Moving and relocating abroad to a foreign country can be a bit daunting and overwhelming; Not only you have to adjust to the new country but also the daily routine becomes complicated;
Where do you shop? What kind of food do you buy? How do you find a doctor? How do you open a bank account?
And the list can go on and on…
All those things that were done on automatic pilot in your home country become perplexing when you are moving abroad; I remember that my first supermarket shopping in Venezuela and afterwards in Canada took me more than two hours. I was not familiar with the local products, and I just did not know what to buy.
