About this blog

My name is Nick Leech and since 2010 I’ve been a feature writer for The National, Abu Dhabi’s daily English language newspaper.

I studied design history at the Royal College of Art in London and practised as a landscape architect before entering journalism and although I now write about a broad range of issues, I still enjoy writing about design whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Despite being in my fifth decade, I still cannot drive. This marks me as something of an oddity in my adopted home.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.

One thought on “About this blog

  1. A very interesting blog. I am also a blogger (Arabian Tales and Other Amazing Adventures). We are moving from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in March. Loved your article about Al Matar, Looking for a nice neighborhood for me and my husband to relocate to. Any other suggestions? Have already discounted Al Reem Island, Khalifa City and Al Raha is our backup (just a bit too far from town). Thanks for any thoughts you may have.
