I’ve been blogging for over a year now and have collected quite a few posts that talk about what it’s been like for me to move to New Zealand. It's definitely a process settling in to a new place. No quick fix here...they say it takes about 2 years to begin to feel settled.
I thought I would provide some quick links especially for those new to our website and want to find out how a girl from suburban Connecticut in the United States ended up in New Zealand.
I discuss how I came to be in New Zealand here and here, and talk about my first impressions of New Zealand, learning to drive on the left hand side of the road, and learning a 'whole new language'--though both Americans and Kiwis speak English.
Have you had any similar experiences? Different experiences? How do you cope being far from ‘home’ and at the same time establishing a ‘new home’? What do you love about New Zealand and hate about it at the same time?
