    Pathetic as I am, have never even been in a chat room:(let alone a forum... not even sure what to do or say! Only Hi! am coming to Oz in November for a loooonnnggg holiday and looking to emigrate as soon as I can, have a daughter in Adelaide. Would love to hear from anyone that has already taken the plunge and would like to meet up over a nice glass of Shiraz and listen to tales of Oz:chatterbox: the good and the bad!!!!! Only after visiting last year cannot imagine any bad! My first time, so have pity on me and everyone say 'Hi' back!!:) and show how friendly you all are.

    Hi Sandy and welcome to PIA. If you have already been you might find we are picking your brains not the other way around:). Good luck with your visa and enjoy your holiday.

    Hi Sandy, Welcome to the site.

    My wife and I are also members of the senior section with children in Aus.

    We now have our visa and will be arriving in Adelaide about the beginning of November.

    If I can be any help, or if you wish to know things about Parent Visa's, please let me know.

    Hi Sandy,

     

    Don't worry we will be gentle with you. Welcome to the 'get the hell out of here' club. :biglaugh:

    Where abouts in Adelaide is your daughter? How long are you going for? As Ali said when you get back we could be asking you all the questions about Oz.

    Hi Sandy,

    Welcome to PIA, where are you from in God's country? I'm a Pontypridd lad myself.

    Have a great holiday and don't drink all our Shiraz,

    HIya,

     

    I'm sure you will find at least 10 people on here who would be extreamly happy to share a bottle or two while discussing the plus and minus points of Adelaide!! :) If I was there i would be one!!

     

    Good luck

    G'Day Sandy and welcome to PIA! Nice to have you joining us. You'll love the weather here in November. There's nothing better than relaxing with a bottle of Red Dingo (chilled of course) and watching the sunset with great company.

    Hope to catch up when you get here

    Hi Sandy

    Congratulations on taking the plunge - I'm sure all will go well, how long has your daughter lived here?We live down south and I work at a winery in Mclaren Vale so can help you find a good few bottles of wine!! I also volunteer at the visitors centre in Mclaren Vale so if you want to know where to go for a good meal or coffee, I can tell you where to go!

    Let me know if I can help with anything.

    Hi Lisa

     

    Will do, thanks !! I visited Noarlunga last year and was smitten........... maybe look to living in that area near the vines eh! Not sure how long that will be as am applying for cpv, when I have found out a bit more about it.......... sure its worth it, but will cost about 75,000 dollars! My daughter Lisa lives in the city.

    Hi Sandy,

     

    Well you were always going to do well on here as soon as you mentioned the bottled stuff:wacko:, you found the level so quickly! How did you know?;). As for being a novice at this sort of thing, are you sure you're not a ringer? You know how to do all those fancy quotey thingies which is more than I do. Enjoy your visit.
