    Hi Natasha. I've loved ready your blog! I am about to embark on our expat adventure just over the water in manado north Sulawesi. We are just about to pack up the house and am starting to feel the apprehension (along with excitement)-'what are we doing?? Is it the right thing to do?? Are our kids going to hate us for it?? We have twins too by the way! 3 year old girls and also a 7 year old girl. Would love to email with you for any advice to make it a smooth transition. Dsmarshall@aapt.net.au. Cheers! Donna
