Etienne123 Posted September 1, 2010 Report Share Posted September 1, 2010 Good evening, Goeienaand, SawobonaMy wife and I have been living in the UK for the past 10 years and we now hold dual citizenship (SA and UK). I have wanted to move to Aus for some time now, back to the sun and sea. And now that we obtained Aus immi visas through SA state sponsorship we will be heading out there to live in mid 2011.Make no mistake, our lives here are very easy, we make quite a bit of money and we travel a lot (Aus, Singapore, Hong Kong, Greece and and an extensive USA roadtrip all in 2010), we own a lovely house and have many mates (UK and Saffas), access to SA shops, and we feel at home here. Life in the UK is also quite inexpensive and getting things done is VERY easy.Yes the weather is crap most of the time, but for 3 months of the year London is just the best city on earth (and to be honest the weather is not all that crap - we complain, but there are many places with far worse weather).BUT having been to Aus (incl Adelaide), we find it so much like SA, and we would like nothing more than to go home. But as we cant (I will not live in a place where Malema gets away with the sh1te he does), Aus seems like a good second choice. My problem is that life in Aus seems quite a challenge. It seems VERY expensive, there is less work security there compared to the UK, and deal with life's general difficulties such as bank charges you simply do not have to worry about over here in the UK. I am however sure everyone has second thoughts when reality kicks in. Has any other Saffas moved to Adelaide (or even Aus in general) from the UK? Pls Gimme your thougts :-) Thanks mense!!Et Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
