Re: Single guy in London or Melbourne - which would let me save more?

I've been giving this a lot more thought and, together with the fact that it seems that Tier 2 sponsorship is a 1 in a million shot - literally, it doesn't make sense not to take advantage of the...

Re: Single guy in London or Melbourne - which would let me save more?

She doesn't really want to move from SA, so the UK route would be a win/win, other than us missing each other of course. I'd get UK citizenship over time and then see how things turn out from there....

Re: Single guy in London or Melbourne - which would let me save more?

I'm very aware of time running out. It's why I've made the decision to act now - the universe is pushing me to make it happen :fingerscrossed:

Re: Best area in SE to rent with four dogs
