      nicky, alan and charlotte

      Hi were are newbies

      Hi just found this forum, we are hoping to move to Adelaide early next year. That is myself Nicky, hubby Alan and 16 year old daughter Charlotte.

      We passed TRA last month and our 136MODL visa application has just been submitted. We have never been to Adelaide and would be grateful for any information any of you can give us regarding Adelaide.

      It would be great to chat to folks who are going through the same rollercoaster as we are. One miniute we are really looking forward to it and the next wondering if we are doing the right thing, I am sure that we are not alone.

      Anyway must go and get on with some work

      Bye for now

      hey nicky,
      i think it is totally normal to have doubts- it is a big move! but that is not to say it has to be permanent, and always remember you started down this path for a reason, and that reason(s) probably still exists, it is just eay to forget at times when you think of the scarier aspects! someone on here (im sorry to say i forget who) has a website you might want to look at, looks pretty helpful- its www.adelaidebound.com
      best of luck with it all!

      i know what you r going through, if u r like me then u will have doubts all the way and even question your reasons when u arrive in Adelaide, i remember when on the plane over there everyone was asleep apart from me i think i must of had to long to think about it and had a minor panic attack. but everthing pans out in the end, dont get me wrong there r ups and downs. It dosnt help with parents wanting u 2 come home either but stick with it or u will be like us, went out in 96 came home 2001 now going back out in october the grass is with out a doubt greener on the other side, well it would b if it rained a bit more
      ps u will regret it later in life if u dont go now u have started the process

      Hi Nicky

      We can relate to how you are feeling weve never been to Australia let alone adelaide

      My feelings about the move seem to change from day to day but when we are being

      analitical about it the pros seem to out way the cons I think even if you had been you

      couldent be sure weather you would like it or not. I know a couple from school who had

      been 2/3 times loved it really gungho the best thing they were ever going to do. Now they

      are their(11m) they dont like it and want to come home. We figure whatever happens we

      will stay for 2 years and reasses at the end. And even if it dosent work out what an

      experience. Whats the fraze It is better to have tried and failed than never to have

      tryed at all. You/we will probably love it and at least we wont have any regrets.

      Good luck with the visa

      hi nicki and family!
      yep, i agree with the others - best to give it a try and find out yourselves!
      i am rather confident that we will like it - although we haven't been to australia once! -
      but then again: there is always a place somewhere else if you really don't like it!

      and just like you i do get the wobbles
      but then i think of the things i'd like to change and hopefull oz (adelaide) can do this for us

      go for it :)

      The closer you get, the more scarer you become. But if it's right which I think it is, you cling on to that:DVicks & stu

      HI and welcome to PIA :)

      Yes, adelaidebound.com is my website I put togther when doing our sponsorship last year so hopefully will be of some use to you :)

      We have been here 2 months now and had never been to Australia before making the big move and have no family here. So far we have no doubts at all that we have done the right thing. Life is good and we have a great circle of friends here ;)
