Series in which families try out life overseas. A mum with ME hopes Australia will improve her health and family life, so the family spends a week living in Adelaide.
After a week spent living in Australia, a family face the ultimate decision – should they leave everything and everyone they love in the UK to start a new life on the other side of the world?
Mum Vicky has suffered from ME – or chronic fatigue syndrome – for years, but her condition deteriorated dramatically six years ago. As a result, husband Gavin has been left to juggle work with looking after the couple’s children.
Now Vicky is desperate to get her life back and become the mum she dreams of being. Doctors have told her living in a warmer climate than the UK’s could improve her health, leading the family to investigate moving to Australia.
With none of the family having visited before, however, Gavin feels it is just too big a leap. The O’Connors spend a week living in Adelaide to see if Gavin’s work and financial concerns can be addressed and if the country could give Vicky her independence back.
