Still, I'd rather only fight 1 thing. So I'll stick with the horse sized duck.

Re: What to expect upon arrival.

Thanks Col. Another friend in NZ has said the same. As always, I'm over thinking things and creating issues that aren't there.

What to expect upon arrival.

I'm probably overthinking this one, but as I'll be applying for the families visas soon I thought I'd look into it in a bit more depth.
