South Africans In Houston

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

We (Me, wife, and the Scottish Terrier) moved to Houston 2 weeks ago and would like to make contact with other South Africans. We are in our thirties and don't know anyone here. It would give comfort to meet others that have made Houston their new home.

 

Let us know where you all are hiding!

We are planning to move to Houston as well, if all goes well with our interview for our visa in March. We plan to make the big move in June!

 

 

Are you settling in well? Do you like Houston so far??

 

:rolleyes:

Hi Tami,

 

We moved from England to Houston. Our experiences so far :

 

- Everyone is really, really friendly here and helpful

- Opening bank accounts were easy

- Finding a house to rent was easy but most landlords only wanted people that were in employment. We managed to find a house to lease but had to put down a large deposit.

- Houses are huge in the suburbs

- Only just started job hunting so can't comment much on this yet.

- Cars are expensive, have very high mileages, and car insurance is expensive.

- There are ALOT of SUV's on the road

- We have not met any South Africans yet

- People here love our accents

 

Yes we enjoy Houston so far. But we will love it even more if/when we get jobs. The move here has been a real financial drain, but if all goes to plan, then it should be all good.

 

Make sure you have all your paperwork for that interview!
