Just wanted to say hello!
Hello! We are new to PIA, although we've been reading the threads for a while and love to know how everyone is getting on in Adelaide.
We are Mark and Jo, Jack 7 and George 4, from Redditch in Worcestershire. We started applying for our visas last year and our medicals have just been requested, which means we may not have too long to wait now! We are hoping to leave in November. That seems so soon after months of waiting and hearing nothing. After feeling like the waiting would go on forever suddenly it might all be happening in the next few months! AHH! :v_SPIN:
We are really excited about finally getting to Adelaide and the boys can't wait either, although I do feel really nervous and apprehensive at the same time! Is this normal? Does everyone feel this way too?
Would love to hear from anybody, especially if you are leaving for Adelaide in the next few months.
Hi welcome to PIA forum,
Now meds have been requested a visa should be just weeks away,:D
Thanks for your quick reply! It all seems to be moving really quickly now and there seems to be so much to do. But it's so exciting to be close to doing what we've been talking about for so long now!!!
hello jo and family and welcome to pia!!
i know what you mean - we are nowhere near moving just yet (we've only just sent our visa application off) - and already i sometimes think of the actual move and how it could be. with knowing nobody and nothing over there
but then i think of the things we hope to get out of it - we haven't been and probably won't go on a reccie - so it's all hoping really!
and of course great feedback of the people already out there
We haven't been on a reccie either....but we've heard so many great things about the place , we can't wait to find out for ourselves.
The time really does go quite quickly..with having 2 young boys you just have to keep going as normal really but knowing that in not too long you've got this great thing to look forward to!!
Glad you finally popped in to say 'hi'. We won't be doing a reckie either and are planning to be out there in about 8 months though we are in no rush.
HIya and welcome to PIA :v_SPIN:
Good luck with the last bit of waiting for the visa :D
We have been here 4 months now and came over without a reccie too
Welcome to PIA. You all must be very excited its actually happening for you!
Judi x :D
Hi & Welcome to PIA.
We havnt been on a reccie and prob wont go on one either. Not sure if thats a good thing or not, but were prepared to give another country a good try and hope for the best. Whats the worse thing that can happen. We dont like it or dont settle. We will come home.
We havnt got our visa, and they seem to be taking longer at the mo, so we prob wont go till next summer (english summer) next year.
Hi Jo & family
Welcome to the forum
We all seem to be in a similar position. Moving country is a nerve racking time, not knowing what you are getting yourself into, leaving behind job security and family ties.
For me at least, I have been through this process once before by moving from South Africa to the UK 10 years ago.
The main thing is to believe in your self and to believe you are doing the move for the right reasons.
We are about to visit Adelaide in Oct for a reccie, so we will post a thread on our experiences upon our return. So watch this space ..... :v_SPIN:
