      A big hello from Norwich

      Hello Everyone,

      This is my first time on this site, I found it through the PomsinOz website of which I joined a few months ago, hubby and myself had been at the start of the process of immigrating to Adelaide in Oz but after a very long, deep and meaningful conversation which seemed to last weeks and weeks with our whole family we have decided that we would prefer to go to New Zealand instead.

      Hubby has always wanted to go and I have just discovered that I have loads of rellies over there too!! (although very distant rellies).

      We have started the process with a company called Emigrating expert
      who were quite cheap compared to some quotes I have had.
      We will have to see have to see how things go.

      Hope to hear from some of you guys.

      Welcome to Brits Abroad.

      My Dad travelled the world with his job and went to NZ a number of times for 3 months at a time. He always said he loved it and often said that out of all the places he travelled to, NZ is where he would have wanted to live!!

      Good luck

      I too - never used to be able to tell the difference between the Aussie and NZ accents.. Now it is reasonably easy..

      Def not Jayne,

      I sometimes speak to a Canadian in my my job but really couldn't tell the difference. I wonder what the accent differences are tho?

      Thanks everyone

      Thanks for the warm welcome,

      I have been looking at the different ways they say thing in New Zealand and
      apparently where as I call small botled beers (cheap ones) stubbies they are infact a type of tiny mens shorts!!!
      So I had better be careful and not to ask if I can grap a stubby I might get the wrong reaction !!:eek:

      I have never been to New Zealand but people I speak to always say that it is one of the places they would love to go to.

      I know that the wages are less there and the whole lifestyle is about 20yrs behind UK but bring it on, I know I can live a much simpler life, because here in UK I think we have everything done for us and I have become too lazy and I want to get my hands dirty and although I could get my hands dirty here my horrendous daily routine gets in the way.

      Anyway I just want to go and it cannot happen quick enough.
