    Default Wanting to move from a tropical paradise to a better paradise

    My name is Sharon and for years I have been interested in moving to New Zealand. I have heard the people who live there are down to earth like me. I am currently a nursing student who has about a year and a half left of school before I receive my RN license. I have always been the outdoor type and from what I have seen in pictures, the outdoors in New Zealand are breath taking. I currently live in Florida USA. the town I live in was once dubbed the shark bite capitol of the world. I am really eager to meet some people from NZ and become friends.

    Hi Sharon, welcome to the forum

    When you finally move to NZ, make sure to leave those sharks behind, wont you! Ouch!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    Default Hello!

    Hi! I'm an American and a nurse living and working in New Zealand. I work in a little 21 bed rural hospital on the northern part of the north island.

    Not so much the paradise here the last 24 hours - high winds and heavy rain last night, cloudy, windy and showery today and getting a bit chilly.

    Glad to have you on the forum!
