Just a quick intro post. My nameís Tim and Iím planning on moving out next Jan. Iím a 39 year old GP very disillusioned with work here in the NHS and when the opportunity arose to work in Oz I jumped at it. I have a job lined up in Mclaren Vale starting early next year. I came out for 6 days last month to do a quick reccie for places to live and really liked Henley Beach and Brighton. I will be coming out on my own which is a bit daunting but also exciting at the same time. I did look around Aldinga and up the coast from there but I feel it may be a bit quiet. I think it will be much better for me to be in a vibrant community rather than semi rural or rural. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping to live near the beach but itís not essential. I think I will be better placed where I can get out and about and hopefully meet people.
Have any other people moved out alone and found it easy to make friends and integrate? Families and couples for that matter? Are there groups like running groups etc than I can join again to meet people?
I am expecting to go through a roller coaster of emotions when I move I just hope I am making the right decision.
Look forward to hearing from you :)
