Moving to New Zealand



New Zealand - a country as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside

New Zealand is an extremely beautiful and diverse country, a place where you never have to travel very far to find the most amazing scenery or landscapes that completely take your breath away. Vast near empty beaches or small intimate sandy coves, snow covered mountains, fiords, bush, geysers, vineyards, rugged wildlife and highly coloured flowers and trees set against deep blue skies. Space, freedom, tranquillity, fun, adventure, it's all here.

With a population of just over 4 million it goes without saying that it's not crowded and in comparison, the UK and Japan are similar in size but have populations of over 60 million and 127 million respectively.

People are pretty easy going, friendly and positive. Bare feet, slippers, jandals, 4 inch heels, anything goes and individuality is embraced. Children are encouraged to be themselves, to be the best they can, to laugh, care for each other and to 'have a go' at everything. There is a refreshing honesty about the way they tackle issues and difficulties and thankfully common sense still prevails and mostly wins the day.

Many kiwis have an entrepreneurial streak and can be pretty resourceful, it isn't unusual to have an additional source of income and for many households it's a necessity yet somehow they still find time to relax and do other things besides work.

You'll find a wonderful mix of old fashioned values, un-spoilt countryside and up to date technology. The facilities found here match those of much larger countries, the countryside, land, forests, parks and reserves are immaculately and sensitively managed and respected by the majority of people who use them. Even the unusual kiwi who hasn't travelled overseas, recognises what a special place they live in.

 It's no wonder that kiwis are so passionate and proud of their country.
