    Just curious if there's any others heading out or those already there and settled? We're family of four leaving Chester-le-Street in April 2013 for Adelaide! Would love to hear from fellow northerners and my husband would be especially interested in any SAFC mad emigrants

    We are! I'm from Newcastle (lived in Washington) and been here 3 years. Due to go back in 2 weeks for the first time since we arrived. We have never looked back :)

    Great you two! Lisado how are you feeling about coming back? Are flying on the new Emirates route to Newcastle? We fly out with them in April. Would love to hear about your journey (emigration one that is, not what the flight was like), same to the dirty mag R175 :wink: seriously my husband actually likes a good bit banter with his black n white friends as after SAFC, NUFC score is the one he checks (hopefully to see them lose!), do you get to see many of the matches on tv out there? Thanks to both of you for replying!

    Hahaha...love the banter...lol

     

    I have Foxtel but there doesn't seem to be as many NE team games on live, and then again with work I don't really get to see the live ones in any case, but they do show most eventually if you don't mind not checking scores or wearing ear plugs in work.

     

    I know it won't bother the Mackems on here but EUROPEAN GAMES are on Setanta so it is extra cost again...I have gotten into AFL...Crows for Premier League and Port Adelaide MAGPIES for SANFL...funny no dirty Mackems...lol

     

    I don't really even get the chance to catch up with the poms anymore due to work but a lot of the Aussie lads support Chelsea and Liverpool...bloody a glory hunters...hahahaha

    Hi, we're originally from Hartlepool, but not SAFC supporters...at all, NUFC all the way (hubby does check the scores for his beloved Hartlepool United every week, as well).....Good luck on your journey, i recently visited UK, and used Emirates...They were first class..

    Hello fellow North Eastener's - UK and Oz side!

     

    My husband and I are emigrating to Adelaide from Newcastle - towards the end of next year is the plan at the moment. We had a quick visit in August (was cold of course!) to activate our visas, and had a couple of days to look around, seems like a nice place and it's all exciting and nerve wracking at the same time! We're thinking Hallett Cove and Semaphore look nice suburbs - plan to rent for the first year.

     

    My husband is a NUFC supporter - me, not into football - hehe! Like most women i guess! Am sure there will be a good Geordie contingent in Adelaide - hope so as I love the Geordies!!!!!! Question is, is Adelaide as fab for a night out as the Toon is? xx

    Hi - we are flying with Emirates this time but when we flew here 3 years ago we came with Cathay Pacific and they were superb. Its only as I wanted to fly direct to newcastle this time that we went with Emirates. I am disappointed they cant guarantee a peanut free flight and they weren't flexible on our hotels in Dubai but we will see how we go. its our first time back since we moved and I am excited to see family but not looking forward to the cold! I am looking forward to Xmas as I still can't get my head around xmas here - it's funny!

     

    Our journey out here was ok. We were lucky to have a rental when we arrived and I managed to get a job when we pretty much landed and hubby in 2 weeks of arriving. We have both moved jobs since then and work in positions we would never have had in UK. We made some wonderful friends and would bnever go back to Uk. Of course we have had ups and downs but I can't imagine being anywhere else :)

     

    There are a few Geordies, etc out here. My Aussie mates ask me all the time if we are really like "Geordie Shore" - yeps its hit here! Cringe

    Oh Blimey can not believe Geordie Shore has made it there - our lives are over!

    Great replies everyone, seems the majority are already there, understandable when I looked out the window this morning and saw snow

    I am more Northern, from just outside Glasgow. Myself, partner and young daughter are emigrating in July. Would be great to meet up with others when we arrive.

    I agree it's good to make some pals before leaving - I couldn't have gone through this without 3 girls I met on here who all left aug/sept. would be great to meet people on my timeline (from wherever they are) as I don't want to plague them with all my worries! They have been fab that said and are loving Adelaide life
