Thanks Hotscot,

We don't expect to go for another few months so this was just an initial exercise to weigh up between buying new when we arrive or take our own gear.........aside from elec goods of course. However, my personal feeling is that the family would benefit from having some familiarity mixed in amongst the new surroundings.

The shippers said that there will be swings on some of the costings but said to budget between £3.5 and 4K. Seems quite reasonable to me.
