Esmé by Jasper
We were supposed to be traveling to Canada at the end of this week but after a lot of thought (and tears) we decided to postpone our trip. Esmé's passport took longer than we expected and last minute tickets were astronomical and then I had a bit of a meltdown about traveling with both kids on such an ambitious trip. The flight journey home was one thing but the itinerary once we were there was strenuous, trying to see everyone and we are just so exhausted to begin with! So we decided to do a practice trip. We picked a destination that was a direct flight, no longer than 7 hours, reasonably priced and not currently an inferno. Croatia it is! So excited to go back but this time, we visit the North.

When we heard @tashascafe opened in #AbuDhabi, we bolted over to Al Bateen to try it out. Our first encounter was years ago in Johannesburg on our way back to Gabon after a week in Mauritius. The cafe was just down the street from our hotel. We went for breakfast our first morning and returned each day. It's just as lovely here.
Goodness. It was exactly one year ago today we left Norway. It was so bittersweet as we had such a wonderful 4 years there yet felt it was time to move on. I miss the fresh, crisp air, the delicious tap water, our long walks outside along the fjord, the quaintness of Sentrum, our friends, kanelboller, frequent European travels, and I even miss the rain a little. #expatlife
