If you are in your 50s or 60s and new to Dubai or arriving this summer I would love to hear from you. As you may be aware the summer can be a lonely time to arrive with many expats leaving the hot weather in Dubai. I have been here 2 years and have made some great friends. We live in various areas from Jumeirah 1, City Walk, Marina, Jumeirah Park to Arabian Ranches. We go for coffee, lunch, shopping trips and days out, Our husbands love rugby and golf and enjoy exploring the other Emirates by driving off-road through the Wadi’s. If this sounds interesting to you, I/we would be happy to meet you.

Hi Esther so pleased to hear from you. Not a problem if you are not in your 50s. If you do t mind, we don’t mind. Unfortunately I am now away and not back until September 1. I would be pleased to meet up then. Where do you live? We can meet pretty much anywhere that suits. I’ll see you when I’m back. Kim

Good morning Ladies; The above post is perfect for me . After 5 years in Singapore my husband and I are considering bringing our Engineering business to Dubai. Our 4 adult children will remain in Sydney. We intend visiting in a few weeks time to look at different areas which could suit our needs considering it will be for the 2 of us, do expect visitors.... is a villa better or a large condo..? There will be times where I could be on my own , .so will certainly be joining interest groups ( at the moment not sure what that will be). I’d love to learn bridge from a beginners level... did start here in Singapore , for various reasons didn’t get too far. I’m sure there’ll be coffee mornings in different areas, definitely a must for anyone new to town. I ‘d appreciate any help and advice from those in my mid 50 + group. Angela.

Hi Angela we would love to meet you. If you will have days on your own, you may want an apartment in the Marina. There are a few coffee mornings there. I know a couple of ladies who live there. I love having a villa with a pool and I’m literally 7-10 minutes from the Marina. I guess really it depends on where the business will be based. I’m a group that play Mahjong, but sure there are groups that play bridge. Happy to meet with you when you arrive and introduce you to the other ladies. Any particular questions please feel free to ask. Kim

Hi Kim, Thank you for such a quick reply.. I do appreciate your kind offers and will certainly be in touch. We plan to book flights today, just need my husband to set aside some time..,!! At the moment will use a relocation person, I’m very keen to lease a villa, Having found a huge apartment in an older block of condos spoilt with space I think a villa could be the answer. I will certainly stay in touch when we have the more dates and details. Look forward to meeting you and any other ladies. Angela.

Hi Angela Great please keep I touch. I know you may not have a lot of time when you arrive, but pleased to help in any way. I live in Jumeirah Park. There are no many new places, too many to list. Happy to help with areas if needed. Hope to meet you soon. Kim

Hi Kim, I'm almost 50 and new to Dubai. I live on the Ranches and would really enjoy to go for coffee or lunch. My husband is a cyclist but he does enjoy to watch rugby and play the odd game of golf. Look forward to hearing from you. Tracey

Hi Tracey great to hear from you. I’m back in Dubai, got back last night. I’d be happy to meet for coffee wherever suits you. I have another good friend who is in the U.K. at the moment, she too lives in Ranches 2. I’m free any day this week and happy to meet where it suits. Another person has also mentioned meeting up. It would be nice for the 3 of us to meet. I’ll see if anyone else from my group is here to meet up too. Look forward to meeting you. Kim

Hi Tracey and Cary 11am is perfect. Shall we say Wednesday 11am Marina Mall this time around and the MOE the next time. Meet at Costa then decide if we want coffee there. I actually prefer the coffee and ambience of Le Pain on the ground floor near Waitrose. Look forward to meeting you both. Kim

Hi Kim, My apologies for such a long break with emails. We have at last been able to schedule a look /see trip , leaving tonight via Hong Kong. I’d love to meet you and any other ladies , a coffee seems to be the best way, We’ve booked the Ritz Carlton near the Marina , I fly out Wednesday PM. Could you recommend either someone or a relocation company to show us both areas and type of housing.? My husband has people to see, we can work around that, the priority being possible housing and areas. Also are there any husbands free for a drink as well. ?? Look forward to meeting you, The recommendation to join this group has been fantastic and very welcoming. Angela.

Hi Angela a lot has changed since we last had an exchange. My villa in Jumeirah Park is available to rent from mid/end of November. Happy to show you our villa for now. As far as relocation company, Santa Fe, DXI Logistic. Haus Haus show villas in our area. We went on property finder and had a list of villas to see and contacted the agent that way. We the.n had the same agent who took us to all the areas and we narrowed it down. Let me know what day is good. I’ll get the ladies together and see if anyone available fir drinks with husbands. Monday is mahjong. We play in the Marina. Would be a good day to meet. Let me know what’s best for you and I can take it from there. Look forward to meeting you. Kim
