  1. Here here There is absolutely no point to this thread, making it out to be more sinister than intended.
  2. Jannine If that's the case then most people on this forum have no right to give advice or comment on anything because they still live outside Australia. What rubbish!
  3. Hi janine Sorry but you seem to be under the assumption that everyone is now jumping on this person because nobody understands his culture. Well you are wrong they didn't mention where they were from or what culture? We are all not trying to get out of this country for any reason but a better lifestyle than we may already have. We all tried helping by giving the best answers we could and have been shouted down but where were your answers? They may have listened to you with the long list of qualifications. Sorry its wound me up.
  4. Sorry by the OP I mean, this person doesn't seem to want to take on board anything anyone says so is there a point?everyone's going around in circles and we don't have to be from any particular culture to understand that.
  5. Yay what a good honest quote, let's see if this one gets shot down!

    Validating the Visa

    Maybe wrong but is it not the same as a 175? That gives you less about 9 or ten months in our case. Mrs murky
  7. Yes but it has to work both ways, we have experienced this in Britain too
  8. I'm sorry but you never did tell us where you were from for US PEOPLE to understand your culture! Now you are being offensive :mad:

  10. It's not your back garden in Scotland is it stacey?
  11. You know that makes no difference. Stop being a wind up merchant
  12. Oh pleeez you need to change the subject
  13. Is the OP a lady? Not being rude just asking, not that it makes any difference
  14. I think your quite right Stacey, I'm sure we can find someone who really needs a bit of REAL info. :wink: Mrs Murky
  15. No not just think about, but stress about something that hasn't happened, how far has your sister got with her visa and is it a permanent one? She needs to validate before making the move and in the worst case she can go home. Somehow I think you are obsessing over this more than the person who's live it may change for the better, are you sure your not trying to put her off?

    Thank you We just can't wait now, that's what two days in oz does for you :biggrin:
  17. Hi Your sister needs to get the visa first and then go validate it so she can she for herself you can't just take other people's word on everything. my family validated over the weekend and found out heaps when we got there and found public transport as good as anywhere. I can honestly say in the nearly three years it took for us to get our visas we have never thought about having to claim benefits as we intend to hit the ground running and find jobs, any jobs so that we can pay our own way, that is supposed to be the Aussie way. The claiming of benefits as soon as you land is now sadly the British way. Mrs Murky

    Funny thing was my 14 year old girl thought she would have a laugh and jumped up and started to really over exaggerate the squats and jumpes and even threw in some stretches and A guy who looked like mr bean ,on the other side of the plane spotted her and came running round to join her copying her every move all the Brits were in stitches coz they knew it was supposed to be a joke. We said she should make a career out of it, inflight aerobics. :biggrin:

    Thank you so much Yes we couldn't believe the amount of rain or how cold it was, we ended up in Erina and terrigal and the teens still had to run about on bondi beach, they were soaked and turned blue but didn't care the swimming distance between flags was about five inches I think lol. So will remember to still pack some winter woolies for the move.

    We had a similar problem when we went to Florida a few years ago the kids were young and they took them to one side separately and asked them a heap of questions like if we were their mum and dad, what were our date of births and what jobs we did, I don't remember my parents year of birth now never mind when I was five! We couldn't believe it when we asked them what they were saying to them.

    Hi They just asked the reason for the trip so we just told them we were there just for a quick visit to validate visas. They were fine with that after they stopped laughing at us for only going for two nights. I thought they would query that but they didn't question it at all.

    I think most airlines have to do that depending on the lateness of arrival at the connection and hours spent there. I suppose it would look bad if all passengers were having to camp out for the night on the airport floor lol

    No that was included apparently because the flights timings were an inconvenience to us- as being stuck at the connecting airport for more than just a few hours at a late hour the airline has to provide accommodation, it was great we were all greeted and taken by coach to the hotel.

    They break it up by keep waking you up to be fed and watered believe me lol so your hubby should be well pleased at all the little trays and boxes. We even got a very spicy pot noodle that they came around with the boiling water to fill and a slice of pizza in a microwave box which was really weird!

    We got the latest pirates of the caribbean, new x-men, water for elephants, super 8, Paul and sucker punch and then a few more, so all quite new and worth watching, but every time you tried to pause a film to go somewhere it would take it back to the start which was frustrating! and they kept making long announcements which would freeze the film. The CD albums had a good choice as well. The website said that there was plug sockets on the rows to charge iPods etc but we found out it was on the newer planes.
