When we were in Switzerland over the last Christmas Holidays, Bill was interviewed on the radio about living in Australia. After the program, Bill was contacted by Peter, who wanted to migrate to Oz and asked us many questions. When Peter and his family arrived in Brisbane we offered to help them get adjusted. They rented an apartment on the Gold Coast and their son Jan started school at Southport. He quickly learnt English. Peter and Yolande spoke English already.
Peter and Jan loved it here in Australia but Yolande found it hard to adjust to the different way of life, the different food and customs. In fact she was very homesick. Eventually, they packed up and went back to Switzerland for the benefit of Yolande's health. We remained in touch for many years afterwards.
