"Congratulations, we'd like to offer you the job." Words that are welcome any time you're applying for a new job - yet when those words were said to me a few months ago they had a extra significance, it meant we were moving to Sydney.

Ready for departure

As 2014 dawned and with our work visas approved, tickets booked and our house packed up ready for rental Angie and I will depart from Manchester airport at the end of February.

Over the coming months we'll need to adapt to our new lifestyle including finding ourselves somewhere to live, learning our way around the city and meeting new people.

It's all very exciting and scary at the same time.

Follow our journey

As we set of for our new adventure we'd love you to follow us along our way.

We'd also love to hear your advice if you live in Sydney or have visited in the past. Where are the best areas to live? What's the cheapest way to get around? Woolworths or Coles?
