Don't want to be gulity of using this forum to get loads of priceless information before we arrived and then not using it afterwards!
So here's our verdict on Adelaide so far:-
Arrived early Jan in the height of summer and we were instantly made to feel very welcome by people we have met on here, various other forums & Aussies alike! Everyone is happy to say hello in the street & all with a smile..we have instantly fallen in love with Oz and its' inhabitants.
Summer has been a hectic schedule of BBQ's, beach meet up's, camping trips and for us - kayaking down the Onkaparinga river! Our tv just sums it up every time we turn it on ...LG..Life is Good
We have had the luxury of being able to settle in for a couple of months but now the holiday is over & we must start looking for work.....going to be tough fitting work into our hectic lifestyle lol.
I would just like to assure anyone who is about to make the move that if you love the great outdoors then it's the place to be! Do make the effort to accept as many invites as you can when you arrive..your friends soon become your family and you need the support network.
After 4 years of waiting for this dream to become a reality I was so worried that I had put Oz on so much of a pedestal that it would not live up to my expectations.....so I'm relieved to say that it has more than exceeded them!
Of course it's not Utopia - that would be Oz with my rellies/Uk best mates and us winning the lotto but it's pretty damned close.
Good luck to all those about to make the move
