The Adventure Starts Here

Hi to all the oz fans. After reading all the messages on the blog wed page i must be the only one who is not taking half of the U.K with me.(ONLY JOKING). Is their any body who is doing this adventure of a lifetime on their own? or am i the only one.(BILLY NO MATES).Be serious now, i beening wanting to go to Australia for a number of years, than two years ago i booked a holiday it was out of this world. I landed in Sydney than did a 16 day tour up to Darwin though Adelaide to Port Augusta,Woomera,still at Coober Pedy, Ayers Rock,Alice Springs,Tennant Creek,Daly Waters,Katherine and on to Darwin.After that i flew to Perth it was a fantastic holiday,i did not want to come back.So i started the ball rolling and got in touch with an agent. Well thats other story.Lets say i have been take for a ride. Well Chin up, until next time. Take Care, Karen.

Hi Jane, When do you do the big move to Australia?Yes you do have a lot more to think of finding the right school and working in between. I dunner think any one whos making the move half way around the world would not be excited and scared at the same time, it ant like moving to spain or france where you can come back home if you dunner like it, when you have done the 24 hour flight than you know their is no going back.Good Luck. Karen.

Not exactly alone but just me and my son 11. So in some ways that makes it harder as I have to think about schools and childcare too! Excited, but getting scared now too! and having sleepless nights thinking of all there is to do!!

Hi Marion,I live in Stoke-on-Trent,Staffordshire.I am still waiting for my application to go though i have had three case officers now the last one made a right mess so i have to wait again, its been four weeks now when i had to sort the paper work out again, in a letter they send me they said they would pay the fee this time than two weeks ago a had a letter saying that my third case officer is leaving, ITs ONE BIG JOKE.but i ant laughing any more.Yes i would like to get in touch, it feels at times you are the only one whos trying to make a life for yourself but no one whats to help. The agent who i am with is very well know but i would not recommend them. Karen.
