See you soon Dubai…

The day is finally here.  This is my last post from Dubai.  After an arduously long wait, I received my passport with the long-term visa just yesterday and this week of packing and saying goodbye is finally coming to an end.  I have just a few hours to go before I am on my way to a new life in Paris…

Despite having no work stress, it’s been a lot of late nights, early mornings and plenty of emotional farewell’s.  Yesterday I was surprised with one of the sweetest most thoughtful gestures from one of my favorite girls in the world.   Thank-you pooh x.  I will miss my Dubai girls like crazy but also look forward to welcoming them in my new city.   I leave with many memories and many keepsakes that will adorn my new apartment (and me!) very soon.  I can’t wait to land in Paris and to enjoy a completely relaxing weekend before I begin my new job on Monday.  The hardest part remains for Friday morning.  Saying goodbye to my family.  The last time I did that was 8 years ago when i left home to chase my MBA dreams in NYC…here we go again…. one thing I’ve realized is that no matter how old you are, to your parents you are always a child and it is that (sometimes suffocating) affection, protectiveness and unconditional love that I will miss the most because ultimately, family  is what matters most.

Then again, this is not really goodbye because I know I will be back here soon.  After all, Dubai is the city that gave me life and always welcomes me home no matter how far away I’ve been…

“Never say goodbye because saying goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting”
