    Default Howdy!

    Should have probably done this before posting in the other forum, but hey! ... it's a messed up World we live in

    Well, Already met some of you, so "Hi" to them, and Hey to everyone else!.
    My name's Lee, from Scotland, UK, im 29 and currently ripping my hair out deciding whether or not I should / can afford to take the plunge, leave everything behind and head to New Zealand in January 2008 (That's when a friends going).

    So, If I can get money sorted out, and summon the courage to take the plunge, I'll hopefully be heading out on a 1 year working visa, looking for a proper job while out there and hopefully apply for residency in NZ with an adequate job offer in hand.

    Well, that's me, that's my story ... Howdy everyone

    Hi Lee & Welcome

    I'm a kiwi hoping to return to nz by September/October 07. My (Scottish) OH & I are living just out of Glasgow - where abouts are you?

    As you've already figured out, this is a great place for info & help in getting Down Under They're all crazy, in fact some are certifiable but don't let that put you off!

    Lee, we're about 10 miles out, just past Kirkintilloch.

    How's the research going?

    Going ok :)
    Feeling a bit worn out by the whole thing, it's all a bit daunting and I only really started looking into it properly in the last couple of weeks. Found this site by accident looking for some more NZ job sites, it's a very handy tool for nOObs like me who read things over 100 times and still don't completely get it

    My main problem is some financial issues I need to resolve, the move is all a bit last minute and I think I may be rushing into it a bit too quickly.

    Hopefully I'll get it all worked out though, I'll be sure to keep you all updated

    Yup, know how you feel - & I'm going home! It was a lot easier when I came over here 7 years ago on my own!

    Have sent you a PM.
