[QUOTE=maka paka;7514230][SIZE="3"]It'll be the best thing you've ever done hands down.




Hello maka paka - can i ask why Brisbane was so miserable for you for the two years you were here?

I ask because i wanna go back to Scotland and it's becoming a daily obsession for me now!

HOw did it feel to finally land at Glasgow airport (if in fact it was Glasgow!)

Sorry for all the nosey questions

Hi scottishcelts,
I didn't think Brisbane is as good as some people make out,in fact it was the most dull boring place I have ever been.
I hated the sport(Rugby,Cricket...Pish!!),the crazy early start time of work,the way you have to drive everywhere,the crackpot drivers,crappy V8 clapped out cars,the way the Aussies were overly enthusiastic about cars,fishing,barbies!!

The food was under par,curries were terrible,it was pitch black by 6-7 o'clock all year round.
I suppose I was out my comfort zone and I missed too many things about Britain.
When I arrived back in Glasgow it was great..Seeing friends and family again and getting back into the swing of things didn't take long at all.
I have never looked back and I don't miss anything significant about Oz at all.
I'm one happy bunny,and If you have the same feelings as me,then you will also love it when you get back,If your coming back that is.
There is no place like Scotland,In my opinion!!

Oven tomorrow (after the cake fiasco!), bathroom, more ironing. Inspection Friday (stand by your beds!!!) into town to collect bond money. Farewells from Saturday through to Monday, packers Tuesday and Wednesday, fly to Sydney on Thursday for a few days (surprise for Ruby, who's wanted to go since the day she saw Nemo!) from Sydney to home on Sunday, arrive home Monday, barbeque at me mates house Monday PM (yes, of course I can do it!), birthday Friday, dead from there on in!!!!!

Dunno whether I'm ring tapped or boared at the mo!

Good luck on your return. It's much better here!

My feelings exactly! We are thinking on going home around Feb - that's if we can get the house sold with the impending recession here. House purchases/sales haven't yet been affected and are still selling like hot cakes, so hopefully will continue through to after xmas!

Australia is so overrated and despite doing 2 years of research, nothing can prepare anyone for what's in store! I suppose that's why people swear by a reccie trip - we never done one, just arrived!

I am soooooooooooo jealous. When i was back in scotland a couple of months ago , it was fantastic, getting off at glasgow airport and seeing all the scottish flags everywhere and the guy at customs saying 'how ya doin', instead of the how you going, are you having a good day pish, i wish they would all shut the f up.

I must admit i spent most of my time shopping, eating , drinking and in the pub It was fab seeing rellies, but honestly it was most fab just being home.

good luck maka paka and let us know how things turn out

It could mean 3 go mad in Adelaide. Meaning they are having a ball raving, drinking and whatever. I like Adelaide. I was their for 6-months. I loved going up to the winneries, there is a fantastic drive up their outside Adelaide.

Yes it could have meant they are having a ball, but in this case i think they were going nuts with boredom lol.
I felt the same in Perth, i was brain dead. Maybe Sydney was the place for me, i'll never know.
