From London to Cape Town: Expat-ish

I am Yvonne, a very muddled mixture of Polish, British, South African with a little Norwegian thrown in. My last place of residence was London, UK and I now live in Cape Town, South Africa.
1. Why did you move abroad?
We were living a perfectly OK life in London, UK. And then we were offered the opportunity to live a potentially excellent life in Cape Town, South Africa. We felt that Cape Town could offer us a better work/life balance and more family life. And, to the surprise of some, we felt it was a better place to bring up our two children (now 2.5 and 4.5). We had to at least try. So far, so good.
