Jump Down Under: Trues Stories of Relocating to Australia

Iain Ayres

Many dream of a life Down Under. After all, who wouldn't want to exchange a life of grey skies and ready meals for one of spontaneous barbies laden with fresh seafood under a never-ending blue sky?

Author Iain Ayres did just that and has now built a business inspiring others to do the same. Jump Down Under is exactly the book he wishes he'd been able to read before he took a leap of faith and moved to Australia.

This book tells it how it is. The reality of making the move, telling the family, settling in and, most importantly, how to get that coveted visa! With the emphasis on first-hand accounts rather than endless to do lists, Ayres provides the reader with a snapshot of the pre-decision, pre-departure, arrival and settling in process told by people who have been there, done that and now got the (probably Fosters XXXX) tee shirt. After hours of interviewing men and women, husbands and wives, singles, the young and not so young, this is the only book of its kind and fills a very real gap in the market.

All the practical stuff and vital information is there too, of course. This is the definitive must-read.

Excerpt:

Author: Iain Ayres

Iain Ayres has travelled the world a number of times and now loves his chosen life in Sydney. As well as being a successful IT executive, Iain supports people who are relocating to Australia through various forums and internet websites, including www.jumpdownunder.com; www.migrationagentreviews.com; and his Facebook page “Jump Down Under”. Iain has made the unusual move (literally) of relocating to Australia twice. The first time he decided to give it a go in Melbourne after backpacking around Australia, but returned to the UK 2 years later due to work commitments. More recently he moved to Sydney with his partner – this time for good. "So I have twice the experience of moving to Australia than most people," he says.
