(oh an i've not finished painting yet either) hopefully towards the end of next year but we'll go in october for a recci if we have to. we've been looking at reynella, happy valley, that kind of area. sooooo excited cant wait, dont do patience
Hi, we have been here 10 weeks and every Aussie we have met has bent over backwards to welcome us.They are really interested and even amazed at the thought of moving your whole life to the other side of the world.
My wife is at home with our 2 children and our neighbours have been incredibly kind,even to the point of lending us furniture when they found out our stuff was going to be late.
Be realistic and always try and be positive,it is different but worth the effort of trying something new.There are also some great ex pats very willing to show you what is on offer if you want to find it.
Good luck and take the leap
