Kacymru posted a topic in Aussie ChatHey ladies and lasses, I hope you're all well. It's been ages since I've been on here, apologies for my absence! I've been busy blogging and trying to figure out how to improve my website (I am definitely not tech savvy, so it's taken a while). Anyway, for those that are interested in what day-to-day life is like here in Oz, then you can check out my blog. I've been here a whole year now and so, if you want to find out everything from the start then use this link as it gives all the posts from January 2011 http://kacymru.wordpress.com/2011/01/ (start reading from the bottom upwards). Most of it is mundane stuff, like going shopping, and the differences I have noticed between here and the UK, there's also plenty of pictures up there too. During my 12 months here I've lived in Adelaide and Whyalla, I've travelled to Darwin, Port Douglas and Melbourne, plus a few places inbetween and I've also tried a whole host of different things including sea kayaking, hotair ballooning, sailing (on a catamaran) and plenty more adventures. If you're thinking of coming over for just a year (like I originially did on a working holiday visa), or if you're thinking of migrating then check out the blog, it's got plenty of info about stuff to do with kids on there, since I am lucky enough to have my brother, his wife and their two kids (aged 2 and 7) over here. Feel free to leave comments, give feedback or ask questions either on here, or preferably on one of the mediums below.. www.kacymru.wordpress.com Twitter: kacymru Thanks for taking the time to read :-) Karen
Kacymru posted a topic in Aussie ChatG'day all!! How the devil are you all? As most of you know I headed off to Whyalla for 6 months work as a travel and accommodation co-ordinator on a construction/ steelworks site (loved it - loads of friendly people and good pay). Luckily for me this enabled me to get my 2nd one year working holiday visa - happy days!! So I'm in Oz until Jan 2013 at the least! As luck would have it again - I got my tax rebate and together with my savings I went for a little jaunt up to Port Douglas in Queensland, I was there for 3 weeks before Chris came to join me and we had the best 2 weeks holiday in Queensland ever - we drove down to Mackay and spent 3 days sailing in the Whitsundays before heading back up and onwards to Cape Tribulation etc. After Chris left I drove from Port Douglas to Darwin, via Mount Isa - a nice long drive through miles of nothingness - which was a bit lonely on my own but still, gave me time to think and reflect. Now that I'm in Darwin there doesn't seem to be a great deal of work here so I may as well head back to Adelaide and see what's occurring! For those of you that want to have a nosey at what I've been up to since arriving in Oz then feel free to check out my blog http://kacymru.wordpress.com/ Anyone that fancies meeting up for food/ drink & a good old chin-wag then feel free to get in touch! I've met loads of lovely people and good friends through this site so am always up for meeting more :-) Cheers! Karen
