Hi, there

Im a 29 year old civil engineer from Canada who has recently gotten a job offer to work in New Plymouth, NZ in Taranaki. New Plymouth seems relatively
affordable, but still very expensive. Also, I dont think 60000 is enough money so im thinking of renegotiating for 70000 NZ. Any thoughts or Canadian expats on here living in New Plymouth?

It seems like a pretty chill place, but also expensive and isolated so I want to do some further research before making a final decision. I think visiting NZ might be easier than relocating for work, but hey worth a shot for a while as well
