So you’ve decided it’s time to raise a family. Lucky you – but where’s best to do it? Whether you’ve been offered the job of a lifetime (do they even exist?) or have just had enough of familiar surroundings, packing up and moving to another place can be bloody terrifying, especially when the kiddlywinks are involved.
According to a recent survey conducted by the expat networking group InterNations, 46% of the world’s expatriates have children, but only 21% are currently raising their sprogs abroad.
