It was fine to start with when everything was all exciting, but when the reality sank in, it was quite stressful to start with.
I definitely went through all of these phases. I am in the latter one now.
As a family we have all felt very lonely and homesick. Things are getting much better now. We have been here 3 months and we are starting to find our feet and discover where everything is without getting monumentally lost in this urban jungle.
The opportunity to travel, to earn more money and give my children different opportunities.
Missing friends. Trying to drive around this city, which is such a congested nightmare on complicated roads.
Most definitely. I had a seriously nasty scare at the weekend as my husband injured himself and went into a similar state as having a stroke. I had no idea what was the matter with him. I was totally unprepared, did not have an emergency number, did not know which hospital to take him too. Luckily my friends and neighbours came to my rescue and sorted out an ambulance for me. We had to wait a really long time for any medical help to come and it was incredibly scary. My advice to everyone, make sure you know which is the best hospital, what their numbers are, have a list of emergency contacts for people to ring on your behalf and keep money in savings in case you need to pay for medical help.
