My husband has an opportunity to move to Italy for work. We would be living in Torino, Italy. We have 2 children (1.5 and almost 3) and another child due in August. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience? What was it like? Both my husband and I have traveled... and I have studied abroad, etc. We also have already moved out of state from the rest of our family.... so we are completely used to being w/o family nearby. I guess I am just nervous about schooling... and doctors... and getting around. Like would I even have a car? Would I just use public transit. Things of this nature. So I am curious to hear from others who were in a similar situation. If it were just me and my my husband... it would be a no brainer... and i'd be ready to go in a second. But we have 3 little ones... so i am concerned. On one hand I feel like it is just too much to handle... language barriers, being in an unfamiliar place with 3 kids, getting around the city. But on the other hand I feel like it is a great opportunity. I also do have family... in Torino. I am of course not close with them... but my father grew up there. So in emergency... i wouldnt be totally alone I guess. Any advice?

All I can tell you is google is your friend. When we moved from England to Canada we gained a lot of information from google. My kids adjusted very quickly and easily, they were 2 and 6.
