What do you wish you had known about this particular city/country before moving there?

How there are a lot of tick-borne diseases that will kill your dog. That there are shortages of some staple goods. Also, be prepared to see a lot of trash. - Jan 2024

That we would have to drive so much. - Jun 2022

Expect a slower pace of life. If you enjoy the outdoors and history, this will be a great post. It's probably not the place for you if you enjoy a bustling city and good restaurants. - May 2022

Nothing really. - Nov 2020

That the food wasn't great. - May 2020

How French it is! - Nov 2015

I wish I would have known that no one speaks English. I also wish I would've known how gross and nasty the public beaches are. I thought we were going to come here and be next to beautiful beaches but that wasn't the case. In the summer the beaches are like a candy bar with ants crawling all over them. Movenpick saved us here. I wish I would've known how people stare here, this was a big culture shock for me. The way people always stared really took a toll. I wish I would have done more research or even paid a visit before committing to come here. here is NOTHING to do here so you and your spouse if you have one will be spending LOTS of time together!! Many expat women don't drive here because it's crazy, there are worse places in the world, but if you're not experienced then it's very difficult. There are some women who drive here but most don't. - Nov 2014
