& We love it!!!!
So we left the UK on the 28th August which seems so long ago! Flights were fab with Singapore Airlines! Quickest journey ever, we flew from Heathrow on the Airbus A380 to Singapore, we then literally boarded onto our connecting flight to Adelaide straight away, it took 18 Hours in total which is great for a trip to OZ.
We stayed at the Rendezvous in the CBD for 3 nights, lovely hotel! and moved into our Short Term Let. The next 3 weeks consisted of picking our bank cards up which weren't ready however we could still draw our money out with our passport so no problems and we received them a few days later (NAB have been good so far, Also used MoneyCorp for the International Transfers they too are good), sorted tax files numbers and ABN out as Husbands subbing, hired a car then brought one from a dealer in Somerton Park (we got a good deal), Transferred our UK Licences to SA Drivers licence, Husband found work within a week (He's a Painter and he has not stopped, there seems to be a fair amount of work about at the moment), we had a good drive around the suburbs, we've visited loads of beaches, used the public transport, registered our arrival with the SA website. I applied for a few jobs, the first interview I had I got the job so I have only been working a week!!! So yes we are feeling quite settled already and just today we sorted out our long term rental.
So as you can see it has been a very busy month and we can honestly say it has not been as stressful as we imagined!
We are off out tonight to celebrate! It is our 1st Wedding Anniversary too today so lets just say the drinks will be flowing nicely!!
Have a great weekend everybody.
