    All of you are welcome to come to our 5th of November meet up (it's not all Scots but there may be a few and there'll be a decent bunch of people to meet regardless).

    Hi there, we are from Airdrie then stayed in Carnbroe for a year in a rental after selling our house before moving to Hallett Cove!

     

    There are a few scottish families within Hallett Cove that I am friendly with amongst others from other places, ie london, birmingham, wales, brighton, australia, yorkshire but to name a few!

     

    Feel free to PM me and we can get something organised.

    Hi Grant n Debs,

     

    We lived in Auckland for just over 2 years and before that in the Hokianga but just for a few months. How'd you enjoy NZ?? Its a lovely place but Auckland just not for us really. Our first impressions of Adelaide have been very good. The city is just lovely though we havent really spent that long there (just been a bit hectic trying to get a longer term rental). There seem to be a lot of nice places here and its difficult to decide where to settle. Plus the weather is fab, our night time temps are the same as the highs in Auckland!!

     

    Where are u in Canada?? My sis lives in Calgary?? Very cold there!!! Anyway, hope to see you guys when you get here.

    we are in halifax, nova scotia just now. adelaide was our original plan , but we got the chance of canada and thought we would give it a bash, but its not for us, so heading to oz!!!! luckily got a 5yr visa through debs being a kiwi!!!

     

    be good to meet up when we are there. i will contact you guys for sure and we can meet up.

    Hi Gill and Jamie

    Glad to see that you made it to Adelaide - hope you are settling in ok. Last time we spoke on here you were trying to sell your house (I assume you did in the end) and were organising sending over your moggy. Did you bring your cat - hope the/she arrived ok. We are still here in NZ but would prefer to be in Adelaide! We are coming on a visit in January though so cant wait. Our daughter and son in law are now settled in Glenelg and they love it. Take care and good luck with getting jobs, rentals etc.

    Hi Grant and DEbs

    Good luck with your move to Adelaide - hope things work out for you there. We are still in NZ (just north of Wellington) but plan to move to Adelaide when I get citizenship. OH is a kiwi but I just dont fancy going over on the 5 year visa, although I know its a reasonable one. There are a few people on here moving to Oz from NZ - as you say its a lovely place but not for everyone. There seem to be more opportunities in Oz - and def warmer than Christchurch in the winter!

    best wishes

    hi marianne and cliff,

     

    thanks for your msg. yes, there seems to be lots of people in NZ making the move. cant blame them!!

     

    adelaide has always been our choice for ozzie, so we cant wait. i have nz residency, but could wait to get citizenship, just had to go!!!!

     

    when you know when youre going, you will have to let us know!! will keep you informed on our progress there.

     

    cheers, Grant and debs;)

    My great great grandad was Scottish, a Macpherson with a really horrible tartan. So am a smidge scottish myself:biglaugh::biglaugh:. Suppose it is like the aborigines though, others have to recognise your claim to be one.:biglaugh:

    Hi Grant,

     

    My Dad had a printing business on the high street in Montrose up until he retired 3 years ago and my brother still lives up there, the world only seems to be getting smaller :-)

     

    See you in Adelaide

    Hi Grant

     

    I am originally from outside Glasgow in a place called Johnstone and my wife is from Bonnyrigg in Edinburgh, we lived in Newtongrange Edinburgh for the last 2 years before settling in Glenelg.

     

    We know quite a few scottish families that live around Glenelg, so you should feel quite at home when you get here.

     

    Cheers
