Living in New Zealand. Why (Some) Immigrants Can’t Settle

Living in New Zealand. Why (Some) Immigrants Can’t Settle

We have been living in New Zealand for twelve years. 

We arrived from the UK where we had a comfortable home, my husband was on a good wage and both of my kids were at school.

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!
