Jon here. I thought it would be appropriate for me to give a full rundown of the process of moving ourselves to Malawi. As a brief recap, Naama and I knew we needed to relocate after a set-back in my immigration application to South Africa late last year. With my employer’s connections and reputation in … More We’ve Arrived in Malawi!
So! Just to recap, we were supposed to be coming back from our trip to the U.S. and then move to Malawi straight away… Right? Well, slight curveball: some of our plans were predicated on us keeping our SA apartment for future travel (albeit open to any visiting staff from Malawi) and that ended up … More Our (Eventual) Move to Malawi – It’s Been Interesting Already!
