Moving to the Bahamas - need to make a decision!

6 years ago
Hi there,

My husband and I are currently trying to make the decision as to whether to move to the Bahamas (Nassau) from the UK, with our two daughters - 8 & 4.

It would be a two yr minimum transfer with his work, and they need a decision super quickly, as we would need to be over there by October at the latest.

It's all a bit overwhelming at the moment. I'm between feeling so excited by such an amazing opportunity and the potential for the girls to experience a new culture, to feeling crazy for thinking about making such a big move.

I've done lots of research on areas to live and schools - I guess I'm wondering from a personal point of view how easy it'll be to meet other Mum's/friends. We'd be looking to live in the Cable beach area.

Although I know everyone's experiences are going to be different, I'd love to hear from any others (especially with young children), who have made such a big move - how it went and how you're finding living in the Bahamas now you're there?

Thanks in advance :)

Emily
