Avoiding Crisis


with 4 comments

Things will be a bit slow around her for a few more days. I’m knee deep in research about all those possible locations that we can bid on.

Here’s an update, however. we started with something like 110 available posts. We are now down to 17. Of those 17 we know for sure that 5 of them will make it on our list. We can submit a maximum of 15 bids, but don’t have to submit 15.

Iceland and Slovenia were cut yesterday. Cuba, Ireland and Norway are on shaky ground. Lithuania and Estonia were added. And this is how it goes.

We are torn between staying in a Spanish speaking country or trying something different.

We are at the same time excited about new opportunities but a bit down about the reality of having to leave Argentina. Okay, if you must know, we’re actually pretty darn depressed about leaving Argentina. such is our life though.

Got to get back to research…next on my list: Dubai.

  1. I’ve been to Dubai and have some friends that live there. It’s a nice city. I’d consider living there.

  2. Dubai was second in our list about 2 years ago. Everyone I’ve talked to loved it there. Lots of shopping.

  3. I wish I had a list of places that I could potentially live, even though you don’t get the final say. You might have already answered to this, but is there any chance that you could be assigned to a place that you don’t bid for?

  4. Michelle – there is always a chance that we will be directed to go somewhere. But we will typically have an idea about it before it is finalized. And most likely it’s not that they call us up ans say “you’re going HERE” but they say “we really need you to go HERE, you’re a perfect fit. what do you think?” but that last question really isn’t a question at all…
