One More Week

AlaskaOriginal Post: August 24, 2014

One week…. Yep, I leave for Doha in just one week. I’m not sure that it’s hit me yet. Perhaps it won’t hit me until I actually go to the airport and have to hug Jaden before getting on the plane. Hug Jaden…that will be a tough one. Continue reading One More Week

What I’ll Miss About the Pacific Northwest

WaterfallOriginal Post August 11, 2014

T-20 days and I’m off to Qatar.

Last night I had friends over to celebrate my career move and wish me well. We had a great time and I’m glad I took the opportunity to celebrate in that way. As we gathered, it made me really think about some of the things that I will miss about home. So this week’s blog is about the things I’ll miss most about the Pacific NW.  Continue reading What I’ll Miss About the Pacific Northwest

Have I started packing yet? This is undoubtedly one of the most frequently asked questions I get when people hear about my move to Doha. Well, the answer is: No!

Beautiful Maldives – Anantara Veli Resort

2014-12-10 07.19.24Original Post: December 14, 2014

Before I moved to Doha, my world was so small. I knew that taking a job in the Arabian Gulf would allow new opportunities and I am so grateful for the opportunities. Regarding Maldives, I was actually exploring a new resort in Qatar called Banana Island. I searched online to see when it would open and discovered the @Anantara_Hotels brand. When I looked at Maldives, I immediately fell in love and actually booked the room on the spot (my spontaneity is returning). I’d anxiously anticipated this trip for weeks and I am not disappointed.
