Making my move.

Well, Saturday is the day of my move to Bahrain. The house is a mess, the wife is a bit worried and I still have a ton of preparation to do. Things are moving along quite a bit quicker than I thought. As soon as I arrive in Bahrain, I need to find a place to live. I have lodging provided for the first month. I already have a car for the first month.

To add to the excitement/worries, I just received an email that I will be flying to Turkey in October to attend an executive leadership seminar hosted by Florida State. I'll be spending four days in the seminar and then on the last day we will be taken on a tour of Instanbul, before flying back to Bahrain. Now I have to find out Turkish visa requirements for a US citizen flying there from Bahrain.

FWIW, I was in Turkey back in 2002, no Visa was required then.

Have a safe trip and we'll see you soon. Don't forget to post pics.

How you found us: search engine
If I'm not mistaken the daughter of one of the guys I works with lives there. She moved there with her husband on a job transfer two years ago and they signed up for another two years there. The gas is cheap, people pump it for you, and I hear the recyling plan is great. They just drive down the roads and through the crap out of the windows. It took them awhile to get used to things but they kinda like it now. Mostly because her husbands company pays for the house/utilities/maid/and monthly allowance on top of his pay check. So they are just kickin back banking all the money till they move back home.
