For most families, moving to another country
is a once-in-a-lifetime event,
but if you'd tried it before and your dream hadn't worked out,
would you be willing to risk everything again, especially if your partner didn't share your dream?
James Watt is desperate to return to the country he fell for.
I loved it. I absolutely loved the water, the lifestyle.
I loved being outdoors. I loved the easy-going nature of people.
But fiancee Farah can't bear to leave her life behind.
I just don't think that...
..you can replace your friends and your family for...for the sunshine.
A week in Australia exploring the possibilities could tear them apart.
It's not for me.
Surrounded by thousands of miles of beaches,
covered in unspoilt landscapes and renowned for its climate,
Australia is the biggest lure for Brits looking for a new life,
but all too often, the reality doesn't match the dream
and nearly a third of all new arrivals give up and return home.
Over the next seven days, the Watt family will experience the reality
of everyday life in Australia, then they'll face a critical choice -
whether to stay in the UK or to make the move for good.
The first step for the Watts involves crossing three continents,
travelling over 10,000 miles.
It's a gruelling experience, even for someone who's done it before.
I'd kind of forgotten in the ten years how long that flight is.
I hardly slept and I feel like death warmed up right now.
I hated it. I've never sat so still for so long.
I found it incredibly difficult.
Maybe it's an age thing, because for one person, it was very different.
I actually found it quite nice, the aeroplane.
I did get a decent amount of sleep and luckily, I didn't snore.
Hopefully, the rest of this crucial week will be a positive experience for everyone.
In the UK, Farah, James and 14-year-old Kasim Watt live in Cornwall
in the pretty seaside village of Porthtowan.
They've been together for nine years.
In 2007, they all visited Cornwall and fell in love straight away.
We saw the sunshine, the blue sea.
Just absolutely beautiful and it was a nice little village
that I had always kind of dreamed of when I was younger and I just went, "Why don't we move there?"
Cornwall does grasp me.
It's just got that...
I don't know, it just... it just catches me.
James was like, "No way do I want to move to Cornwall."
At first I was a bit reluctant, but I loved it.
James had a reason for being reluctant about Cornwall. His heart was in Australia.
In 2001, I went out there for a working holiday
and spent a year there and fell in love with the place and I've wanted to go back ever since.
And I loved it.
I absolutely loved the water, the lifestyle.
I loved being outdoors. I loved the easy-going nature of people.
You could walk down the street and everyone will say "hello" to you.
I tried that in England and everyone thought I was weird.
But over a decade later, James is still drawn towards the life Australia could offer.
I like it warm. I like to be in my shorts all year round.
I don't like dodging the rain.
I don't like the cold. I can't stand it.
He believes emigrating would give them all the chance to live the active outdoor lifestyle they love.
-It's nice to be down the beach, but the weather here is, um...
You've got this lovely view that you can't see.
If it's always hot, you get bored of it,
whereas at least here in England, you get different...
-You get the change...
-But you get a varied change of hot though, don't you?
We get slightly mild and damp in the summer and cold in the winter.
It's not cold. You've not got your hat and... You've got your gloves on.
And I'm freezing. So I'm quite happy to go somewhere warm.
Now James wants to give Australia a try, but he still has to convince Farah and Kasim.
I really want to go. I had a feeling of "this is the place I want to be".
-If you feel like your heart's somewhere, you want to go.
-Yeah, mine's here in England.
'I don't know if I'd want to go somewhere that is so far from everybody else.'
This is far enough.
This is like being on the other side of the world...for me.
The Watts have tried to achieve James's dream closer to home.
Two years ago, they moved abroad. Unfortunately, it didn't work out.
We moved to Malta to see if we could get a similar experience to Australia,
as in warmth and the sea and things like that, but closer to home.
But unfortunately, that didn't work out.
Kas's schooling didn't help. I found it difficult with work.
Farah enjoyed her work there, but she didn't like the place very much.
We moved over to Malta and I just didn't like it.
I missed tons of people back here, so I was kind of a bit sad.
Farah has achieved the life she wants in Cornwall and she doesn't want to give it all up.
It's leaving everybody else behind.
Maybe when I was younger, I didn't think about those kind of things.
You just get up and you go, whereas now that I'm older,
you kind of want your comforts and my friends and my family are my comforts.
And it's very hard to build those kind of friendships.
With so many doubts about the move, everything is at stake.
I'm hoping it's everything I remember it to be, but there is a chance that it isn't.
