It's official, I'm leaving!

Greetings everyone,

Well the time has come! Yesterday around 6:40 AM central time, 2:40 PM Abu Dhabi time, I received my flight itinerary and e-visa  (work entry permit). Barring any booking issues, I'm scheduled to fly out of Birmingham, AL, USA Friday, 12 Aug 2016 (gotta get used to writing the date like this). I'll fly from BHM airport to DFW (Dallas). Then I'll board a 15 hour flight that will take me non-stop to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates  (UAE).

I have confirmed all the details (name spelling, DOB, passport #, etc.) is correct. Now I wait on the travel agency to send me my official e-ticket.

Woohoo! Now, to finish packing...

Happy Days!

Yay! I'm in group 2!

Greetings everyone,

So the time has come. I received an email today notifying me I would be traveling with group 2. People are brought over in groups as their visas process. Well mine has apparently processed and cleared the immigration process. One of the recruiting agencies reported to its clients that group 2 would depart around August 11-13, 2016. So that means I have a little over a week if those dates hold firm.
