Re: 4 Years and Still Struggling

I think friends would make an enormous difference.

Re: 8 months in Auckland...

Well we tend to regret the things we don't do more than the things we do. At least you'll know.
If I do go it will likely be Auckland because of the work but if I had a choice it would be Tauranga.

Re: Salary equivalents between UK and NZ

thanks Bo-Jangles. I'll take a look at those articles.
I have my own house in the UK. Bought and paid for.
