    G'day i was born in yorkshire and left at the age of 20 to emigrate downunder to Australia. in 1968 and am aged 62. My wife and i are retired and for the past 6 yrs return to tour uk and euro for 4 months . We purchased a Fiat Bessacarr 425 m/home and this is kept in secure storage in Yorkshire. Our oz home was always Sydney but we have retired 2 hrs north to Nelson Bay in Port Stephens n.s.w. So we believe we are very fortunate to live 8 months each yr here and 4 months in uk /euro .

    Hi and welcome to the fun, Perhaps you can answer a question that crops up regularly here. How do you get insurance without a UK place of residence?

    Giday Keith, in 1990 I was offered three months work in Sydney, from NZ, we stayed 10 years, Revesby, inner south west, just! I used to sub for the NRMA, We also had a static in Budgiwhai on the central coast I spent many a happy weekend on that beach, fishing for flathead and leather jacket. We been here since 2000, and are based in Cornwall, which is a lot like NZ in ways, coastline, people, laid back! Is that seafood restaurant "Gelignite Jacks! still going in Port Stephen, had the best Chilli Crab there ever!
    Enjoy your stay and crack a couple of throwdowns for me!

    Hi Keith and welcome,

    Hope you have as much fun here, as we have had Dolphine tripping out of
    Port Stephen, in a real peasouper(Foggy), but what a crack we had with the skipper and the food in town was to die for.
