Been a very long time since I posted.... And my life and plans are very different now, but at least my future is looking bright?

Long story short... After my husband and I got our SS visa in 2012, did our validation trip the same year, came back to SA ... He decided to check out of our 12 year marriage. We eventually divorced, and after much therapy, throwing myself into work, I've decided to make the move to Canberra - yes, all on my own and I'm very excited about the possibilities my future holds! I don't have any children, and my cats in SA are going to a good home.

I arrive in Canberra on 25 November! My container should arrive second half of December. I already have some work prospects, my checklist for the move is being slowly ticked off, and I'm feeling very optimistic about things.

So I do actually have a question for the Canberries already there ?.... I heard from the Welcome to Canberra team that they don't do airport pick-ups anymore (granted, it has been a long time since I last checked on their services...).

If I arrive on a Tuesday night at the airport, will the taxis still be there? Is it better to prearrange transport?

Thanks, and looking forward to sharing more of my journey ?

Welcome back and good on ya for tackling this alone. :ilikeit: It's tough enough doing it in the first place, I couldn't imagine doing it alone.

Well done Candice, you are a brave woman and I admire you for that. I trust and pray that Canberra will be everything that you wished for in a new beginning.

I am pretty sure that the taxis will still be there, they are around until the last flight comes in, but I will leave it to those living in Canberra to answer for you.

Don't worry, there are Taxis at all major Aus Airports until late at night. Plenty of business travellers in Canberra who need to catch taxis from the airport.
