I hope you are all doing well. I am seriously looking at buying a ticket for the 20th of October to make the move. As Hotels are very expensive (even though I can get 50% discount if they have unoccupied rooms) and short term rentals aren't any better in terms of price I am looking at several hostels to spend about 10 days in them. www.hostelworld.com has been a wonderful guide. I have shortlisted three hostels two of which are centrally located and one is located in Glenelg. As I don't know where centrelink offices are located and where I should go to register a TFN, insurance (Medicare does not apply to 475 visa) and the fact that I won't be driving as my drivers license (if I pass the final test) will be posted to my new address in Australia is my best bet.
It would be wonderful if you guys could take the time to give me tips and bits of the things I need to do when I arrive. I'm not worried nor anxious. I'm fairly happy and looking forward to making Adelaide 'home'. Meeting you guys will be a bonus and I'd love to attend meetups or meet for coffee or a pint. In the mean time take good care of each other and enjoy the nice breeze of Spring.
