    Great news that you are settling well in NZ, Folubode . What part of the country are you in? It will be coming to winter time now so you know the best is still to come. When winter is finished you can look forward to your first NZ summer .

    Hello and good to hear you're made it alright!

    We were quite amazed at how much money we got through in those first few weeks .. although thankfully the spending has halted now!!

    Have fun,
    Lou
