An Expat Talks about Moving to
What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.
Wish we brought:
1) relatives and friends
2) international newspapers
3) better choice of clothing
Wish we left at home:
2) boxes photos
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
Look for an area convenient for your work and lifestyle. In Melbourne there's lots to choose from on both sides of the Yarra.
What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?
Four-bedroom detached house. Fairly typical of expats here.
How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?
Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?
Much higher housing costs here. Figure around $1000 per week. It will obviously be less if you don't need such a big place.
