Wow! That was very brave of you and your wife Dimitri.
I'm afraid I arrived in Perth with something a little bigger than a suitcase... it was a sea container!
But I did come by myself... but I was coming to somebody!
I met my husband first via the Internet. (Yes kids it does happen in this day and age! LOL)
We knew each other for several years as friends. We chatted, spoke via phone, saw each other via web cam, etc. until I finally made a holiday trip to Australia and we met face to face for the first time.
He was just as he was from a distance and I'm afraid we just knew it was going to happen.
He came to Canada for a visit after that.
I went back to Australia again. God all that travel was getting expensive!!
Then he asked me to marry him and I said .... ummmm ummmmm YES!
So after that it was all down/up hill from there!!!
We decided to live in Australia mainly because it's winter weather is kinder to people starting to get on in years, he had a job here, etc.
So here I am! Married to a Pommy Aussie, I'm now a Permanent Resident, I've got a great part time permanent job and we are happy to just be together and alive!!
There is so much more but I won't bore you.
