Aw thank you! Deloitte has been a huge help so on the Denmark side it’s been smooth sailing. They are handling all of the paperwork, house search, moving costs, etc. When we get here, they’ll help us get our various bank and health accounts set up in addition to helping me get registered for Danish classes. It’s been a huge weight off our shoulders knowing they’re helping us. We also have friends here who have gone with us to various stores this week so we can scope out the costs of daily life. The more knowledge we have, the less scary it is.
Stuff stateside is far more stressful. We’re selling our house in addition to splitting up all of our possessions. We’re getting rid of 1/3, storing 1/3 and taking 1/3 with us. It definitely makes you realize how much you DON’T need on a daily basis. Thankfully, we have made some very good investment choices that are helping us shoulder the financial burden of basically starting over. When we leave the US we will have 0 debt (no mortgage, all CCs paid off, no car payments) and we will have cast off virtually everything we dont need. That part of it is definitely making it all worth it. We will be starting off completely fresh in the middle of our lives. Very few people are given this opportunity and we are very aware of how fortunate we are. As scary as it all is, it’s truly a gift for all of us.
