The Adventure Starts Here

Well we our plans are gathering pace now!  I visited Perth Western Australia in the last week of January/Feb to activate my visa.  I spent a week there for a whirlwind visit and in that time I visited 4 schools in different areas and had a look at a couple of areas to live and a dozen or so show homes.  We have now given our details to removal companies to get them to come and give us quotes on shipping our worldy posessions half way round the world.  Now the real work starts as we have go through everything we have accumulated over the last 13 years of living together and be ruthless about what we want to keep and what has to go!

I stayed with relatives so only had to buy a flight.  I flew with Emirates and changed in Dubai but have flown with Qantas before and changed in Singapore.  Hope this helps.

We did everything on line so didn't use an agent as everything seemed very straight forward but it depends what your circumstances are as to whether this is the right way for you.  We had a partnership visa as my husband is an aussie citizen so that was very straight forward.  Hope this helps!
