    Hi Cal thanks for your reply we are currently looking at broad beach waters and coombabah for a holiday letting, then look for a long term rental once we arrive .We are coming on a PR visa without jobs so where we settle will be determined by this.So glad to hear that you are enjoying life in Oz, we expect it to be very hard going but we are determined to make it work for us. Nearly there now and very excited :)

    Hello beddy,

    Thanks Ragdoll we are currently looking at flights for the 20th August and would love to take you up on the offer to meet up when we arrive . My 18year old daughter has just finished her A levels and as yet does not know what career path to take . She has a large circle of friends here and is always out and about so she is looking to maybe go to college or uni to meet friends her own age .It would be brill for her to meet your son and was wondering if he uses the social network face book.

    thanks so much for your reply Cal2 I will contact you when we arrive .As yet we do not know where abouts we will be initially staying in the Gold coast but we are willing to travel any where in the Gold Coast for meet ups. We are very excited about our move and would love to meet with fellow Brits to hear about their experiences of settling in Australia

    thank you soo much Ragdoll for your reply . It would be very much appreciated if you could forward both yours and your sons facebook details. Although we are excited for our move we are also feeling very apprehensive, and it is a comfort to learn that members of LIQ are here for support .
