Unicorn Posted January 4, 2010 Report Share Posted January 4, 2010 I've just joined this site (man, you guys are helpful!) I've been reading stuff for a while and now that I can post, I thought I better introduce myself.Well, we first left SA in 2001, just myself, my husband and my daughter. We first moved to the UK thinking that would be the easiest?? We were so wrong, it was horrible. The weather is miserable and the people are miserable because of the weather!! Anyway, we stuck it out for 4 and half years, but then decided we just couldn't stand it anymore. We looked into moving to Oz and started all the research etc, while job hunting for hubby. Then, due to a strange and complicated twist, we ended up moving to NZ instead. We are by no means wealthy and have done each trip on a shoe-string and started each time with nothing. This time we want to take a few things with us, like my animals!!! We have now been here for 4 years and totally love the place, BUT we have one issue and unfortunately that issue is the "lack of choice". Example; We have a huge 4WD truck that my hubby has taken 3 years to build. She is a real beast and goes anywhere! We decided 2 years ago to join a club so that we can go on trips and enjoy the parts of NZ not many people get to see. Well, we had 3 choices in our area. One was a bunch of cowboys, the other was too far and the last one was ok, but they seemed a bit strange towards us? We haven't really enjoyed the trips out with them, but there aren't any other clubs to join???That is one example, but the list goes on for us. I know this may seem like a silly reason, but Australia was our first choice and we've given NZ a good go!We will miss so much here in NZ, but we are definately looking forward to our move to Oz, big time!!!!! Our hearts have always been in Oz, especially mine. I wanted to move to Australia since I was a little girl!!Not sure what else to tell you really??? Just looking forward to this year and can't wait for all the employment agents to get back to work so I can hassle them to find my hubby a job!!! LOL!!We have already had excellent feedback from one agent just before the holiday season started!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
