Ira Savitri, University College London (Australia)/Alison and Steve Caddick (Ipswich)

Alison and Steve Caddick were very excited about their plan to move their family to Australia from the United Kingdom.

But not all went to plan!

And it was a good thing that they had lots of determination and inventive thinking to counteract many of the financial mishaps and hurdles they encountered along the way. Mishaps, such as buying airlines tickets with a credit card, that by the time of their departure was out of date and had been discarded, but which they were required to present at the airport!
