Just making an entry to introduce myself, I guess my wife and I are quite old for this site, as we are hoping to move out to Adelaide to be with our son's family and spend more time with our grandchildren.
We applied for our Visa last June, but are still awaiting a case officer, which hopefully will be from March 2007 onwards.
We are travelling out again on 1st Jan for 6 weeks which will be our 10th trip over the past 14 years, I now know Adelaide pretty well, and able to drive to where I want to go without problems. We also have a number of Australian friends, as my son's, in laws are some of our very good friends, and they have introduced us to many of their friends. They are Farmers and live about 80 miles from Adelaide in a country area called Cooke Plains, which is the other side of Murray Bridge, so I also know a bit about the country areas.
Wishing all fellow visa applicants a Happy Christmas and a moving New Year.
