Here’s what people are saying about So, you’re moving to Australia?:
“”What a well written book, with humour and good detail. Good that you admit your difficulties and how you coped, and just as important to show that Ian’s side was different. You are spot on with how you’ve addressed the work culture – we’ve experienced the same issues. Having bought guide books to help us move, I wish yours was available then”” – Lucia, Sheffield to Sydney 2009
“”I really enjoyed the book. It’s a very detailed, honest description of life here and you show a very good insight into Australian culture. I also like that you address the emotional aspect of moving and talk about how you and Ian settled at different paces. I think this will be really helpful, wish i’d had it when i arrived.”” Amanda – Nottingham to Sydney 2008