We need to decide if we're going to continue this relationship. That's what it boils down to.
That if James thoroughly enjoys Australia, you could make that choice.
And...if I want to be in England, closer to...
..closer to the people that I love, then that's what I have to do.
It's something that we have to decide.
I just don't think that...
you can replace your friends and your family for...for the sunshine.
You're just moving a bit further away. You're not replacing anyone.
We'll have to see.
The Watts face a huge decision.
James is convinced Australia can offer his family a better life,
but Farah knows giving up the one they have will be even tougher the second time around.
With their family's future at stake, one of them could be facing heartbreak.
During that time, they'll be sampling everything Brisbane has to offer.
It's a thriving city, renowned for its golden beaches and vibrant cultural life,
just what James is looking for.
Their home for the trial week is in the Oyster Point area.
This three-bedroom property should give them a good idea
about what they could expect from Australian houses.
-Oh, I like this.
Oh, wow! I love the colours.
-Right, OK. I'm not sure about... It's a bit blue for my taste.
-I love it. I love it.
-It's more of a sea look, really.
-Yeah, I like that.
It's a nice size.
-Yeah, compared to the size of our house, it's like a mansion, isn't it?
Oh, a curved staircase!
Yeah. Oh, wow!
Do you know? It's quite a big house.
It's a lot bigger than you think, yeah.
-This is really nice.
-It is good, yeah.
This house is just the start James wanted,
but Farah is not going to be won over that easily.
I think there are just too many houses. I don't know...
-You like to be a hermit?
-Yes. JAMES LAUGHS
Their entire future is riding on this week
and James is fully aware it could all be based on a holiday fantasy.
I've got memories from ten years ago that were great and ever since then, I've wanted to come back,
but now, is it the same as it was before?
The only reason I'm considering this move
is because this is something that you've always wanted.
I can't say, "Yes, I'd like to move here."
In the UK, the Watts rent this modest, two-bedroom cottage in Cornwall.
Situated by the coast, it's a home that gives them everything they need.
I love this house. It's just so quirky.
And they want something simple, but in a good location in Australia, to give them the lifestyle they love.
I'd like a house that's walkable to the beach, has some character.
It doesn't have to be too big or modern. It needs to be a home.
It needs to have a family feel.
I hate the city. I was brought up in the city. I never want to be there.
I love like a little village or a town.
Today, we'll give the Watts a taste of Brisbane's rental market.
We'll show them three options based on what they want from their ideal home and what they can afford.
After seeing for themselves what's on offer, they'll find out how much each house costs.
The first house is in the town of Capalaba.
It's on the outskirts of Brisbane near the coast
and has good transport links for work in the city.
This two-bedroom property is up for rent only a couple of miles from the beach.
Can it get house-hunting off to a flying start?
-It's quite basic, isn't it?
It's a small kitchen, to be fair.
The Watts don't sound too thrilled by this house and James has spotted a very undesirable feature.
-Does it come free with the cockroach, do you think?
-That's not good.
The cockroach problem could be easily solved, but Farah isn't taken with the garden either.
-I don't like the fact that it's all enclosed.
-They have the big fences, so they've got the privacy.
-I don't really need any privacy. I'm quite...
-You're quite friendly.
Perhaps the upstairs can make a better case for this house.
Right, Kas, this is our bedroom.
It's got a balcony.
At last, something positive to talk about. Or did I speak too soon?
James, that bit looks really worn.
-It's not the most secure of things I've ever seen.
-It is as well.
-I'm going back in.
-It's rotten, that bit.
It's going from bad to worse and James has spotted more problems.
-It just looks as if the floor's coming way.
-Look at that. You can push that in.
I don't know if the landlord would sort this stuff out.
Well, technically, they should.
James seems to be grasping at straws.
I don't think this is the Australian dream Kas and Farah had imagined.
-So what do you think, Kas?
-It's quite big, but...
-Do you prefer our house that we've got at the moment or...?
For me, Australia is about the leisure side.
I can put up with a house that's OK. It's not perfect. It's OK to start with.
But we've still not seen the beach.
James might be OK with this house, but could they afford to live here?
How will it sit with their rental budget of around £850?
OK, Kas, are you going to turn it over?
Dun-dun-du-u-un! Put it on...
-Oh, 780 for this?!
Jeez, that's expensive!
It's a lot for the house, but if that's how much they are...
I really don't like the house to pay that.
