7 Things You WON’T Miss When You Move To New Zealand

7 Things You WON’T Miss When You Move To New Zealand

If you are thinking of moving to New Zealand from the UK (or elsewhere for that matter) and are concerned about a few things you may miss, you are going to really LOVE this show!

2021 What a Year… Behind The Scenes With Liz & Brian

2021 What a Year… Behind The Scenes With Liz & Brian

This is the last podcast of the year and we wanted to make it personal. So here we are! Behind the Scenes. In the bedroom. 

To be honest, we could have made this podcast very easy. We could have just sat there and said thank you over and over again. That would have summed up our feelings for you right now. But because we like to natter over cherries we also go into the things that scared us the most this year, how we tackled them and where we are now.

Wherever you are in the world Brian and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you. So very, very much. Without you, we wouldn’t keep going. You are a star. You are amazing.

Join Brian and I talk as we talk about what Taranaki is REALLY like,

Lame or Lush? The Truth About New Zealand Food

Lame or Lush? The Truth About New Zealand Food

New Zealand food. Not exactly the most talked about cuisine in the world.

Why? Is it because the kiwis are ashamed of their national nosh or are they hiding something from the rest of the world? 

When we made our move to New Zealand from the UK twelve years ago, I wasn’t expecting much in the way of food. Maybe a few lamb chops and a packet of butter. A glass of milk at a push.

How wrong I was…
