Hello, my name is Grace. Sandier Pastures is my online diary where I share stories about living in Dubai, life as a working mom, blogging tips, travel stories and hotels & restaurants I recommend. This blog was first created in 2007 to document our move from Japan to Dubai.

So, our pastures is not 'greener', only sandier (thus the name of this blog).
