We have found that you have to cut your cloth accordingly.....as we have done and i think that after 2 1/2 years of being here we have finally stopped from hitting the ground running and slowed to a jog.....
Its hard....very bloody hard at times......but you have to concentrate on the big picture...and the reason why you did it all in the first place...build a network of friends as fast as you can.....these guys become the people you shre the good and the bad times with.....there is always this place where you can always come for chats and advice, sometimes you may not get what you want but hey thats a public forum for you.....
Do your research......
Good luck with it all.
good god it certainly doesnt sound as easy as i thought, i wont even read the lst few threads to chris he'd never head over. uummm i didnt really think about having a couple of years of heatache before life picks up potentially, having been to oz on a working visa i thought i had a good idea about it, but it doesnt seem like it. have to have a think now-feel like crying x
Adelaide has a very much "who"'you know attitude to get your foot in the door. Then you can prove " what " you know !! This site can be very usefull to someone new or thinking of moving over !!
Welshey , How far down the UK is south where you become a cashed up pom with no or very little mortgage ??? I know i for one have a bigger mortgage here than i had in the UK but i have a bigger house !! Both me and my wife work to pay for it and so we should , as we both would have done in the UK !! Like Heaps good says " Cut your cloth accordingly !!" If you go and buy a big 4 bed house in Glenelg then expect a massive mortgage or deposit.To reduce this you either down size your house and stay living in an expensive are or you keep the 4 bed and move slightly away from the golden suburbs !! Its not rocket science !!!
Good luck with all your decisions!!
