Emigrating to New Zealand is no small feat. You will face major challenges such as getting a job, selling your house, packing your things, arranging visas, and booking flights.

But it doesn’t end there.

Just when you think you have all your ducks lined up in a row, when you have shown the kids every glossy picture of New Zealand mountains and beaches and ice cream, it will hit you. Like a ton of bricks.

Uncertainty. Doubt. Fear.

These feelings of fear are completely normal (and very, very common). But that doesn’t make them any less frightening.

In this week’s episode, we wanted to talk about those three fears and try to shed light from the other side as we go through one of the very fears we worried about.
