Congrats, Meghan!

 

Yay! I told you it was going to be just fine wink.gif

 

We're currently busy organizing a trip to NYC to activate our Visas, but it's all starting to feel rather surreal.

Hard to believe that it's basically all systems go, and we have no idea how/when to even break the news to our friends and work colleagues, as we have played our cards so close to our chest for almost a year now to avoid any disappointment should our application have failed. Now that it's upon us, breaking the news seems harder than EVER...

 

Anyhooo, all the best with the rest of your preparations and good luck with the next phase of your great adventure!

Yahooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Interview is over, walked out with 6 passports and 6 envelopes and hour and half after our interview was completed.

 

They did not even take all the papers we prepared to prove financial support, amazing!

Let the journey begin now, we have also not told many people, our community is going to be shocked...

Well done, JodieandKie + family!

 

They REALLY seem to be turning around the Visas quickly nowadays.

Has it always been this quick, or has the newer online system of entry, selection and processing streamlined the process that much?

 

Let us know how it works out for you. We should totally create a 'Class of 2012' thread and have a reunion in five years time ;)

We are also organising a trip to NYC in September, only problem is the US Open is going in New York so tickets are a little pricey. Is there where you want to settle down??

Well done, the ride isn't over. We are waiting for our house to sell, which is extremely frustrating then we are out of here. Best of luck for the future.

Hey guys...

 

 

 

This is real cool... So as the class of 2012, let us keep up supporting one another on this journey ahead.

 

For flights, visit www.hipmunk.com. They give a summary of all the airlines as their prices, there is also a price graph that tells you which days of the particular month is cheaper. If you only want to ship some boxes or so, try seven seas worldwide shipping, a few of our friends used it. They deliver the boxes to your home and collect again. I plan to take 15 large boxes, 15 standard boxes, a bicycle boxed and guitar in hardcase... all is less than R27 000. Which is not that bad.

I am going to get quotes from the IOM (international organisatin for migration) and see if they have better prices with more luggage allowance. Will keep you posted.

 

 

 

We are going to US in July for 2 weeks to finalise a few things and plan to leave with the kids at thye end of October.
