Hi to all.
I am 33 years old and live in Saskatchewan/Canada together with my family (wife and two kids,both boys).We have moved to Canada from Germany four years ago.
I would have preferred to move to Australia (it´s cold here in the wintertime and winter are long!)but my wife was turned off by "poisonous animals"naja...
So,I hope to learn a lot about Australia and might get a chance to visit it in the future

Welcome to the forum.

Snakes ::() What we have snakes, now they tell me.
All those years barefoot in the scrub.
I would be more worried about the Koala,s they stink when they pee on you. :lol:
The 6 and a half meter lizards up north are another story.

Hi G.

I migrated her from Belgium 13 years ago. I never was particularly scared of creepy crawlers or other animals, but it was a bit of an adjustment to suddenly have to watch out for snakes when walking through the long grass or spiders when you are rummaging in the garage.

But you get used to it so quickly, I found. The ones that took hardest to get used to were the flies actually. But even they hardly annoy me anymore (and I always carry insect repellent in the car now!).

We are strafed by mosquitoes here.They are so thick and present,they call them "prairie birds"...yak.Otherwise,it´s not too bad (too bloody cold)even those rattlers are coming closer as it seems.Coyotes are becoming a great problem,they seem to adapt to life with humans all too well and so they spread like a wildfire.
I wish my wife would have been more open to my arguments regarding Australia,I really feel I missed out on it...maybe we will move (a last time),but the problem is that it´s not like moving from town to town....

It's a pity you could not have visited here for a holiday G.....might have made a better impression on your wife.

It's a bit disappointing that she made such a hard and fast decision without some real information about our wonderful country.

I agree and all that I ever heard about Australia was positive...for her,well..she is a little too afraid,too easy to get turned of from an idea.It was already hard to convince her to come to Canada.
The flight to Australia is a bit of a turn down as well,it´s around 40 hours from Germany,a well,we see how things look in a few years and ones I get some more insider-info's (AH! ;) that´s where that comes from...)

Well I think you should plan a holiday to Au G and I've no doubt we would all welcome you.

We'll make it our personal goal to change your wife's view on Au....ha,ha.
