Dreaming Down Under: Your practical guide to creating a new life in Australia (Paperback)
Have you been dreaming of a new life Down Under? Of course you have - that's why you picked up this book
Swapping those grey skies, the constant drizzle and the cold British winters for the all-year-round sunshine, endless beaches and barbies - sounds perfect, doesn't it?
Claire Strodder dreamt of a life Down Under, and made the life-changing move to Australia with her now-husband in 2013 - but the move wasn't as perfect as she thought it would be.
In Dreaming Down Under Claire shares her story and unique experiences of what it is really like to move to the other side of the world, and how
to make it through to the other side.
Dreaming Down Under uncovers the harsh but wonderful realities of making such a life-changing decision, including:
- planning the move
- leaving the UK
- moving with children
- arriving and settling in Australia
- integrating and settling into the Australian community and way of life.
Claire captures the mass of conflicting emotions, relationship struggles and the often unexpected real-life strains of creating this new life. And as well as sharing her own experiences, Claire has practical tips and checklists that will help you make your Aussie dream become a reality.
After eight years living Down Under and despite life in Australia not being quite what she expected, Claire is now living her dream as an Aussie citizen, and with the practical advice and help in Dreaming Down Under you can too.
