This is by far my favourite blog! I always look forward to hearing what Ann Marie is up to, and her entertaining take on her experiences in Abu Dhabi. Not only does the author give great advice for those travelling or considering a move to the UAE, her travels over the past few years from her new home are exciting, and her humour always puts a smile on my face.

Ann Marie's blog is funny and insightful. I've seen none better from the UAE.

I LOVE this blog.. Informative, insightful, intelligent and wildly entertaining! Made me want to move to Abu Dhabi and guess what?! I did!

Excellent humourous and insightful views from a talented, experienced and observant ex-pat Canuck. This is rich and resonant. Highly recommended.

great (and consistently hilarious) blog snapshotting the little idiocies and oddities that ensure life in the UAE is never dull.

I think this blog is spot on and gives great authentic insight into what life is really like in the UAE. Having lived there myself, I look to this blog to remind me of the fun it was living there.

An insightful and often hilarious look at a Canadian reporter living in the UAE. You never know what Ann Marie will write about next, but you can be sure it will be interesting!

This blog is an excellent one.I am considering to move to the UAE and I have learnt lots of things about the country through this blog's good descriptions and entertaining style .You will also see some funny, interesting and cool pictures from AbuDhabi that you wont see unless you live there.

Ann Marie brings her exotic and exciting experiences in Abu Dhabi to life on her blog. I love to read her blog to see her spin on the things she experiences. Keep it up Annie!!!

I love this blog. I am a Canadian living in Canada and it is great to read about her experiences

I love the sense of humour and intuitive insight of this blog's writer. Living in Abu Dhabi myself, I think she gives a great idea of what it's like being here, both from the fun side and the more serious. Definitely a daily fix!

I so admire Ann Marie's guts for leaving the comforts of Canada and moving to a place like the UAE. As a person who would never have the nerve to do it herself, I live vicariously through her blog and continue to tell everyone I know to read it. Always a great read and laugh out loud funny at times. Keep it up!
