Whatever your agreement determines, it is important to settle as quickly as possible and turn your accommodation into a home. This is especially true if you are a family with children.

If you have a small allowance to airfreight some goods to arrive with you, or close to the time period that you will arrive, then you can use this to send some personal belongings such as photos, kids toys, some familiar home items, favourite music, etc….whilst you wait for your full shipment of goods to arrive, this will help you to feel more at home with some familiar surroundings and this in turn will help reduce the inevitable effects of  culture shock.
