I looked after and lived with this beautiful little girl for a year. She changed my life in so many ways and I came back home with friends for life. She was an angel to look after and a pleasure to be around. She made my year and one I will never forget. She’s like a little sister to me and I miss her crazy amounts! I am completely torn between two countries on opposite sides of the world! – Anna Whittle
My dad is my best friend, and when I got a job in the UK he was the most supportive. However neither of us have enough money to visit one another. Skype only can help for so long before you start to miss his hugs – Lisa Fitzgerald
Kimberley and I met in England, where we worked as Au Pairs. Kim came all the way from Australia and I from Sweden. We became so good friends that we decidied to move to Edinburgh together, until her visa expired, 2 years later and she had to go back to Australia. I haven’t seen her in 3 months, but it feels more like 3 years. It would mean the world to me if I could go to Australia and see my best friend again! – Louise Brozinic
Jon was a good friend of mine in my Young farmers days! We’ve always kept in touch when he moved to Australia, but don’t get to see each other very often.
Now we both have families it would be great to get together & party on the beach. Our eldest boys remember each other & would love to see each other again. We have so much to catch up on,& we could celebrate with a beer or two! – Philip Mackay
