Under Consideration

I love Prague. I really really do. But my bank account does not love Prague.

Really, what's not to love?
I'm currently considering moving to the UAE (either Dubai or Abu Dhabi) in January. I would make significantly more than I do now (or ever have actually) for about the same amount of work. I'd still be teaching. I'd still be teaching adults.

I'm all about pushing my comfort zone, but this would definitely be a totally different experience (but at the same time not considering 70% of Dubai's population is expats). It kind of freaks me out, but at the same time, I've got that shaky, giddy feeling all over again.

These cities are incomparable.

That and it would really make my Live-On-Every-Continent-Except-Antarctica-By-30 goal way more attainable.

I (sort of) have to make a decision by Monday if I want to lock in the position I'm being offered...

Thoughts? Suggestions? Anyone know anyone there? Anyone know anything about it?

  1. I'm sure you've made your decision by now and that it came from a mature place, but if not, I say go for it because it sounds exciting as all get-go.

  2. January is a perfect time to move - the weather will be great! I bet you'll find that it's an easier move in some ways than Prague was. Good luck from one Texas to another! :)

  3. Liz: You would tell me to just go for it! haha
    lyndasm: Thanks for the tip and the luck. I'm sure I'll be needing it.
