To my brother with love

Just wanted to say that Fadi has been going through difficult times, between work and relationships, let's say life has been hard. Remember Fadi that you are surrounded by family and friends who love you and cherish you. Be brave and hang on to the roller coaster. Your sister, Sandie.

Fact of the month

One of the most mysterious languages in the world is that spoken by the Basque people of northeastern Spain. It is not obviously related to any known language group and many linguistics think it may date all the way back to neolithic Europe; for example, its word for"axe" is closely related to the word for "stone".

About us

Michael is British and Sandie is Lebanese. We got married on the 24rth of June in Norwich, England.
We live in the Trade Center Apartments with another married couple from Tazmania: Zadok and Wendy. Zadok and Michael work in Dubai Drydocks as Ship/Project Managers and Wendy is a School Teacher. Sandie gave up the restaurant management business for an office job with normal "human" hours at Orthosports.
We work hard all week only to play hard on the week ends, between kite surfing, sailing and mountain biking!

Reasonable Regulations?!

We would appreciate it if you do not share this information with the authorities, the FBI, the CIA, the tax man or any other conspicuous government bodies.
Part of the idea of this website is to negate the parental concern caused by their offspring unknown activities. However, we cannot garentee that everything that happens around here will negate parental concern.

Yasas: Summer Holidays in Greece

Holiday in Greece was one of the best ideas so far. We were greeted in Athens by a thunder storm and friendly greeks. Our favourite part was Marie, Michael's sister surprising us in the next room with a big Hello!!
We went to a sailing resort called Neilson in Porto Heli. You can see all the toys!!

Between cycling twice a day, sailing, windsurfing and other challenges, every bone of my body ached at the end of the first week! I needed a holiday from this holiday. But would I do it again? You bet i would!
