4 years today.

    Recommended Posts

    hi all

    Its 4 years today that we arrived in adelaide.

    our story is....we came on a skilled pr visa having never visited or having any family or friends here.we came with a small amount of money and a open mind i got a job after 2 weeks which was a god send

    We stayed in oaa (glandore) basic but good value, we then moved up to mount barker great place but just too far from the beach for us. we decided to move closer to the beach and ended up in port noarlunga where we have been for the last two and a half years and love it here.

    We have been lucky with the homesickness, apart from the odd day it has never really bothered us,jamie was 2 when we came so he knew no different and hes well settled goes nippers,plays footy, soccer and loves the beach. Then we had harry who will be 2 in feb and things are good.

    we have had family visit which is nice and they are returning later in the year.we have not been back for a visit and cant see us going back anytime soon. Some things are great here but it does have its problems hoons,drugs and crime same as everywhere else but the good out weighs the bad imo. As a family we do lots of stuff together and have more time together.so all up its been a great 4 years got to go im on surf patrol this arvo.

    hope you all have a good time here.

    cheers mark.

    Hi Mark, Jo and little ones

    Nice to read your report on your 4 years in Adelaide maybe we might bump into you and your family as Noarlunga is where will be living. I see you are a bricklayer Mark just wondering if there is much work available at mo and if you think things might be picking up??

    Again congrats on you 4 years in Adelaide

    All the best Adam

    hi mark I'm a brickie to we hope to be over early next year.we to are looking to settle around Port Noaralunga.

    I just wondered weather it is as nice as the photos we have seen and is there enough going on for a young familly.

    Also i just wondered what the job fronts like for brickies and what kind of salary to expect without sounding rude.

    All the best Trev Vicki and Lauren.
