I am a little tired of being 'told' that the UAE is not safe. The UAE is the safest place I have ever lived (besides Japan) and I am never worried about my safety. The situation in the United States of America is volatile. Even here in Canada there are times when my heart begins to race when I think I am being pulled over by police. I have never felt this is the UAE. Don't worry about us, we are really good. No really.

Just a super quick post. Congrats to all the next teachers that are heading to Abu Dhabi, I know some of you are heading out Aug. 6. I wish you all the best and if you have any question, put them in the comments and I will try and answer them or you can hit me up on Twitter @misshaneefa.
I have been enjoying my time in Montreal, went to see Kevin Hart last Friday part of his 'What Now' tour. He is hilarious!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

I know have been away for too long, but I am back and that is what really matters, right??
A huge thank you to everyone that reads the blog and emails me. I love giving advice and helping you in anyway that I can.
I wanted to recap year two and take a look back at my second year in the UAE.
I went to my first emirati wedding and was blown away at the gradure. I also started my Masters in Educational Technology.
My first trip to Africa! Spent my 8 hour layover in Nairobi, Kenya and got to experience an African Safari, I saw lions, zebras and antilopes on the open plane. This was a stop on my way to Zanzibar, the most beautiful beach I have ever seen.
My parents came to visit for two weeks, I also went to India for Christmas vacation.
All dressed up to head out to celebrate my friends birthday.
Attended Al Ain's first ever food truck festival, ate a camel slider and loved it.
I travelled to the Dead Sea in Jordan for Spring Break!
Went to Ajman (another of the seven emirates) with some of my girl friends.
Two of my friends from Canada came to visit.
As per usual a fantastic year!
