    Default Essex to New Zealand

    Hi im Lara

    I am currently in the very beggining stages of hopefully moving to nz.I am looking to move with my mum, sister, brother in law , niece , hopefully my aunty and my doggy lucky.

    I am have never been to nz before, but from every bit of extensive research i have done i really want to go.
    We are coming over for three weeks in Feb to see if we definaty like it as me and my mum have never been. If we do like it then its action stations, we would love to be there by xmas 2009.

    Has any one else moved from Essex in the last few years ?? how have you found it ??

    Hi Lara,

    I haven't moved from Essex, but would like to welcome you to the forum anyway

    Where in NZ are you thinking of moving to?

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

    we are looking at Auckland and Wellington due to the job front for 3 of us my brother in law works in banking and myself and my sister in media/marketing. We are also looking to start u our own business as well. My sister has friends in both Auckland and Wellington so we have a little help at each end.

    Hi Lara and welcome on board.

    Thats a big family move you're planning although I guess it makes the move that bit easier than some having your family make the move with you.

    As I understand Auckland is the place for banking/finance where Wellington is better for IT work but i'm sure there will be plenty of work at either place.

    Anyway- hope to see you around the forum.
