One year here

    Recommended Posts

    Hi

    my wife and I have been here for 12 months now after leaving our two older children behind in the UK. It was a hard decision but both girls want to live in Australia so if we hasn't we would have been too old to get a PR. visa. We have been to Oz before but never Adelaide and it was Adelaide that chose us as my wife is a teacher.

     

    The year has flown and we both have jobs my wife had to go on TRT which after 24 years teaching in permanent regular jobs at one school was harder to adapt to waiting for the call at 6.30 in the morning and not knowing what school or year group age she would have to teach. The differing school systems and endless paperwork and differing pay scales in each school sector is mildly frustrating especially at tax time

     

    however we have both settled in really well the people and place is fantastic as is the lifestyle. The whole area has so much to do and see and the flights around Australia are extremely cheap as long as you book early we have been to Perth Sydney and the Gold Coast so far in the 12 months and not been disappointed. Both our girls have been out and confirmed they want to come out so at the moment all is good though when they go back to the UK we are sad but then we see the weather and lifestyle we have and it cheers us up

    we are visiting the UK for Xmas so will get a better appreciation of of old and new life then .

    HI

    our eldest daughter is already planning on moving To move in summer 2015. The youngest is still at university and has a few more years to do before she can come. We are definitely not looking forward to the cold and rain especially as Adelaide will be so much dryer and warmer when when travel
