If you are thinking about making a new life in New Zealand and you have a family (with little kids) then I’m going to take a wild guess and say that you are a teeny bit, massively a lot, downright scared.
Or at the very least apprehensive.
You lay awake in bed, probably at 3 am, worrying about what your future life in New Zealand will look like once you move to the other side of the world with your family.

And who knows? They might even invite my teenagers to stay for a few years.
