Hi, we received our visa in July. We had been out to Adelaide a number of times and as I'm now the wrong side of forty we thought we would get our visa, validate it and if we decided move out when the time was right. Better this than think ‘if only’.
The minute we got our Visa, the planning started to go, sold our business and car. We couldn’t sell the house so we rented it. We told our family then and everyone was supportive. Now it's only 10 days until our flight and I can see family we meet getting a bit melancholy every time.
My wife’s parents will visit, my own are getting on a bit and don’t see them but you never know. We are setting up Skype on laptops and TV’s for them and hopefully they will be able to keep in contact this way.
At the end of the day, it’s for the good of our children and our lifestyle we are going and hopefully the parents and family can support that.
As my wife’s sister in Adelaide says,
Live the life you love… love the life you live…
