Re: North and South islands - Climate Advice & wher to live for lifestyle

I suppose it's anywhere with a few shops, enough to get by for day to day groceries with the option of eating out or just grabbing a quick coffee (in my case Tea as I detest coffee) πŸ™‚

Why did you move to New Zealand?

I've read some interesting posts on this forum; in particular the 'negative side of making the move' to NZ (which has all been very helpful by the way). I know I can't speak on behalf of every...

Re: Should we move to NZ?

Thanks for your feeback, the comfort blanket is merely a phrase of knowing we have a home in the UK should we decide to return. Not huge fans of European countries so would never invest there.

Re: Should we move to NZ?

Thank you both for the in-depth responses.

Re: Moving to NZ, what would have done differently, what are you so glad you did

Re: Moving to NZ, what would have done differently, what are you so glad you did

I hope I am not hijacking the thread by asking those of you who have said "you would have kept your property in the UK" or "a 2 year trial run", is this because in hindsight, you would have returned...

re: North and South islands - Climate Advice & wher to live for lifestyle

re: North and South islands - Climate Advice & wher to live for lifestyle

Bearskin, Bevs & justcol, thank you for the tips and advice. I'll add these to my research list.

Is NZ dog friendly i.e. is there lots of places where they accept dogs?

Thanks again,
