A whole year in Oz already - it's flown by, here's the blog to tell you all about it!

    Recommended Posts

    Hey ladies and lasses, I hope you're all well. It's been ages since I've been on here, apologies for my absence! I've been busy blogging and trying to figure out how to improve my website (I am definitely not tech savvy, so it's taken a while).

     

    Anyway, for those that are interested in what day-to-day life is like here in Oz, then you can check out my blog.

    I've been here a whole year now and so, if you want to find out everything from the start then use this link as it gives all the posts from January 2011 http://kacymru.wordpress.com/2011/01/ (start reading from the bottom upwards).

    Most of it is mundane stuff, like going shopping, and the differences I have noticed between here and the UK, there's also plenty of pictures up there too. During my 12 months here I've lived in Adelaide and Whyalla, I've travelled to Darwin, Port Douglas and Melbourne, plus a few places inbetween and I've also tried a whole host of different things including sea kayaking, hotair ballooning, sailing (on a catamaran) and plenty more adventures.

     

    If you're thinking of coming over for just a year (like I originially did on a working holiday visa), or if you're thinking of migrating then check out the blog, it's got plenty of info about stuff to do with kids on there, since I am lucky enough to have my brother, his wife and their two kids (aged 2 and 7) over here.

    Feel free to leave comments, give feedback or ask questions either on here, or preferably on one of the mediums below..

    Great blog - I've enjoyed reading it. Mine's a bit mundane in comparison as it started out as a 'craft' blog with occasional notes and pictures of the family. It was shared by friends only with a limited circulation but it was fun reading back about the Visa process and the last few hectic months as well as all our previous trips to Adelaide before we became RESIDENTS!

     

    If any one is interested PM for a link - perhaps more suitable for the older folks out there as I'm an aged grandparent not a trendy young thing (though I do know how to have a good time!)

    Thanks for reading the blog, I'm sure yours is just as interesting (I ramble far too much in mine ha ha), and I bet your family and friends back in the UK love reading your blog :-)

    Thanks for sharing your great blog...not read it all yet but look forward to the rest. It very much reminds me of my first experiences in Australia and why I like the place so much. My last trip was quite a few years back so looking forward to getting off the plane in Melbourne in March and not having to go back this time!

        Hi. Wondered what people generally do re. travel insurance when returning to the UK for holidays/to visit family? I am British and now also an Australian citizen. My partner is Australian. Our daughter has an Australian passport, was born here, but dual citizen as I am British.
        I have always just purchased an annual travel insurance policy, but ours is currently out of date. We don't have any other big trips planned this year, so wondering about purchasing cover just for a trip this year which is 3 weeks in the UK visiting family and 2 weeks in France. Presumably I am covered for medical issues in the UK and I wouldn't need to be insured for spending time in the UK in my parents' home... but obviously want to be covered for any flight issues / trip cancellation / luggage loss.
        Or is there no way to separate these, and we need just to buy general travel insurance cover, just as any Australian family would when visiting the UK? Thanks in advance for any advice!
