Just wanted to say hello as my partner and I are currently in the process of getting things sorted to come to Adelaide! We are both very excited and nervous too! We are due to come over Jan 2011.
Just a couple of things I wanted to ask. I have been offered a job as a nurse, but my partner is worried he will find it difficult to get work (I have tried to reassure him, but I think it's a bloke thing). He has no formal qualifications, but has extensive work experience installing sky tv home entertainment, lottery machines and is currently working for an organisation installing information systems in hospitals, GP surgeries and schools. He is one of those people that will give anything a go, so will be open to suggestion.
Also, any tips on what areas to live in would be much appreciated. My work base will be around central Adelaide, but don't mind max 20-30 min commute.
One last thing, we have a dog that we are also bringing. Do most of the areas in the suburbs generally have open spaces, parks etc?
Look forward to hearing from you.