This house really is a no-go for Farah.
The commute, not being able to be like close to the sea...
For me, that kind of outweighs the price.
It's been a bad start for Australian property.
Hopefully for James, the next house can start moving things in his favour.
It's in the Cleveland area 18 miles from the city centre.
Being right on the coast, it's a desirable location, much more in keeping with their tastes.
Unfortunately, the weather is exactly what James is trying to leave behind in the UK.
-It must be this one.
-This is nice with the white picket fence.
-That's really nice. I like that.
-It's got a veranda, garden.
James is being quick to point out the positives.
Hopefully, this two-bedroom semi won't need too much sales talk.
In you go.
-See what you think, say what you see.
-This is really nice.
-That's cool, that is.
-This is much nicer.
You've got the kitchen here. You can be in the kitchen and you can still see into the lounge.
-It's not cut off. It's not totally open-plan, but...
-I like this.
That definitely sounds like approval, but could they see themselves living here?
-It's got a nice feel to it. It feels like a home.
-I like it.
-It's very light.
-What do you think, Kas?
-I like it. It's nice and it's quite quiet.
-It's not far from the train station if we work in the city.
Have the Watts found their ideal Aussie home?
-It's quite big, a good size.
-Oh, you've got a bath and a shower unit.
-Let's have a look.
I really like this one.
You've got another bedroom in here.
With another full-length mirror.
-Oh, wow, I like that wall!
The Watts are taken by this house,
but could they afford to call it home on a rental budget of around £850?
-I really like the house, so I think it will be expensive.
-You've got expensive taste.
I'm excited about this one.
Oh, no way! That's cheaper than I thought.
-I think it's good.
-You'd stretch to that?
If we could stretch to that, that would be fantastic.
-Paper round is needed.
-You can chip in with a paper round.
This house has really boosted James's hopes of convincing Farah and Kas.
Can the last property make Australia an even more appealing proposition?
Also in Cleveland, it's a larger three-bedroom property.
Just a short walk from the sea, the location should suit them.
Hopefully, the house will too.
-It looks all right, doesn't it?
-I don't know. It's very built up, I think.
-It's really modern.
Let's have a look inside the house.
Farah already sounds uncertain, but James is staying positive.
He knows he has to sell Australian living.
A big, big...sort of living area.
-Oh... It's not very light, is it?
-No, it is a bit dark.
But they've got a courtyard out the back here.
-That's quite nice.
-With some palm trees. That's nice.
Plenty of greenery in the back.
-But then it's quite built up.
-It's not very big, though, in the back yard.
I think that's a perfect size. You can get your table and chairs there.
You can have a barbecue over there. That's fine.
-Where are you going to stick your hot tub?
-You don't need a hot tub. You need a cold tub!
James has Kas on board, but Farah is struggling with the idea of living in such a built-up location.
I don't like it because it's quite dark. It's not for me.
Perhaps the upstairs can show this house in a more favourable light.
-It has a balcony, James.
You could have your breakfast on there. You have the courtyard there and this doubles your outside space.
-I like the balcony.
-I can tell! Do you want to see in the other room?
The large bedroom and brighter feel upstairs have lightened Farah's mood and there's good news for Kas.
-So this would be Kas's room.
-Yeah, with a patio.
-Oh, wow, Kas!
-And this one's got an en-suite.
-This house is starting to appeal a bit more now.
Everyone has been taken by this property, but could they handle living in a built-up area?
Perhaps finding out the price will make that decision for them.
OK, you turn it over.
£1,100 a month.
That would mean stretching themselves well over their budget.
That's a lot of money, though, for like rental properties.
-But think about the house, how big is this house.
If you're having people coming over, it's worth the extra.
It's a pity about the rain.
I think it makes it look quite nice.
Well, despite the weather, Australian properties have given James a ray of hope.
It started badly with the current tenants of the first house.
The second had everything they needed,
just the ticket for James's dream.
The third house set the standards even higher,
although affording it could be a struggle.
So have the Watts seen enough to make them fall for Aussie houses?
After seeing the properties today, it's time to make a vote.
I kind of liked the houses.
-I liked the one with the white picket fence. Very homely.
-Yeah, it was a nice house.
I've not found a house as good as the one that we've got in England.
It needs to be next to the seaside.
The Watts may have liked Aussie houses, but for Farah, there's no place like home.
And finding a property close to the beach will mean paying even higher rental prices
which puts the pressure on both of them to find good work opportunities and salaries in Brisbane.
