    Default College grad US to NZ

    Hi! Just joined the site...seems pretty legitimate and useful so far. I don't typically use online forums anything, until I realized that I booked a plane ticket and got a work visa across the globe and I know next to nothing. I am a smug traveler/nervous wreck/adventurous soul looking to plan my first year of traveling and working in NZ. Fell in love with this place in 2006 when I traveled the country through a college program for a month. I'll be among the kiwis this August.

    So, that's the abridged version of me and my situation! Hello.

    Welcome to MoveToNZ amctonz

    Can assure you we are legitimate and, I like to think, useful at times

    Anything in particular you've got on your mind, that you'd like to ask or know about? Are you planning on moving to NZ on a permanent basis eventually or are you just here for the year?

    Anyway, good to have you on board, we look forward to seeing you around

    But you forgot to mention half of us are crazy - sometimes, anyway.

    Amctonz and a welcome from me. I'm sure you'll find NZ a welcoming country with generally helpful folks so you'll be fine. Are you intending to settle in one particular area or moving around?

    Just be prepared to leave your US thinking at home. People and life is different here and that is why you like it. Accept the thinking and be prepared for a different way of life.

    For some it can be difficult and for others easy as water off a ducks back. Just be open to things and not "well this is not how we do it in the USA" as this quickest way to be alienated or become disgruntled but people here are used to it.

    Cheers
