    Sounds like fun, particularly if you get the random assortment of people they get on Come Dine lol!

     

    There don't seem to be as many people from the south of England on here, probably because it's such a lovely place :wubclub: We came from Tonbridge, Kent; how about you? (Be so cool if you were also from there!)

    Most immigrants from the South of England are in the Eastern States.

     

    ??Really, Why do you think that??

    I know this is a generalisation, but the reason I think is house prices. Average housing is far more expensive in the south of England and the costs in Sydney and the surrounds makes a move prohibitive.

     

    Whilst I have lived here I have 'on the whole' found the UK migrants in SA are from the North of England, and the ones I deal with in NSW and VIC are from the the South.

     

    I have no data or backup to this, so I could be wrong.

    Bugger.

     

    We chose SA because we thought it was posh as and would, therefore, totally suit us. :unsure:

     

    Oh well!

    Again, I am making a generalist statement, but I wonder if someone has been used to living in London and enjoyed the hustle and bustle, maybe the people feel Melbourne or Sydney will have more of a big city vibe. We have some Aussie friends who have been living in London for the past few years and they are coming back soon and they are now wondering whether Adelaide will be too quiet for them after living in London.

    One of the reasons we chose Adelaide was we wanted to get way from a big city. There were other reasons too, but we thought why move from London to Sydney, except for the weather?

     

    The 2 cities have the same issues, long commutes, high house pricing near the city, gridlock etc.

    Possibly. Can depend on what you are looking for. Some people thrive on that. It all comes down to what each holds as important.

     

    After London, it is nice to be able to travel easily, spend less time working and consequently less time with child in care (when he was young) and really Adelaide as a City has a lot to offer and increasingly so. There is great vibe in many pockets of Adelaide now - you just need to know where they are. The beauty is they are all accessible - whereas when we lived in London, it had just become too much like hard work to bother going in on the weekends - especially as we commuted in all week. Here it is no issue to go in to see a show, have dinner in town etc. Can drive and be home in 15mins - bliss. This is what we now value. Love Sydney and Melbourne for a holiday but love Adelaide to live.

     

    Sorry OP, just realised how off thread this is!

    Some parts are......but we keep quiet about our bits of paradise, we don't want any old riff raff lowering the tone.

     

    Oh, I sooo agree!

     

    That Milton guy was spot on. Some people really can make a hell of heaven.

     

    :wink: Yours poshly,

    We are from (used to be posh) Royal Tunbridge Wells and will be making the move in Sept. We feel that Adelaide will be an upgrade in so many ways although I am a little concerned now that we maybe moving to next door to a northerner!:wink: just not sure on whippets and flat caps.:wink:

     

    In reply to the original post, although we have no kids, we are 40'ish and would love to meet up after we arrive.

    We are moving across knowing absolutely nobody in Adelaide, literally johnny no mates! Meet ups would be good to learn from each other's mistakes (I'm sure we will make many) and break the ice on the socialising front as I hear that Australian lot especially the ex poms are quite a different breed!:smile:
