What You’ll Miss When You Move To New Zealand

What You’ll Miss When You Move To New Zealand

I wish I’d read a post like this when we were looking to move to New Zealand ten years ago.

At least then I would have been prepared. I could have packed a hot water bottle and a sun hat and some hankies.

But I didn’t.

Instead, I got to the other side of the world and blubbed for six months about how my family never returned my calls and that the bathroom in the house that we were renting was cold and smelly and damp.

Raising Your Kids In New Zealand

Raising Your Kids In New Zealand

Last week I received this email.

“Hi. I am thinking of moving to New Zealand with my family but I am concerned that as we are moving from the UK, my eldest son (who is 12) will be bored. Could you give me any advice?”

Righteo then. Let’s see what I can do.

I have two kids, a boy age 18 (note to oneself, must stop calling him a kid) and a daughter who is 15.

We have been living in New Zealand for almost eleven years. We emigrated from the UK for a better way of life.

And yes.

We found it.

Visiting New Zealand From America. Tell Us The Truth. What Did Ya Think? PODCAST #18

It’s easy for me to bang on about how wonderful New Zealand is – my family and I have been living here for the last ten years and although the country has its pros and cons, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I adore the place. Making the move to New Zealand was the best thing we ever did.

(Even if the kiwi slang words still drive me mad after almost a decade).

Still.  I probably am a bit biased.

So we thought we’d give you a treat…

Sandflies or Gales. When IS The Best Time To Visit New Zealand?

Sandflies or Gales. When IS The Best Time To Visit New Zealand?

Iam guessing that with the way things are in the world (at the moment), if you asked most people when was the best time to visit New Zealand they would say right now.

As I write this in June 2020, the boarders to New Zealand remain closed.

But.

Although things are looking a little rough around the edges and rather doom and gloomy when it comes to travel, it won’t always be this way.

So we need to get you prepared.
