Thanks Bal for the positive message. I've read some of your other posts on the forum. I lived in Perth for six months or so in '06 and it was one of my favourite experiences of the whole of my travels. I lived up in Mosman Park, which is just north of Freemantle. I've been to Adelaide before and I don't feel that the city is any less amazing than Perth.
It's a shame that your OH's code got shutdown but maybe these things happen for a reason. In my journey to OZ so far I can look back at numerous hellish experiences, the outcome of these have directly contributed to my work skills that have got me to this point.
All the best.
