    Hi everyone :notworthy: We are Lou and Paul & we are hoping to be in Adelaide this time next year. It has been our dream now for at least 4 years and now we are finally doing something about it! We were going to do it then but I dont think we were quite ready, we certainly are now. Paul is ex forces and at present, it has been the longest hes been in one place. He soooo has itchie feet!!!! ;) I thought I would introduce ourselves, as I've been a lurker and really enjoyed reading your comments.

    Hopefully see you all around,

    Lou X

    Hi lou i can understand about the itch feet!!

    My dad was in the army and we have been here 6 1/2 years now and it feels extreemly odd. It's the longest I've lived anywhere and I think I've paqsses the bug on to my OH. This is our biggest move to date though. good luck with the trip and the visa.

    Hi Lou & Paul

     

    Welcome to the site, we are a friendly bunch here!!

     

    Good luck with the whole process, it will be worth it in the end! Steve is currently coming to the end of his 22 years in the Royal Marines and then we will hopefully move to Adelaide. It will be strange for us to be settled in one place and not feel like we are just there for the short term. (Assuming it all works out for us of course!!!!)

     

    Keep us all posted on how its all going and best of luck to you both

    Hi Lou glad you found this site I wish there had been something like this when we came over 12 years ago, can't believe we've been here so long, we love it I believe our children have had a much better upbringing and better future here. Have been back to the uk a couple of times as we both have elderly parents (82&87) that's probably the worst thing about living so far away feeling helpless when things go wrong for them, but my mother in law used to come over here every year for 3 months but cannot travel now, so either one of us goes over to see them, if you go out of season it's not too bad! England is just soooo busy and crowded!

    Good luck

    Hi everyone!

    My name is michelle and I have wanted to live in oz for sometiime now, and finally today have put the wheels in motion. I understand it is a long process but hopefully it will be worth it in the end. I have been absorbing all the great advice on PIA!

     

    My family consists of my partner Phil, my daughter Becky 13 and our black lab lulu.

    Phil has just completed his degree in nursing, mental health.

     

    found this site by accident and have been totally hooked on it for most of the afternoon.

     

    we are currently living in Lincoln, and at the moment its freezing.

     

    i am coming to Adelaide in Feb to stay with friends and to have my first look at Oz, i am so excited. i just worry that i might not want to get on that plane home again!

     

    looking forward to hearing from all:)

     

    michelle, phil and becky
