Living in New Zealand. Why (Some) Immigrants Can’t Settle

We have been living in New Zealand for twelve years.

Living in New Zealand (As an Expat)

In this podcast episode (which also has a video to watch should you so wish!), we explored 3 (very similar) things that New Zealand and America share a love for!

My family and I have been living in New Zealand twelve years ago from the UK and it was the BEST thing we ever did.

Of course, as with any country, there are pros and cons of living in New Zealand here, but in general, the New Zealand food is divine and the scenery is to die for and the kiwi people are super welcoming.