Farah works part-time teaching English to foreign students and James is a youth worker.
As they could only get a visa on Farah's job,
everything depends on her being able to find suitable employment,
so we've arranged for Farah to visit a language school in Brisbane.
Unfortunately, the journey into the city has reminded her why she lives in the countryside.
Just all the daily hustle and bustle that I do not want in my life.
And if we move here to Australia,
I have to accept that being the visa applicant,
it's got to be something that I've got to take on board and I don't know if I'm willing to do that.
That's not what I'd call a good start to a working day.
She's meeting ex-pat Tom Entwistle who is a languages teacher.
Tom is going to let her help with a lesson. It should be a good chance for Farah to show her skills.
I want to focus on some medical problems today, so illnesses, injuries.
-It should be a nice, communicative activity. Is this the kind of thing you're used to?
When I was in Malta, this is the kind of thing you did and it was the same sort of set-up.
Then they're off into the classroom. As the visa is down to Farah, it's crucial she likes what she sees.
Meanwhile, with Kas looked after by a childminder, James is on his way to find out
about his job prospects. But he knows it's all about Farah.
All the elements on this trip are crucial, but today especially.
If Farah's not happy with work then we don't come.
Everything else can be right, but if she's not happy working, it just won't happen.
So that's the end of it.
He's come to the Child Protection Services to find out what Brisbane could offer him as a youth worker.
-Just take a seat.
-Lovely to meet you. My name's Chris.
-Nice to meet you.
-Come on through.
I noticed on your CV here that you've got some experience in working with children in care
-and providing support work.
-Can you tell me a bit about that?
I worked providing residential care to children in a residential setting.
-So ranging from mainly single-bedded crisis units.
While Chris gets to question James in detail, Farah gets the chance to do the same with Tom
on her prospects.
That was really good. Very similar to my experience in Malta. That's great.
-I find that very comfortable. I'd be quite happy to teach.
-This is something you could do?
What's the kind of wages that I could potentially earn?
I work a 20-hour week and I take home about... 50,000 a year,
which is kind of an average wage in Australia. You're not going to make a fortune, but plenty to live on.
-Let me get this right. 20 hours a week, 50,000.
-A lot better than in England.
That's £32,000 - over double what Farah earns in the UK.
How many schools are there, not only in Brisbane, but just around Australia?
It is a huge industry in Australia.
It's not as big as it was a few years ago. Various changes mean less students are coming now.
How difficult do you think it would be for me, with my qualifications?
-I'm sure there are ways, but you'd find it quite difficult.
-That is a blow.
Despite the promising wages, Farah might struggle to find work
and it could affect the entire move.
If that's the case,
unfortunately, there's absolutely no way that we can get into Australia.
There is work out here.
It's just finding the...
the employer to give me a job.
Across town, James is also finding out just what his job would offer.
-How much do you think I could earn a year?
-With your experience, you'd be Level 5.
-That's 45,000 a year.
-If you were able to get into an AO3 position,
that pay starts at 52,000 a year.
Roughly, that would work out to about £35,000-£40,000 per year.
-That's pretty good. Pretty good.
-That is welcome news.
Even the starting salary would be nearly £8,000 more than James currently earns.
-Is that one big step closer to his dream?
-I'm hoping that
because I can find work that's relatively well paid,
it will take the pressure off her to be the only breadwinner.
And I'm hoping that will help persuade her that we could come here and have a better life.
So after a day of mixed fortunes, how will Farah and James vote when it comes to work?
Well, I really liked the job,
so, um...and the money.
-So that'll be great.
-Fantastic. I'm very happy about that.
-That's the result James wanted,
but Farah has serious worries about where she'd be working.
Australia is so big and what I've seen of it I really don't like at the moment.
That's because you're in the city.
To come somewhere that you don't really want to come is a big sacrifice for you. I know that.
You know, it's whether you're happy with us changing our lifestyle completely.
I don't know if I'm going to sacrifice...
I understand, obviously, this is something that you really want.
Despite a vote for Oz, Farah's still struggling with the positives,
but for James it's all about living the lifestyle he fell in love with 10 years ago.
Showing Kasim and Farah what that means could be vital if he's to win them over.
In the UK, the Watts all lead an active life, making the most of the Cornish countryside.
We thoroughly enjoy the outdoors.
-I love running, cycling...
-Rock climbing you're good at.
