This is my first post but to be honest have been visiting the PIA site for over a year now as part of our research.Have got some invaluable information from you guys so thank you all so much... well here is our story, over the past 6 months we got out PR visas, sold the house and today just had Pickfords load up our life onto a container. Now it feels very real...dont know if i have been living in a surreal world of research and organisation but today is the first day it has felt like thinks are really happening and we are actually going to live in oz. Everyone keeps asking us Have we been to Oz before...no ....have you friends and family there ...yes but in Melbourne...so guess you have jobs then...erm no!! The looks we get off people are a picture but hey life is for the taking and we feel the time is now right to make the move. We are flying with SQ from Manchester on the 15th Oct and landing into ADL on the 17th (long connection in Singapore to chill out) Have 6 weeks booked into a short term rental and hoping to secure a long term rental after that....if there is anybody who fancies a meet up over the next few months would be lovely to meet some fellow PIA members. We have two boys aged 7 & 4 and sure they would love to meet some new pals.
