Default We are HERE!!!!!

HIya

We arrived nearly a week ago - how fab is New Zealand. Although after 4 days in Hong Kong it does seem very cold!

Sorted out a rental house with a sea view - fantastic, sorted out the bank, just got to buy a car now. Staying in a lovely motel until the rental is available.

The jet lag was nasty - not had it that bad ever before!

Really enjoying looking around Tauranga and the surrounding areas.

Bye for now

Just to keep your hopes up...I've been here 4 weeks today.....been in a rental house for a week ....I've got two dogs arriving a week on Sunday, and while there weren't dozens of rentals that would take dogs, the estate agent I got this from showed me two on the same day. Advertised in local paper and on trade-me. This one is only 7 years old, in Paraparaumu and very pleasant....looking forward to my wife & dogs arriving now

Thank you for this encouraging news! Trade me seems to have good properties but most say no pets. Guess I'll have to wait till we get there to find out.
Karma to you

Hi Nick and Charlie,
Welcome to Tauranga! Where abouts is your rental? I was wondering if it was the same one we used?! We've been told that this is the coldest winter in a long time. Amazing really because the temp gets well into double figures everyday.