All summer, we're down the beach playing around in the water,
-but come October, end of October...
-It's hibernate until spring again.
So today, with a forecast for rain, they've come to spend time at a local climbing centre.
It's one activity they enjoy doing as a family.
-Leap for it, James.
-Do you think he can leap? Like a gazelle?
Well, there's no fear of heights in this family, is there? And, by chance,
Farah has met someone who emigrated from Cornwall. Matt doesn't regret making the move.
-It's warm enough to be swimming in a pair of shorts in winter.
-The sky is as blue as blue can be.
-That's just all appealing.
-You feel like you're on a beach at Newquay in summer. It's heaven.
-I love scuba diving.
-It's some of the best you'll see. You've got the Barrier Reef.
-God, you've been converted!
-You have to do it!
-Stay for six months.
-It's just leaving everybody behind.
-..leaving that lifestyle I've got.
Farah's concerns about moving away from those she loves are on her mind but for James,
despite the weather, this is what Australia's all about.
This is something we've done in the past as a family,
so to see the facilities here on a wet day is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
We've got something to do. Kas was happy, I'm happy, Farah's happy. Thumbs up.
And when the rain has cleared, there's just enough time for a spot of fishing.
The chance to reflect in tranquil surroundings has got James thinking about Farah's heartache.
In Cornwall, she's just felt like it's home. And once you feel that somewhere is home,
it's very difficult for you to want to leave.
I felt 10 years ago that this was home and I've spent that time trying to get back,
so I can understand how she feels.
If Farah doesn't vote to come out here to Australia, or doesn't want to,
-I don't know where that will lead us.
-So when it comes to the lifestyle on offer,
will it be Australia or Cornwall?
We've had a great day today and now it's time to vote.
I thoroughly enjoyed that. The wall was so much better than the UK.
And if I was to work in Brisbane, then it's kind of close.
-We can all go on the weekend and we can...
-It's looking up.
A full house of votes is a huge boost for James's dreams of emigrating,
but with question marks over their finances, this isn't just about proving they could have a life here.
It's about proving they could afford it.
We've drawn up a comparison of costs between how they live in Cornwall and life in Australia.
-Where will their calculations lead them?
-Right, groceries per month. How much?
Mushrooms are way expensive here!
Wow. That's five times more expensive.
-For 500 mils of shampoo.
Jeez, we're going to have to shop around for that or all go round with bald heads.
So that works out as... £554 per month.
£95 more expensive.
And there's another £200 a month rent to add if they use the second property in the calculations.
Can their income make up the difference?
No way! We're going to earn twice the amount of money here, in pounds, than we'd earn in England.
-That's actually really good.
That's a huge leap in salary. So what's the bottom line?
-We've got a surplus...
-Pounds, not even dollars.
-Are you sure we've done this right?
We could save £1,000 a month. Is that more encouraging for you to come out here?
Well, it's really good. I mean, the money is really good. We'll see.
Eh? We'll see. That's a good result.
On paper, these figures do look promising, but have James and Farah really been convinced?
We've done our cost of living and now it's time to vote.
-After finding we'd be richer.
-More money to spend for you.
It looks as if Australia could make financial sense for the Watts after all.
Farah's second vote for Oz is even better news for James.
What could swing the big decision now is finding out if Kasim could be happy there, too.
Two years ago, they tried moving to Malta,
but it didn't go well and the Watts returned to Cornwall.
Kas and James have a very strong bond and it's really nice to see them getting on.
And when we were in Malta, that kind of changed. He wasn't doing what he wanted to do
and his personality changed.
He really didn't get on there at school, to the point where his behaviour was deteriorating
at home, you know. That was a major issue for us. We knew he was happy at school here.
So today Kasim is getting the chance to spend time at a local school.
How he feels about the day is crucial to the entire move.
I'd like you to meet Kas. He's a student from the UK.
"What does half-life mean?" Do you know this stuff?
Basically, in half the life of the object, how much radioactivity it gives off.
Yeah, we've got the questions on the board. Just got to answer them.
Kas certainly seems to be getting to grips with the lesson, even with an anxious mum keeping a close eye.
With the lesson soon over, there's plenty of questions for Kas.
-Do you have yellow buses?
-Oh, the big double ones.
That's in London. We've got one in Cornwall that goes round Truro. That's a tourist bus.
-Do you do a lot of outdoor activities?
-You get to do classes in sports.
One of your classes, three times a week, is a sport.
