Background; I'm Paul 33, originally from Stoke on Trent now living in City Center Manchester with Sharon 35, again from Stoke, we've lived happily in Manchester for 6 yrs and been together for 14.
We love traveling, have a VW campervan and have been to loads of places in the UK & Europe and a few further afield, but we've always had a desire to leave the UK for a long time and this year we've finally taken the plunge and applied for permanent visas to live in South Australia. So the plan is to put our UK life on hold, travel as much as possible overland to OZ from the UK, spend a few years in South Australia and see if the other side of the world is for us.
At the time of writing we have been excepted on principal for our South Australia visa, its taken nearly six months so far, just have to go through the red tape now and hopefully we'll be off by the end of the year.
I hope our little story will be of interest to some and maybe one day inspire someone else to follow our lead (assuming we make it!)
