When you get engaged the first question everyone asks is, "when's the wedding." When you are pregnant (I'm guessing) the first question everyone asks is "what is your due date?" or "are you going to find out the sex?" Below is a list of questions people ask you when you quit your job and are moving to South Africa. With answers.
Q - How long will you be in South Africa?
A- 3 years
Q- After the 3 years will you come back to the US/NY?
A - We don't know
Q- Where in South Africa are you moving?
A - Near Johannesburg in the Northern suburbs map it!
Q-Did you have to get shots?
A- No, at least not that we are aware. So hopefully no because we didn't.
Q- What are you (wife) going to do?
A - See this post
Q - Wow! What did your parents say?

- Hello and thank you for taking an interest in my blog. This blog tells the story of some big life changes. First, my husband and I have just moved to Geneva, Switzerland for a few months following a few years of living in Johannesburg, South Africa. The two places could not be more different. I'm excited to share our adventures, challenges and insights with you! My thoughts and opinions are my own.
