dubai is new, and it's exploding with growth and unparalled projects. Ride the bandwagon, the growth be a part of the excitment. Develope yourself with it. You cannot go wrong.

Don't make a decision based on career, it's not like Dubai, is lacking in job growth. Dubai's job market is as feverish as it's building boom. You are in IT, there's a huge demand for it.

I'm sure if you more aggressivley build a network of contacts and focus a major portion of your time aggressivley looking into a better carrer you will find it.

And in Dubai, I'm sure once you find that career, and make big money. Like anywhere else with lots of money you'll have a much better life.

Besides, you cannot leave Dubai, before I move there, we need to o out for a beer
