I think anyone who moves to another country on their own is very brave. Me and the Bloke have both said we couldnt do it without each other.

I hope you meet lots of fab people on your travels!!!

I'm not looking forward to be alone. I couldn't live on my in Oxford for three weeks, living half-way across the world on my own with people I don't know for a few months is going to be a bigger challenge, but needless to say I need to grow up at some point!

Think of it as a great opportunity... I came over to Australia on my own (already had some family migrated over previously) and am now engaged to a beautiful lass I met over here... This has all been within the first year of having arrived..

If you can make the most of being un-encumbered to go out and meet people and travel around at the weekends. There are a lot of friendly people out here.

good luck

Alex

Hi all,

On my own and looking forward to it.

I see it as a chance that some don't get as a family.

Look around OZ with open eyes, and clear mind, not constantly tring to justify your choices to someone maybe not 100% with you, if you know what I mean ??

Good luck to everyone, especially on this thread.

Hi Mickey,

Made friends already !!

Look in the UK meet ups at Cambridgshire thread.

We are hoping to plan a meet up in the near future, and it's not too far for you I suppose ??

Regards,

Alan.
