We are having a great time with our dear friends Tony and Jessica Perez as we tour around the city of Newcastle today. We inquired about rental properties, have been driving around the different neighborhoods and also found out great news about job opportunities in the area. The people are SO FRIENDLY and have been stopping to talk to us everywhere we had questions.
We have found out that the mining industry is booming here. Rental vacancies are low (up to 80 people can be applying for one house at any given time so once we are ready to find a place, we will have to act quickly), and the job market is amazing. The city is thriving and everyone we have talked to seems to love it here.
Check out some pictures we took at the beach:
