Nosy, Lazy Cow here !
Just wondering how many people came without a reccie and if not, do they wish they had?
We were, perhaps, a little relaxed when we came over. Despite the fact we sold everything, only my OH had done any real research - although I did watch a video produced by the SA Government - and we didn't visit first.
People seem divided into two camps; the "Mad if you don't" and the "It'd just be like a holiday so why bother?"
We were in the second group. We wanted to keep the little money we had for settling down and felt we wouldn't get a real feel for the place until some months had gone by. SA wasn't quite as we'd imagined but we were very lucky, were made to feel welcome and have never regretted the lack of a reccie.
So, what was your story and, without anyone being rude to anyone else lol....did you, or didn't you?
