    Hi Everyone

     

    Just logged on, about time really, as Steve and I have finally received our State Sponsored visa through- Yippee!

     

    Been great reading about you all setting up home in Adelaide and also others still prosessing their application in the UK. We are hoping to move this year after several years of deliberating the move but finally we're nearly there...

     

    We visited Adelaide last year and fell in love with the beach and so have intention to live South of Adelaide- Aldinga, Christies, Maslin beach areas if we can. Any tips would be most welcome...

     

    Anyway, great to finally break through the barrier and register with Poms In Adelaide.

     

    Hoping to hear from some of you soon

     

    Sarah & Steve

    Thanks for the "Welcome" and so quickly too.

     

    Got the dreaded medical to go through first before we set the BIG date, but looking to spend as much of our Summer , if we indeed get one in the UK, before heading off to sunny Oz! Think you and your family may well beat us if you're planning a June DOL

     

    Have you and your family been to OZ?

     

    Anyway, keep Steve and I posted with progress and thanks again for getting in touch

     

    Catch you soon

     

    Sarah:)

    ;)hi Sarah , welcome to PIA there is some great folks on here with some good advice, we poped out to adelaide in October and also like your choices, the beach at maslin is fantastic ,just watch out for the nudists:biglaugh:,i think (someone will tell me if iam wrong) that its the only nudist beach in oz. Also christies beach is a spot not much talked about on here, but is a very nice spot with good prices. Good Luck, cheers Gra & Jac

    Great to hear from you both. Gutted about Maslin beach, if it is a nudist colony, not that I'm a prude or anything but had a bad experience in my teens with some Germans windsurfing in the nude in the former Yugoslavia.... just remember old, wrinkly, baggy, leathery hangy bits and bobs- Yuk! Not a great memory for me! :arghh:

     

    Anyway, are you and you family in Oz now? Saw that you had just got your Visa through in December.

     

    Been reading the whole PIA website this afternoon and I agree there seems some great folks out there sharing experiences and advise.

     

    Starting to put together a book on Oz with all information gathered from the internet. I am a bit anxious about finding employment in Oz to be fair- Steve should be OK as he's the one we've got the SA sponsorship with.

     

    Anyway, should trawl the employment websites I guess. If anyone has any tips/ favourite agencies please let me know- the thought of not working when I get to Oz frightens me a bit.

     

    Anyway, Happy New Year to you all. I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again soon

     

    Sarah & Steve

    nope, we haven't been to oz and won't go before either - i guess we are either brave or stupid :biglaugh:

     

     

     

    oh, and don't bother with putting sites together relating adelaide - someone's done that already. and a brilliant site too www.adelaidebound.com

     

    have fun spending lots of hours online ;)
