Hey guys – another newbie here (been a visitor to the site for some considerable time).
Am mulling over the possibility of emigrating to Oz. Trouble is –
1 For the life of me I can’t wear thongs, and
2 I think those Snuggly things look like a brilliant idea!
Should I be thinking about Canada instead?
Seriously though, I am hoping to be able to come over for a holiday/reccie next year. The idea is to obtain a better picture of what I may be gaining from the move, and what I need to give up. Even with all the info and help you kindly provide on this site, it is just so difficult to get a handle on things without actually being there. Guess I will just have to be patient a little longer. I don’t have kids – so the better life would just be for me! Colleagues who have made the move themselves, and others with friends/family who have done it – all say how absolutely wonderful it is out there, and how they should have done it years ago.
I should mention (and please don’t hate me for this) that I have an Australian passport (being born in Adelaide), and so don’t need to go through the Visa application process. However, the age 45 cut-off must be there for a reason – am I too old to be thinking about this at 46/47? Are the “Super” payments going to cost me and arm and a leg?
