Any info would be good to help with the decision, many thanks
I would love to hear any advice on New Zealand as well! My friend Stacey and I are thinking of moving from Australia to New Zealand (our visa will be up) for just under a year. I hear nothing but amazing things about New Zealand and a lot of people have actually told me that it is even more beautiful then Oz.....if that is even possible!!!
The downside to NZ might only be the colder weather....supposedly their summers don't get that hot....mid 20s max....so I hear...
Another attractive factor of NZ to me is that it is supposedly A LOT cheaper then Australia....which I don't think would be that hard as we have found Oz to be extremely expensive.
Any advice from others who have been to NZ would be appreciated
