Re: After many, many false starts, I'm finally on track for moving home

Cheers! My auntie recommended 5k and a job before I moved, so I figure 10k without a job is do-able, and 10k with a job really good.

Re: After many, many false starts, I'm finally on track for moving home

I opted out of Kiwisaver, because even after getting cold feet after my last failed attempt, I always sort of had it in my mind that I wasn't going to be retiring in New Zealand. I can't say for...

Re: After many, many false starts, I'm finally on track for moving home

Thanks! This time I think I've given myself a more reasonable time frame in which to save enough to survive on if I can't get a job there from NZ, and to organise everything.

Re: Small scale moving costs. Air cargo?

I'm in a similar position to OP, and they look like a good solution for those with small amounts to ship back. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: 2017 Weather Thread

I'm actually looking forward to experiencing a second winter this year - hopefully this one will have snow! An added bonus is that I'll be escaping a hot & humid summer.

Re: Settling back in the UK after spending most of your life abroad

Re: Traveling Back to the UK after so many years

Moving to the other side of the world is a tough thing. NZ is nice enough I suppose, but it just isn't home. Yeah, London is a really expensive city & very crowded. It's a shame your family aren't...

Re: Settling back in the UK after spending most of your life abroad

Nah, only twenties, I don't think they're likely to have any of the new fivers, and probably wouldn't give anyone the old ones.

Re: Settling back in the UK after spending most of your life abroad
