If everyone kept quiet about the things they don't like about Adelaide, it would be a very one-sided forum (and it isn't necessarily moaning, although the rose-tinted brigade do like to make anyone who points out a fault with Adelaide feel guilty for doing so).
Certainly have to agree about the above statement.
The old ..if you don't like it you know where the airport is..or whinging poms spring to mind!!!
As a wise man once said...Adelaide....same s****..shinier bucket!!!!
You came, you saw, but you didn't conquer (not first time round anyway) hope it works out this time.
If you fancy meeting up PM me, any excuse to visit Glenelg

[QUOTE=Diane;164781]Great story and thanks for posting.
@Squareman - I see where you're coming from; we were looking at a rental once on behalf of some people coming over here, and the landlord was saying that he thought migrants from places like Italy and Greece (in the recent past) actually settled much better when they came to Australia because - having a different language to learn - they came prepared for it to be a 'foreign' country, whereas many Brits came over expecting it just to be "England with sun" and were thus (understandably) disappointed once it turned out to be a bit different, and when they get here they actually feel like "foreigners" which they are not always expecting!
Oh Diane, this is one of the truest statements I have ever read on this website. Absolutely spot on. Nice one.
