​Talk to us!

Use the form below to tell us what's going on. Upload a photo of you enjoying expat life. We'll post both of them below. Looking to meet other expats? Tell us the details and we'll post that as well. Got a favourite pub,  - you know what to do.

​We always think that the Expat communities in the Middle East would be 'tighter' than those in other locations, but is that true?  How is life for you?  Are you all work and no play?  Here's your page - tell us your story and lead us to the best places to see and gather. We'll grab our cameras and meet you there.
