    Smile Newbie's

    Hi Everyone

    New to the site but seem to be old hands in NZ. Been reading lots of threads by people and somethings seem never to change, delays with immigration, Removal Companies miss leading people, MAF Costs. Could go on, but you need to let go, we have been in NZ for 16 months, on Permanent residency and every hurdle and fence we faced was worth it. We have settled into a new lifesryle and slowly making new friends. No regrets what more can we say. We have bought a great home in the Wairarapa (needs some work done to bring it back to its glory) but we have all the time we need.

    So if any one is planning to visit the Wairarapa always a good flat white or glass of wine waiting.

    Look forward to chatting with people as time goes on.

    to the forum, Colecraft. Good to have you with us. Having folks on here who have already made the move is just as important as those who are either about to start the immigration process or are already in the midst of it.

    Great to hear that NZ life is to your liking. We have another member, Nattydread, on here who is from the Wairarapa although he only pops in now and then. He seems to be very happy down there, too. Must be something in the air.
