gavinpetoperth Posted September 19, 2010 Report Share Posted September 19, 2010 This past week whilst our household goods were being packed and crated, the reality of our move started setting in for the first time. My kids are especially excited, but my wife and I obviously still have lingering concerns - after all, we have made this great decision to move to Australia without ever having set foot there. Talk about a giant leap of faith. Thank goodness for this forum and its members, who have provided excellent advice and many reassurances. That is why we read the negative posts on this forum very carefully, and fortunately the positive posts way supercede the negative.My new employer in Perth has also done a great job in making the transition smooth for us. Thay have paid for everything, from medicals, to visa applications, air tickets, shipping of our container, to the costs of our first month in a hotel. They have even appointed a consultant to find a house and schools for us, and have given me access to a tax expert for my first six months. That has created a lot of trust from my side and they can be assured of my loyalty. Will be tough though to fit into a large consultancy after having worked on my own for 17 years.Camping in our empty house is not much fun whilst we wait for our flight to Johannesburg on Tuesday and then on to Perth on Thursday evening. Amazing how the time sped by while trying to organise everthing in time, and how the time now drags by as we wait for our flights. Now that we sit idle, ones mind tends to work overtime, reviewing the pros and cons of the whole move. But at this stage it is too late to get off this runaway train we are on................G Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
