… to my blog!
What qualifies me to call the blog ‘Expat Steve’? Well, I’m a native Englishman, and have lived as an expat for some 10 years now. In that time I’ve been based in Saudi Arabia, The Netherlands, Australia, The Republic of Congo, Qatar, and now I share my time between Jeddah, in Saudi Arabia again, and Dubai, UAE. Oh, and yes, my name is Steve!
My career has been spent exclusively in the airline industry, where I work in roles linked to commercial and financial systems – it’s been an exciting and fulfilling career that has taken me to numourous countries across the globe from Australia to Zambia, and enabled me to meet and work with some amazing people from a vast range of cultures and backgrounds.
I share my life with my wonderful wife Melanie, who puts up with this lifestyle and almost never complains! I also have 2 grown up sons and a teenage step-son, who are a constant source of pride, and that I miss terribly.
Through the blog I plan to share a little of what we experience, both the good and bad, and would love to hear what others think of being an expat, whether you are a seasoned expat veteran, or maybe considering an overseas posting for the first time, perhaps you think that leaving your home country is the most daft idea imaginable! All views welcome 🙂
Thank you for visiting.
