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.

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.

- 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 moved from the U.S. to South Africa for three years. We moved due to an exciting opportunity my husband had with his job. Second, I won't be working anymore. I'm actually not allowed to work so that will be different given that for the past twenty years I've been somewhat of a workaholic. I'm excited to share our adventures with you! My thoughts and opinions are my own.
