Thumbs up Why OZ?

Was living and working in the US, and decided we wanted to "get out of our comfort zone" so I got a job transfer to India (working for Google.) After a year we wanted to get back to a place a little more comfortable, but still outside of the US so we asked to transfer to Sydney.

Been here ever since.

I discovered Melbourne, and I fell in love with my husband. Two good reasons to stay in Australia.

As it's easier for me to migrate in Australia than for him to move to France (the language is the first and strong barrier), we naturally decided to settle in Australia.

Come to OZ my friend. Our biggest burdens are deciding what restaurant to eat at next week. You'll love it here and we love you YANKS!

We chose Australia because a good company sponsored my husband.
He went or a trial for almost a month , and he returned with a signed contract.
After a month preparation of giving our requirements, the immigration lawyers lodged our nomination, and after 5 DAYS our visa was granted.
We were so elated!! Now we are busy wrapping all our things , and here we come.

Sunny Skies and Bare-feet living

I first visited Australia about two decades ago when I was just a cadet on an ocean going freight Ship. When I stepped ashore in Brisbane I saw some guys walking bare-feet and entering a Mac-Donald's outlet.

I said to myself "Now ain't that a great uninhibited way to live?"

Also Australia offered the opportunities for out door activities, sunny skies and tremendous potential for starting a new lif. These were all the key ingredients why I decided to move to this great land of 'Milk and Honey' andI am so happy for having done so!

I love Australia because in my opinion it is one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world.
You can find everything: A world metropolis like Sydney & isolated ghost towns in the middle of nowhere, snowy mountains & huge sandy deserts, spooky landscapes in Tasmanie & the world's biggest tropical coral reef. That's just fantastic!!! And I love the people - the Aussies as well.

We moved to Australia from New Zealand.
Even though New Zealand is far prettier than Australia, Australia gives us more job options and better money.

My fiancÚ is in Australia. Initially, we were talking about him coming to the U.S., but the more we thought about it, the more we felt Australia was the place for us to be. He has family there, we definitely need to live near a beach, he has a well established career while I am able to pursue my career choice in either country, and we would much rather raise our son (his stepson) and our future children in Oz vs. USA!

Personally, it doesn't really matter where we live, as long as it's a relatively safe place for our kids and we're all together. Hopefully Australia will be where my family calls home soon!
