Hi,

Many of our friends either live in Australia or will be moving there. But we have opted for Adelaide (due to a number of reasons). We will probably move out there in early-ish 2011 from the UK, but we are just concerned about feeling lonely out there, as we know absolute no-one in Adelaide. We have been there before on holiday and found the people generally very friendly. But how difficult was it for those already there (maybe in a similar boat) to make friends?

My wife and I are both 30's with no kids. So meeting other parents will not be an option as a way to make friends (kids will come later :-)

Thanks,

Hi Ettiene,

My husband and I are both in our early 30s and also do not have children yet. We have been in Adelaide for just over 2 months and to be honest we have not done a lot of socialising (hubby has been working every weekend and we are still "settling in")

People are very friendly, and we know a few South Africans that have moved over that we have been in contact with, but think it takes time for everyone to get into a routine etc.

Still have days when we get homesick for a braai and watchng rugby with friends! Adelaide has a bit of everything and coming from East London, it has been awesome to see how many awesome bands etc some to Adelaide!

Good luck with the move!

Another thing, Adelaide is spread out. It takes at least an hour driving from the East (mountain) to the West (sea). Visiting and finding new friends will be more likely to be closer to home.

Hi Etienne

Don't worry, we are starting a monthly SA get together, so you will make friends in the first month. Just send me your details once you get here !
