Re: Reality of Chch?

I was recently back in Christchurch and to be honest it's the last place I'd want to live in NZ. It's very depressing and will take years to fully recover from 2011. I was there 3 years ago and there...

Re: Moving to Spain soon, questions regards NIE and paying tax

Re: Remain a citizen of the EU

Not going to happen unless the EU became a single nation. Just think of the confusion at border control. Whether you are an associate member of the EU or not, you will still only have a British...

Re: Auckland or Wellington

Wellington is smaller but has far better nightlife.

For me it would be Auckland. The weather in Wellington is often awful. Even in the summer it can be downright cold and wet.
