After five years I am moving back to the UK from Qatar.

Things I will miss most are the people and the food. I have made some life long friends and got a real taste for Middle East cuisine. Having said that within minutes of me landing in the UK I will be having a bacon sandwich and have ordered black pudding from a local butcher for when I get back to my home town.

I learned to drive across deserts and will return in a few years just to see if they will ever finish building Doha.

I have a hard drive full of memories that I will cherish and share.

I will not miss the mind numbing bureaucracy of every day life for an expat here or the dust that pervades everything. The heat of a summer here is an experience everyone should have once.

I will be offline for a while and have a few interviews lined up in mainland Europe so if everything goes well I will be posting pictures with greenery soon enough.

See you on the other side.
Good luck!

I was an ex-pat for five years. It's a bittersweet experience to move back home.
