Until we meet again – my latest column for the Telegraph

telegraph2My latest column for Telegraph Expat was published yesterday. It’s about that unavoidable part of expat life – saying goodbye time and time again. It seems to have struck a chord, as it’s been shared a lot on Facebook and Twitter, and Doha News asked me to write a little bit about it yesterday, too. You can read the article here.

  1. All so true. I haven’t yet developed a full coping mechanism but I found that 2 things:
    1. When you say good bye also make sure you’ve got some sort of plan (however vague) for when the next meeting is
    2. Don’t do airports, if you can help it. Say good bye at home, at work, in a pub but not in front of the check in desk. That’s simply heartbreaking.

  2. This article really hit home for me as I just said goodbye to my partner. My first experience of saying bye to someone in Doha. I fee totally lost without them even though they were only here for 6 short days.
