    Need a home away from home? Need to hear that familiar accent? There are a few of us kicking around! And we tend to all know each other. I went to school with three people here and my parents know their parents who live here too!

     

    Get in touch!

     

    Oh and me? I'm from Ryton, Gateshead... that's down near Blaydon on A695 road!

    Hi Cal....I wish I'd known about that when i lived in Adelaide! Back in Northumberland now.

    I remember being in Parabanks Mall and hearing a Geordie accent. I turned around to see a little old lady in a wheelchair, and it was so good to hear ther Geordie "twang". Turned out she came from Prudhoe and had been in Adelaide since the 60's. She was so pleased to have a chat with someone from home and couldn't wait to get back and tell her hubby she'd met someone from geordieland!

    My other half is an Aussie, so we will be back over to Adelaide visiting his family many times in the future...be good to meet you then!

    Merry Christmas! :emoticon-signxmas:

    Hello there!

    For now we live in a village called Bishop Middleham in County Durham, I don't suppose anybody's heard of it. But we've just had our visa's approved and are visiting Adelaide on 23rd of Feb for 11 nights. It's just a recce and to get our passports stamped. Should be moving to Adelaide as soon as we dare!

    Any advice, opinions etc would be greatly appreciated. Could even meet for a pint while we're there!

    Dean and Lesley.:)

    Hey there fellow geordies,

     

    my husband anthony (another geordie) have been living in adelaide for over 7 years. We still love to hear the geordie accent. Now and again you walk through shopping centres and hear the odd geordie.

     

    He currently live in highbury and are loving life over here.

    We're from Hartlepool, as I said above. I'm a press photographer, working with my hometown newspaper for over 25 years. My hubby is a printer, and is the main reason we're here. We arrived here late 2010, and haven't looked back. Not to say it's been easy without family and friends, but we're still here, and still loving it.

    C'Mon Boro!

     

    We are from Eaglescliffe and heading out to Adelaide in the Summer

     

    Can anyone give us some tips on which areas to look at to live. I'll be working in Parkside so ideally somewhere commutable but with good secondary schools would be ideal.

    Hi

     

    I'm from the Boro originally but now reside in Stockton (Eaglescliffe).

     

    We are heading out to Adelaide in the Summer and looking for places to live within commutable distance to the Parkside 5063 area just south of the city centre. So we are looking for any tips on areas to look at which are reasonable prices, good for families and have decent secondary schools.

     

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi MrAndrew, Dirk was my boss, and Tony Elliot worked with my hubby in the press room. Yes, I've seen the History of Hartlepool in Images on Facebook, i've just been made an administrator for it. Looking forward to helping out the others too....Just love the friendly people in Adelaide and adore the place itself. We're in a great suburb, five minutes from the railway line to the city, and five minutes, in the opposite direction, to the beach at Semaphore.
