Destination Adelaide?

    Recommended Posts

    hi,

    I'm 25 and i may be moving to adelaide by myself.

    I've had a couple of interviews with a company over there. As long as there are no problems with migration, they will offer me a job. I'm pretty nervous about it because i won't know anyone for, like, 20000 miles!, but I'm excited about beaches and blue skies.

     

    I've got loads of questions that I hope can someone can help me with but I'll spread them out over the forum boards!

     

    cheers,

    2scoops.

    Good luck with everything---we're all nervous (well, at least I am...and I will have a husband there).

     

    Feel free to touch base closer to the time if you need someone to show you around.

    Hi 2scoops,

    welcome! im sure you will find this site very helpful, everyone seems to be keen to help each other out a lot, and be supportive:)

    I am also planning to move to adelaide alone, hopefully around may time. i have friends in australia, but noone in adelaide so will be pretty much starting from scratch, though hoping to meet up with at least a couple of folks from here, either before or after i go.

    feel free to message me if you like. if youre based anywhere near london there are 3 of us (so far) from this site who are going alone, and are hoping to meet up between now and december. youd be welcome to join us! either way good luck with it all. what sort of work are you in?

    hey,

    Thanks alot for the welcome.

     

    In reply to the questions, I havn't done my "tra" yet, nor do i know what it is! and my work is in marine engineering.

     

    I live down in Plymouth but may be up for a meet somewhere sometime.

     

    Adelaide sounds cool and the more I read about it, the better it sounds, but I'd like to know why those of you who have no connections or work there choose this city over any other.

    Hi am also heading off to Adelaide by myself. I had begun to think I was the only one not moving as part of an extended family group so at least you have set my mind at rest.

    hello 2scoops, not sure if your male or female but hey no worrries as they say (a lot) here!! Well done on making the move, you'll have a blast I'm sure I have just been contacted by some friends who want to move here but might have left it too late as he is 45 in two weeks. So your making the right move to do it while you are still young!!

    Not sure how we can help but if you have any questions please feel free to write to me. My son is 21 and might be able to show you around when you arrive.

    Welcome to Adelaide -or almost.

     

    To answer an earlier question, we have no contacts in Aus apart from those built up by ourselves.

     

    We came to Adelaide because we liked the climate, and for health reasons it had to be a dry, not humid. We also looked at house prices and didn't want to be too far out so we could have plenty of schools to choose from (we're both teachers) but there had to be enough going on so our children could do things (one is 14, one 11 so we are thinking ahead).

    ASC are based in Port Adelaide, aren't they? Well I know they have a big shed thing there!

    Hey 2Scoops,

     

    One of my mates works at ASC, are you going to ASC or AWD, essentially the same company but one half works with Subs and the other with the new Warships.

     

    Your welcome to come out for a night on the beer with us in the city when you arrive.

     

    It's not plymouth but it's still a great night out.

     

    Cheers

    are you going to ASC

     

    I'm all about the submarines. Do you know what your mate thinks of the company?

     

    Also, a couple of beers sounds good!
