      New to the site

      Hi All

      Have been researching Adelaide and migration aspects for a few months. We feel very serious about migrating and have just bookde a flight to Adelaide. We are going for 3 weeks for hols and a good look around to help us decide for certain. Have not booked accommodation yet and looking for 3 bed prefer pool and fairly close to a nice beach. Glenegl looks nice but don't really mind.

      I am a qualified social worker with lots of experience, but unfortunately don't have qualifications to work in OZ. Would need to top up i guess. My husband is a newly qualified electrician and hasn't the 12 mths exp, so we will have to wait a little while before applying. We are attending a seminar in Mancnester tomorrow and hopefully gain lots of information.

      Anyway we are really looking forward to Nov and would appreciate any info on where to stay for a base.

      Welcome to both of you

      It is a really good idea to go to the country you are planning to emigrate to..You will love it. It is the only holiday I didnt want to come back from!!

      I will be going to the Expo in London in 2 weeks time and hoping to pick up some tips and hope to get my OH a job.. He thinks he will be doing some research on all thegolf courses in Adelaide!!!! I think not!!

      Good luck with it all and have a wonderful holiday in November. It will come round before you know it

      Hi Diane and Chris

      Welcome to PIA, we went to Adelaide last August for a visit and stayed in Glenelg and found this a good base as easy to get to everywhere from there. We found the public transport good around Adelaide and Glenelg has a nice beach and some places to eat etc. Good luck with your trip in November.

      Absolutely gutted

      Chris and i went to a seminar at the hilton manchester airport today. Was very informative, however to our surprise was told that chris would not qualify as he had not completed an apprenticeship as an electrician or got at least 5 yrs exp. Both gutted, chris has spent 3 yrs part time to qualify with all up to date qualifications. Not sure where to go from here, has been a furniture assembler for years, learnt on the job. i dont qualify in oz to practice as a social worker, but told i could try and get sponsor as a hairdresser. Not worked as a hairdresser for 6 years.

      Have some thinking to do

      Diane & chris
