I have got my PR visa and am going to visit NZ in December, to validate it. (yes I know it's a long way off, but that's an even longer story!)
I will be traveling around both Islands for 4 weeks
Can anyone tell me or suggest the best place in NZ to live, (I know it will be your opinion!)
Here's the criteria:
1. I don't like big cities
2. Good climate, warmer the better! (least rain)
3. I don't mind what job I get, although I am a mechanical engineer.(forget about the Auckland careers!)
4. Keen motorcyclist
5.I'm really laid back (man!)

I quite fancy the look/sound of Hawkes Bay & the NE coast.
What do you suggest?

Cheers!

If you've got four weeks to travel around you should have plenty of time to sus out
what the different places are like. Since you've got to work you may be better off
living in a small town just outside a (small) city e.g. Wellington. The east cost of
S.Island is generally the least rainy and
v.laid back, but the North Island will have slightly better weather all year round.
Perhaps Taupo or something like that is small and v.nice. The nicer towns which are
generally smaller do not tend to have many jobs around there, so this may pose a
dilemma. I am also a mechanical engineer and interested in moving to NZ for a job,
so would appreciate advice on how you have the opportunity to work/live over there.
you can mail me at [email protected] or reply to my new post (14 Feb) on this
newsgroup.

cheers

Ian
