    Eyyy Oppp!

     

    Being Yorkshire makes no difference at all here ;-)

     

    My accent is very strong and some of the locals have trouble with it - spesh after a few beers!

     

    Ask away..........

     

    We came from Pudsey,nr Leeds.

    Hi Ryan

     

    Our TRA took 18 working days as not on modl list but at the time seemed to take forever and a day :D

     

    Hang on in there - you will get that email/letter soon and its a fantastic feeling when you do. Worth all the hard work :D

    :-)

     

    It is a whole world different to what you see on Neighbors ;-)

    Life can be very tough as you settle at first but it gets better.

    Finding friends can be hard,we have been lucky and met some good folk.We also meet up with people from the migration forums now and again.

    Recently we have met some smashing people (two families) who I'm sure will be life long friends :-)

     

    We did come out for a reccie trip,the second time I came over I kissed the ground as I got off the plane - I knew it was home.

     

    I normally advise people to come over for a reccie trip (not a holiday) - it does help to give you an idea.But I've met many people who have setttled well without the trip.

     

    Hell - it's an adventure!! - treat it so :-)

     

    I don't regret abandoning ship.

    Hi Ryan and other Yorkshire folk, actually any fellow Poms. We have been here in Adealaide a few years now and have never looked back. We are more than happy to meet and share experiences. We live in the South of Adelaide. Come from sunny Sheffield. Never visited before arriving and left all family and friends behind.

    Yell out if you have any questions, :lol: we will be more than happy to help.

     

    Cheers

    Hello everyone,

    Me and my otherhalf are currently living in sunny Rotherham.We are both police officers and have got our interviews for SAPOL at the end of this month so fingers crossed!! Just stumbled across the site whilst revising for my interview and its been great.We do use the police forum which has been informative but it's always nice to hear from more people who are living the dream!

    No doubt i'll be posting tonnes of questions in the near future.Brace yourselves!!

    This is now a week before we go and meet our migrating agent for the first time! we have made our decision and it is final: we are on our way to meet some of you guys but before this i need some advice. My husband is a joiner and we are talking of settlind down in or more than likely around adelaide with our 3 kids who are 9, 6, and1 and we would like to know a bit more about the nice areas around the city: school is very important. We have never been to australia before and like they say, location is everything. any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Mags x
