    I live in Bedford, Bedfordshire, UK

    Default Hello from the UK!

    Hi all,

    Thought I would do as it asked and introduce myself! I am a 30 year old femail from Bedford who is hoping to move to New Zealand within the next 2 years. I am a secondary music teacher and would really love to live in the Wellington area.

    I have started filling in the qualification forms but would love any advice or help with the little things such as rough ideas as to living costs in NZ, or just friendly people that already live there or are in the same boat as me!!

    Hi Alicks and .

    Here are some news articles that have been posted on here about the cost of living in NZ. It's a bit daunting because times are hard at the moment, like in a lot of other countries.

    This is a previous thread about the same topic. We did have some good posts on here some time ago, where folks put up their weekly or monthly outgoings, but those would be out of date now. We could do with some current ones.... pretty please .
