Big News

For those of you who haven’t heard the news through the grapevine yet, here it is. Dan has found a new job and surprisingly enough it is not in the United Kingdom! After we returned to London at the beginning of January, Dan started actively applying for jobs. There was good interest-a few calls from recruiters and for jobs in Denmark and Sunbury, UK. However, one Monday evening we were sitting on the couch watching tv in the flat and we received an email from a Canadian firm in regards to an opportunity in Albania. By Saturday night we were celebrating acceptance of the job offer at a friend’s place. The job is a one year contract to start on Monday February 7th so we decided to book a last minute vacation to Egypt to get some sun before work started. Check out our new Egypt page to hear about it and see some pics!

Plans have changed slightly from the start date of February 7th. Instead, the company wants Dan to come to Calgary for some initial training before transitioning to Albania. So low and behold, we are off to Calgary for 10 days on Wednesday, February 9th. Hope to see you all there! Stay tuned to hear more details about where we are relocating.

In September 2010, Dan and I received working visas for the United Kingdom. We sold our condo, quit our jobs and packed our bags to move to London. This blog (though a few months late) is designed to update our friends and family back home about where we are and what we are up to.
