The New Pad

We finally moved into our new apartment on August 9th, 2012. We had initially put a deposit down on another apartment but when we found out that it was being delayed until December the apartment hunt was on again. After days and nights of looking at apartments we finally decided on a 2 bedroom flat in the Al Kubeirah area near Dan’s work. We quickly bought a master bed, spare bed, tv, and set of couches to be delivered on our move in date. Our stuff from Canada was delivered one week later, making it feel much more like home. Last night we had our last few items delivered including the kitchen table, tv stand, and coffee tables. We love the new apartment including the gym, pool and awesome view of the beach and Palace. Now, we finally can say we are officially settled in Abu Dhabi and looking forward to some visitors!

About rrettenmier

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.

    Hey Dan & Bec. Glad you’ve finally got your place. I think the spare room will suit me fine for a month or two. Enjoy.
