    I'm Writing You From Oz =)

    I joined this group while I was still in Italy, dreaming about how I'd come here and start a new life and well....I did! I can't say that it wasn't hard, preparing for such a thing is hard, you not sure what you'll find there, you're not sure of anything and the anxiety is...

    See Ya Later

    One day, I am just going to sell all my sh*t, buy a plane ticket, and just move to Australia.  I still have to wait a few years until I retire, but instead of retiring to some state for "snow birds" like Arizona or Florida I am going to move to Australia. ...

    How Much Should I Bring With Me

    How much money (US dollars) do you think would be sufficient to have at my disposal when I move to Australia to start my life over?  I know that a one way plane ticket will cost me about $2000... but really, how much do you think it would cost to start a new life?
