I am definitely in the stage where I am constantly flip-flopping between extreme excitement and extreme panic. One moment I feel completely confident in everything I have done in my research and preparation, and the next moment I am convinced there is something I have forgotten, something I do not know about yet that will catch me off guard.
The thing is, I know for certain there will be these things because no one can research so thoroughly that they suffer no surprises upon a move to another city, much less to an entirely different country. This brings me to my questions for my readers:
For those of you who have moved to another country–or even just a big move within your own country–what things surprised you that you wished you had planned for? If you have insights specifically to Mexico, that is wonderful for me, but I hope that everyone will feel free to share. You never know who you might help.
Even if you have never commented before and are one of my silent readers, please take the time to share. It is greatly appreciated.
