Hi

I thought it might be a good idea for people here to say in very brief format where they are currently living in the UK and where they are moving to (or hope to move to!) in Oz, and maybe how far along they are, circumstances etc in order for people to maybe meet and chat with people in the same boat and who knows - possibly make new friends for life! So I will start us off

 

Currently live in: Epping, Essex, UK

Moving to: Buderim, Sunshine Coast, QLD

Visa Type: Business Owner

Family: Me, Wife, 2 kids (4 and 18months)

Age bracket: 30 - 40

When hoping to move: April 2013

Visa status: granted!

Been to Oz before? Yes 7 times, been all over!

 

From Liverpool,going to Victor Harbor South Australia,where everyones ninety ten years old,but its time for a wind down now,burnt the candle for waaAAAAY too long to be respectable,so quiet is what we want now,been there to validate,and not disappointed at all,theres "enough" there for us/me,few pubs,pictures etc,so it will do for us,IF we ever sell the house that is!

Visa type,the old PR 136 bricklayer,had it since july 08,only got till july 2013 to get over there,so counting down......


"The problem with neo conservative capitalism and it's insatiable greed for more wealth and disparity amongst the populace,is that it ended up being the catalyst for the great depression and modern recession"
