    Default Coming to New Zeakand in 3 weeks!

    Hi
    Thought I'd take a look at this forum and ended up joining! My family are flying to Auckland in 3 weeks from UK, and are staying in Orewa for 3 months initially until we find our feet. I am really apprehensive as I will know nobody and not know my way around. Can anyone offer any advice regarding the big move and making friends etc? Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Hi Meggy, welcome to MTNZ.

    One of the best ways to make friends in a new place is to join clubs or groups of like-minded people with whom you can share interests and find common ground. If you have any hobbies or interests have a look on the Internet to see if there will be any such groups in the area you will be living. Finding your way around will come with time. I don't imagine Orewa is a huge place that will swallow you up so just take it a bit at a time. Kiwis can be very friendly and helpful so don't worry about asking for help.
