Living in New Zealand With Kids. 3 Undisclosed Benefits

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.

Maybe I’m naive.

Or slightly twisted.

But when I found out that there was an organisation called couchsurfing that would allow me to travel the world with my teenagers (for free) while meeting other like-minded people,  I jumped at it.
