27np27 Posted February 5, 2010 Report Share Posted February 5, 2010 Hi to all fellow ForumitesI have been a member of this forum since October 2009, but this is my first post. During this time I have read numerous posts by most of the members on this forum, providing advice, and sharing their pre and post migration experiences and I think it is time me to contribute actively.Bit of background.We are a family of 3 plus father-in-law (82 years). Son is 16 years (year 11). Wife is a Registered Nurse (RN) and I am in Food Science. We moved to Australia from Durban in 2000 so this is our 10 year anniversary.We initially spent 18 months in Bordertown, a small South Australian Country Town (population 2500) on the border with Victoria. This was an excellent experience having lived our entire lives in a big, highly populated city. As migrant (from experience) a small country town is an excellent place to start in Australia. Their culture may be different to city people but these country folk are friendly, loving and very caring to migrants.When we left Bordertown there were 9 other South African families living there due to sponsorship mainly from the Meatworks.We have been living in Henley Beach, a western suburb of Adelaide for the last 8 and a bit years and just love the lifestyle here. My main aim for being part of this forum is to provide any assistance I can to anyone requiring it. From previous posts there are a number families moving to Adelaide and we would be happy to show you around and assist in any way we can. Please PM me if you want take me up on my offer.
