    Default Newbie here - Hi!

    Hi everyone, just found this site, it's great! I'm not sure if I've looked everywhere but I can't find anything on LTBV here, am I in the wrong place? We have just had our approved and are heading out middle of November to start our adventure! Can't wait! I'll be going with my hubby and 4 year old daughter (who can't wait either - promised her a pink bedroom - weyhey, the power of pink!!!! [smiley=icon_lol.gif] )

    Forgive me if I start asking questions that have probably been posed a million times before!

    Take care all, thanks in advance.
    Pumpkin.

    Pumpkin. Welcome to our merry little band. Glad to have you with us.

    If you do a search (found up at the top) for LTBV it'll bring up all sorts of stuff from others that have made posts about it. And don't worry about asking repeat questions. If we try hard enough for long enough we might even get the answers right one day.

    Good luck with your adventure. We've had quite a few members making the giant leap to NZ in the last few months and soon you'll be joining them too.

    Hi Pumpkin,

    Not many people go along the LTBV route so info about it is a bit scarce. Anyhow, it seems you have done all the hard work and got your approval -congrats! [smiley=038.gif]

    Certainly fire away with the questions ... that's what we are here for!

    Sorry i won't be able to help with any LTBV questions, but howdy anyway. Welcome to the forum, and good luck with the upcoming move.

    Hello Pumpin! Welcome!

    Wow...LTBV, if you can share how you got yours approved, I guess many other readers will benefit from your experience.

    Good luck in your move there.

    Hi Pumpkin, we thought about the LTBV route but really didn't fancy the Gestapo type grilling and didn't have the squillion quid slush fund they require so we knocked that one on the head even though we've both been self-employed for 5 years and I've been free-lancing for close on 20! Gonna have to go back to being wage slaves to fulfill our NZ dream [smiley=icon_frown.gif] Ho hum - where there's a will there's a way [smiley=icon_wink.gif]
