    Congrats to you too!!! Bet you are looking forward to June. Have you been looking at areas in Adelaide to live, thats all I've been doing looking at houses, schools and the different areas. Really want to be within 20km of the City, no further really. No doubt we will have a good recce around when we get there in April. Hope all goes well for you, have you booked your flights yet? If not, look at Malaysian Airlines, one of the cheapest we found, a good airline too. Take care.

    Hiya,

     

    Yes flights and 6 weeks accommodation booked...we are looking at Port Noarlunga area, 20 mins from the city. This time last year we were in Adelaide doing our reccie...it actually feels longer than a year, due to this cold winter! We had 2 weeks and did a mad dash all around the south of Adelaide.We found all the areas we looked at very nice.

    We only went north of Adelaide once and stopped in Salisbury where my Mum's second cousin lives...we didn't stay long enough to see the whole area but it did feel different to the south.

    You sound just like me last year looking at houses and suburbs...you can get quite a good idea on areas through realestate and Google maps...have you tried street viewing some of the houses/ schools to check out surrounding locations? The amount of vitual walks I took...lol!!!

    Good luck in April and check out some of the shopping centres as you can get a good idea on what the locals are like...get my drift?

     

    Take care and look forward to hearing how you get on...

    Hi! Joolz, Port Noarlunga is were we have booked our rental accommodation for the 3 wks, that's strange, and its an area I've always gone back to when looking at houses. Yes! we'll have a good look around when we are there and I'm sure myself and teenage daughter will be able to sneek off down to the shops at some point. I'm always on the Google maps and walking along the streets of Adelaide, if I see a house I like I always go into the map facility and check out the neighbours and whats close by etc, I think its brill. Anyway, I'll give you an update when we get back, hope all goes well for you and family. Bye for now.
