    Smile Hello and all that...

    Hi,
    I'm a married 33 year old father of two. I live in Birmingham, England; we're looking at moving the family to NZ in a couple of years time...
    I've joined this forum so I can (hopefully) find answers to the plethora of questions that keep occurring to us.

    So, hello, good evening, and I look forward to picking your collective brains :-D

    New members usually provide the cake
    Inside me is a skinny woman crying to get out but I can usually shut her up with cake!

    we're looking at the north island..
    possibly bay of plenty...
    but really need some pointers, because we're just using google earth and estate agent searches at the moment and saying "Ooh..that looks kinda nice"

    could do with some honest ideas of decent areas and places to avoid...
