To the desert…

So, tomorrow I leave for Riyadh – a new life as an expat, in a country that is virtually impossible to visit otherwise. Naturally I am somewhat apprehensive, but excited in equal measure.

I will be leaving my wife and son behind in the UK for about three months, which is going to be a challenge for a family that’s close, but the toughest bit right now is that I will miss my son’s birthday next week. Hopefully the next few months will pass quickly.

Still, our new life in Arabia promises to be truly life-changing. I’m looking forward to when we’re reunited in our new home.
