    Default 30 Days and counting

    Hello there!

    I am from the US (SOCAL) and my family (my husband, daughter and I) are moving to Auckland in June.
    My husband was offered a job at the University of Auckland and we decided to make the big move.
    So far, we have received our visas for 4 years, got our tickets leaving LAX June 6th and our moving company is packing us up on the 29th of May.
    Needless to say we are very excited and looking forward to learn more about the country, the culture and people living in NZ.
    The road to the actual moving date has been a little rocky as we have more responsibility here in the states than ever in our life.
    Also, there are so many questions unanswered, that I look forward to hear some opinions and advises.

    Hi and welcome. Good to have you with us. I'm sure we'll be happy to try to help answer your questions. It can be a bewildering time shifting to the other side of the world but it's a bonus that your husband already has a job to go to. That leaves you free to concentrate on settling in and starting to enjoy your new life.

    The very best of luck to you all! Let us know how you get on.

    Hi and welcome from me too

    If you ever make the wee trip south to Hamilton (about 1.5 hours), let us know. I also have friends in Auckland and are up there a bit, so can meet you for a coffee if you like.

    In the meantime, send your questions through - it keeps MB out of trouble if she has something to do

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

    KG, I'll have you know I'm a working girl now, albeit there isn't any money in the company yet to pay my salary . One day.....one day.....or at least that's what hubster keeps telling me.

    Hi.

    I am in Auckland, about 20mins from the city centre.

    It's a big step moving to another country and abit scary, but when you get here I'm sure you will all love it!

    Hope all goes well with the big move. If you want to meet up for a coffee when you arrive let me know!
