Well after months of endless waiting we have arrived in Adelaide on the reccie. Even though we have been granted our 190 visa we have never been to Austrlia before.
Well it's only 5 days in and I must say we have all fallen in love with the place and the people. The place is beautiful and clean buddy but not too busy people in the city smile at you as you pass and you can always hear thank you and excuse me. Everyone we have met both pons and Aussie,s have been great, nothing is never too much of a problem.
Been to Aldinga Zbeach what a stunning place even saw wild kangaroos on the roadside. Been to Clelad Wildlife park. Fed kangaroos , held koala bears.
Been looking into house learnt a lot about buying houses. Went to a new housing development in Seaford. Saw a fantastic four bed house which we fell in love with asked the agent how much $200,000 and thought WOW that is cheap fantastic, wasn't until we saw the next agent that he explained you buy the house, and the land, then spy extra for footings and finally py for treatment. That added approx $300,000 o the cost not so fantastic but made more sense.
We have been to Mount Barker, Hallet Cove and other places along the coast.
We have been shopping in Coles and Woolworths, things definitely more expensive but like back home plenty of offers on so buy when you can I think. Did see a tub of celebrations usually £4 in the UK here $30 won't be buying them over her.
All in all having a great time met and meeting up ith P in A members. All fantastic.
Tomorrow Department of Eucation for myself and agencies for my husband and park foe my daughter (who can't believe the numbers of parks they have) later down to Hallet Cove beach. Then more research next week but not forgetting Adelaide Zoo and Glenelg leisure Centre.
We are staying in the Majestic Old
Lion Apartments in N Adelaide would highly recommend to everyone excellent service, beautifully clean and a 10 minute walk to the city and on the free bus route into the city.
Shall add more in a few days
