Hey

Just joined after being here on the gold coast for 4 years and feeling so isolated.

Hello Tracy...it's nice to meet you. Welcome to BE.

I'm sorry you're feeling isolated...many of us including myself know exactly what you mean. The good news is you've found our little expat community.

If you want to chat to people in Australia click here and it will take you to BE's Australia forums. We have many members living on the Gold Coast...you may make some real life friends. You may also be interested in joining in the banter in our Moving Back To The UK Forum. This is the forum where many homesick expats living in Australia hang out.

So make yourself a cuppa...make yourself comfortable and join in.

Please don't feel isoloted .... that's why BE is here. Started as a hobby 10 years ago to connect expats like yourself who sometimes feel a little adrift abroad.

We've got loads of members who've had good times, bad times, happy times, sad times, scary times and fun times. So I'm sure that you will be able to connect with other people who know exactly what you are going through.

I hope you enjoy your time with us and please give me a nudge if you have any site questions.

Sue

Howdy, I'm going to go out on a limb a bit and suggest joining a sporting club.

I joined a cricket side almost immediately after I landed, the best thing I've done from a social point of view (apart from marrying the wife, obviously).

I get to have my Britishness AND my lack of sporting talent mocked every fortnight
