Random Thought: A Little of Doha

They say you have to love what you have. Well, in my case, I have to love where I am.

Where I am right now may not be my first choice to experience being an expat. Admit it, most of us wants to be in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia or somewhere colder ( and poshier) than HOME. But hey, it ain’t bad here at all! Doha is not just all dessert, sand storm, camels ( I’d like to ride one soonest) and extreme weather. It may not be as open as Dubai but Doha still offers entertainment (places to go to and activities to do) that makes your stay worthwhile and helps kill homesickness. Its rich culture makes the place interesting. One just needs to know where to look. It may not be much for some but these places we have been to made us a happy expat.

Random thought : Living life as an expat

I’ve always wanted to work outside my native country to have a greener pasture. I know it’s a cliche but it’s the truth. Sadly, from where I came from, earning big means leaving your family and your life.

So now I am starting a new job in Doha. Things are not as bad as I thought. I found out that I can adjust easily to new people. Seems like I’m getting to know myself a little better. This and a lot other reason why so far I am loving my expat life.

But it’s not all good though. Homesickness creeps in from time to time. There’s culture differences that I need to deal and get used to. And adjust to this 40ish degree celsius climate that welcomes me every time I step out from our building door.

To all the expat out there, how did you adapt?
