About this title:

Synopsis: A collection of short, personal experiences that Vicky Gray and her family encountered during the first year of their new life Down Under. In addition to entertaining diary entries, inspirational stories from other expats, top tips and vital resources, the book is crammed full of well-researched information on everything you need to know to survive and thrive during your first year in Australia. Inside you will learn: How to get into Australia, step by step What stuff you definitely need to take with you The ins and outs of taking your pets All you need to know about banks How the school system works - from daycare up How to use the healthcare system How to get a job - and pay tax! How to rent or buy property Why it's easy to live in Oz and much more as Ben Southall, winner of Best Job in the World says: "a superb guide to everything a Pom needs to know about this huge island.'

From the Author: I have come across this quote a couple of times since I started writing this book, I thought it so appropriate: "No matter where you go, there you are."

If you found you were unhappy with certain situations in the UK, you'll probably find that you will still have matters arising in Oz that you aren't happy with. Somehow though, problems always seem to feel better in the sunshine, unless you have photosensitivity of course.

What I am trying to say, in a very English roundabout way; is be realistic about your Aussie adventure. Try not to start off by becoming a whinging Pom; by comparing everything to Back Home and try and embrace Australia for what it really is, Australia.

I'll leave you with this last story - it happened just a few months ago.

I had been walking along the beautiful coastal boardwalk, by the sea near our home. I got chatting to a fellow Brit along the way, who told me he had experienced many problems settling in when he first arrived several years ago. So I asked him the big question: had he ever seriously thought about moving back to the UK?

He paused for a moment with his head down; then breathed in a long, deep lungful of air, opened his arms wide as if to fully behold the glorious beach in front of us, and said, "I'd rather gnaw my own leg off."

I rest my case.
