176 lodged May 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi May gang,

 

So nice to see this thread is still going. Quite a few of us have been here a while now. Personally hubby and I love it. Nearly 6 months for us.

 

We stayed in short term accomodation for the first 2 months In Shenton Park - very expensive but all bills were included. I managed to secure a job in week 2, hubby in week 4. Managed to get a better one after a month. Another "even better" one in the pipeline. So proves the jobs are out there!

 

Have made some awesome friends - many from the may team (Fergamy, Jars, Shelly23, Ms Petite).

 

Managed to get a rental fairly easily but gather this is not always the case. We are SOR near Vic Park. You have to be quick and get you applications in the same day if possible.

 

Look forward to a future May Team BBQ - we had one in December. Another one is long overdue!

 

Xx

Well, it's nice to see how many of the May gang are doing well in Oz. As for us, I had really bad moments with my mother in the hospital the last couple of months, and therefore postponed our flight to Perth which was scheduled for March 19.

 

Hopefully, we will be able to reschedule by July and start the new life in Oz. Congratulations for the BBQ and mainly for getting in touch with each other of the gang. Hope we can join you on the next one :cute:

I saw that there hasn't been activity at all in this our thread. We arrived in Perth 4 weeks ago!!! We love it but no jobs at all!!! We are worried about finding something as live is quite expensive here and in my field (civil engineer) it seems that for any position there are many people applying. Coming from Bolivia is not greatly viewed in terms of experience, but hopefully I can find something, I'm willing to start from 0 as long as the opportunity appears! Hope everybody is going well, if something we are in Beckenhan. Cheers to all of you!

Hey,

I still look at the forum most days but haven't checked the thread for over a year.

We verified our visa over a year ago with three weeks in Sydney.

Most of the thread seemed to be heading to Perth. It may as well be another country.

I did meet up with couple from the thread who had moved to Sydney already. That was great and we've stayed in touch.

We still don't have a move date, somewhere between Aug 2014 - Aug 2015

Are there many of us still in the UK?

Well, great that this thread is still going. It has been just over 2 years now that we touched down in Perth and haven't looked back. We have settled well and happier than ever. Visited family in Cape Town this year January which was lovely. We have made some wonderful friends and settled in the Perth Hills. Linking in with the local community and church has made life so much easier. Looking back at the hard time getting our visa and putting in the time and effort has certainly paid off. We are blessed. All the best to everyone out there and I hope your experience has been positive if not worthwhile.

I am guessing a lot of those who contributed to this thread could be like me going through the citizenship process. If so good luck and how ironic is it that the the waiting list is so enormous. Checking emails and immiacvount avidly once again.
