Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would be moving to a foreign country to live, let alone a country in the Middle East. Over the 2009 Christmas and New Year’s holidays, my husband Roger and I discussed what we wanted the next part of our life to be like. He thought that before retiring, he would like to do one more airport project but only if he could find something very interesting. I half-jokingly agreed that would be fine but could he try for an exotic location? As usual, Roger came through and soon we were headed to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. This blog is a recap of our "leap-of- faith" wanderings around the Middle East and beyond. We joyfully share these expat experiences.

Boomer Blog Carnival #275: Articles for us over forty gals

Boomers are on the move. 

This week we offer travel suggestions for Labor Day, a tale of "Bollywood" and great sweets from surprising places. 

For those concerned about turning old we ask the questions: What are the unique concerns of Americans 50-64?"; When are we old?; and lastly but very interesting . . . Has life hit you over the head with a frying pan? Be sure to read the answers . . .  and say "Hi!" to the Baby Boomer Bloggers.

On The Survive and Thrive Boomer Guide, Rita R. Robison, consumer journalist,
wrote about the top 10 places to travel for Labor Day. New York, Chicago, Boston,
San Francisco, and Seattle are among the cities that have consistently made it on
Robison’s best places to travel for Labor Day lists in recent years.

What could be more fun that a Bollywood Dinner Theatre in Dubai? Nothing!
Arabian Tales Katie Foster has another tale to tell.
Bollywood Dinner Theatre …Only in Dubai!

Recently, the Accidental Locavore found some great sweets in surprising places.
Where were they and more importantly, what were they?

The Midlife Crisis Queen, Laura Lee says: “After spending an hour or so recently
convincing my 83-year old Dad that things are different for our generation, I
 decided to gather more facts about the unique concerns of Americans age 50-64.

Last weekend Tom Sightings went to visit some some relatives in Pennsylvania,
and ended up in a family discussion about whether or not people wanted to go to
the Independent Living facility to have dinner with grandma and all the old people.
The whole  topic made him squeamish, but then, he wondered, wouldn’t he be
counted among the elderly himself? The whole issue got him wondering,
When Are We Old?

Oh! And if you haven’t already done so, have a read of my article Has life hit 
you over the head with a frying pan? I would love to hear your thoughts on how
life just keeps upping the ante until we finally get it.
