Hi - arrived 3 weeks ago and am really struggling with settling in. Have got temporary accommodation, and have almost bought a car (difficult to do here when you don't have a car already), and am now about to get my teenager into a school. We were out here last year for a few months and went back to the UK because it was so hard to make things work, and now I'm having a second go.
Am finding everything an uphill struggle again, and worried about money because everything is even more expensive than last time! I'm feeling REALLY homesick nearly all of the time, and wondering if I have made a terrible mistake (again!).
Any other newbies or nearly newbies out there feeling the same way? Or oldies who went through this in the beginning.
Would also love to hear from anyone who migrated or settled as a single parent.
