Default Hi Everyone!

Seriously thinking of moving to NZ and been looking at the Hawkes Bay area, so any info would be greatly appreciated. Going to our 1st Expo in April London, really looking forward to it.

The Hawkes Bay region is quite nice. Lovely warm sunny summers and relatively mild winters. Nice wine produced there as well, so I hear.

Thanks for the reply! Is Hawkes Bay near any major cities do you know?

Kinda depends on what you consider major, eh? We're talking New Zealand here, right? Napier-Hastings are the biggest population centres in the Hawkes Bay.

I've been living in New Zealand for six years. It's a life. I have no idea what to say about lifestyle. Too darn subjective for me to comment.

Do I miss England? Well, my sum total of time in England is the two hours I spent in transit at Gatwick Airport New Year's Day 2002. I'm not British y'see.

Pros -- gorgeous countryside, mostly friendly folks, fresh fruit and veg, sporting culture, beetroot on sandwiches, uncrowded beaches even in the main population centres, feijoas, beautiful bird life...and so on.

Cons -- crap drivers, expensive shoes and books, boy racers, cold houses in winter (pack your woolies), lack of decent affordable Mexican food...and so on.
