Americans in New Zealand. Will They (Ever) Feel At Home?

How do Americans in New Zealand settle? Will New Zealand feel familiar in any ways?

If you are moving to New Zealand from America and wondering what your new life will be like then you will love what we are about to share.

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.

If you are from the US and are asking Is New Zealand for me then hopefully this video podcast will help you feel right at home!

Wondering about New Zealand culture? Well. My family and I have been living in New Zealand for almost twelve years.

And in that time we have got to know many New Zealanders. (Or if we are going to use New Zealand slang, Kiwis).

So in this week’s New Zealand podcast, we thought it would be interesting to talk about New Zealand culture; most importantly the things that New Zealand people are known for. Tell you our opinion on whether we think those labels are right.

New Zealand School System Vs The US. Who Wins?

New Zealand School System Vs The US. Who Wins?

The education system in New Zealand receives an unfair amount of flack.

When we were planning on moving to New Zealand twelve years ago, the school system was one of the things that people always brought up.

“Ohhh… you know schools aren’t that good over there don’t you?”  said the people who had never crossed the Atlantic in their lives. “And apparently, you can’t get decent bacon”.

You know my thoughts on this. Tosh. That’s what.

I’ve had plenty of decent bacon butties in New Zealand.
