    Have you been on a recce? Bethlehem is nice, but we found it a bit 'Stepford'. Had a gated community feel to it which wasn't for us. A third of the office live there though, with 2 thirds on the Mount which definately wasn't for us. No certainty where we'lll end up, but Matua is the red hot favourite.

    Obviously still learning myself, but keep posting and let me know and I'l see if I can help.

    Congratulations, it's a good feeling when you get to see the visas. Looking forward to seeing Vicki on the unit and adding another non-kiwi accent to the staff. Let us know if there is anything we can do/get for you.

    Congrats, you sound far more organised than us!
    We're still waiting on our visa's, sent passports off last Friday so hopefully wont be too long.
    Flights booked for 5th Jan, we're heading to Tauranga too!

    Which shipping company are you using? We're in the process of getting quotes.

    We're going via LA, taking little one to Disney to break up the flight. Flying with BA and Quantas, is that the same one?

    6 weeks, can't wait! Bet you can't either

    Air NZ from LHR to LAX is NZ1, and then you can either stay on after the refuel (longest scheduled flight in the world), or catch NZ5 2 hours after. Are you flying into TGA (ie connecting at AKL) or driving from there? The plane between AKL and TGA is 'interesting' after the 747!