That's great news for outdoor-loving Kas.
When he meets up with Farah and James, they're keen to find out how he got on.
-How was it? You're smiling.
-Yeah, it was actually quite fun.
The class was nice. It was good. So it was not too bad. It was quite relaxing.
-So if we moved out here, you'd be quite happy to go to school?
-That's really good.
Seeing Kasim happy and making friends in an Aussie school is reassuring for Farah and James,
but Farah's biggest fear has never been that Australia can't offer them a future.
It's about leaving behind the people and places they love.
We've prepared a DVD of messages from family and friends in the UK.
-Could hearing these make moving unthinkable?
-Go for it.
Hiya, James. Hiya, Farah. Hiya, Kas.
I hope you're having a good time.
'Hello. How are you?'
I hope you're enjoying yourselves down there in Australia.
With James and Farah, I don't think you'll ever have a dull moment!
'Farah has been a wonderful friend.'
She's one of these spontaneous, bubbly people that will just go, "Hi! Are you there?
"Shall we go out for a walk? Yay!"
She's a livewire. She's always on the go.
She's bubbly. I call her my little pint pot!
Don't tell her that!
Kas is a very thoughtful person.
He's obviously got lots of friends and hobbies in England.
Being a teenager, it may be the most difficult for him to move.
I do worry about this move that they're making because I'm not sure
that Farah and Kas would... settle there.
They'll miss the country so much.
It'll be difficult for when we do have our family time together at Christmas, holidays, birthdays.
It will be a big part that's missing.
We do have some really good laughs and good times.
I want them to be happy. I really do want them to be happy and to enjoy their life,
but it's...it's so far. It's just so far.
My only grandson is going to the other side of the world. Yes.
I think I'd be heartbroken.
I love you guys. Kas, just decide what you want to do as well. It's all for you as well.
Everyone's got to be happy with the decision.
If you do decide to go there, I'll miss you immensely, but it's your life.
And if it's what you want to do, then I'll be happy for you.
don't think I won't miss you cos I will.
Oh, please, please, think about it.
It's not for me.
-It's just so far, James.
-It's a day.
-It's one day.
-Yes, I know it's one day,
but you're just forgetting how far it is, how regularly we would see them.
-And how often they would come and see us.
-No, I understand the logistics.
But the logistics aren't putting me off from living somewhere that I'd really like to live.
I don't know. I don't know if this is the place for me. So...
Watching their messages was a reminder of just how painful emigrating would be for the Watts.
They know full well what can happen when a move doesn't work out.
So after seeing how much they can gain and lose by moving to Australia,
are the family prepared to risk everything all over again?
This week has been driven by James' dream of a new life in Australia.
Now, as they approach the final vote, there is still a lot to think about.
For some reason, he thinks there's this one magical place
that he'll kind of say to me it's OK to miss all of our friends,
it's OK to miss all our family.
You know, just with this one place.
After watching the videos, our family and friends,
up until that point I think Farah could have voted Australia,
but I think after seeing the video of family and friends,
it really hit her what she'd be leaving behind. That might just nudge it back to England.
Well, I've got my dream. You know, being in Cornwall is my dream.
You know, we're living in a beautiful house, next to the sea,
within walking distance.
I get to go on walks with my friends.
You know, we're only at the end of a phone call.
My mum's probably the hardest person to persuade.
If she doesn't like it, it's no good. If I don't like it, then my mum's not going to like it.
And James just can't do it.
So it's... a bit of a chain reaction, really.
It's really, really difficult. What do I do?
Do I sacrifice everything that I've got over in the UK just to make HIS dream come true?
Can we give this a go?
I don't know.
So with their future on the line, what's the verdict?
After our exciting, interesting week in Australia, it's now time to vote.
-I'm prepared to give it a go.
I'm going to pass out! I did not think you would do that. I thought no chance.
I've had lots to think about.
Seeing Kas today at school, that was kind of a tick for me.
So, yeah, I think that kind of swayed my...
I think Australia got my vote from the start because of the weather, the wildlife, et cetera.
-With everybody else, with all my friends and family and stuff,
I'm sure they can come and visit.
If not, live here.
I'm over the moon. I'm not leaving now until you've got your visa.
There's something about Australia that makes you want to come back.
After plenty of soul-searching, the Watts have chosen to make a new start in Australia,
much to James' delight.
There's still some work for them to do before that life can begin, but we wish them a very happy future.
