Hello KS!  :clap: WElcome to the site

We are still in the process and i am not sure where we will land up but if it is in Auckland we would love to meet up (and if not make a plan anyways!). I might also have to spend some time without my husband as he has a contract to work in Nigeria at the moment and if he can't find work in NZ he will go back for a while. We also don't have any family.

Yes, Very relieved! It was close,  He is only here for a couple of weeks, hopefully he will have his visa by then and something to work on here and he will want to stay.  We are going to Rotorua for a couple days after Christmas.  hopefully a holiday will help.

Well we are getting around on public transport, haven't had a need for a car yet.  8)

Is there anywhere nice around Birkenhead ? Haven't been there yet, so wouldn't mind checking it out.

G'Day my best matey!  I might not be in Auckland yet but when we do arrive we're gonna braai/BBQ the Kiwi's right into next year.  I'm still finding my feet in this forum 'thing' but I think it's an excellent idea for all the x pats to get a lekka chat in.  Luv ya madly, c u soon.  :twothumbs:

Ok guys, tons of chatting here never did result in a proper meetup plan!!!

So how's about we schedule a date for Feb 16th in Auckland - North Shore area - Takapuna beach perhaps?  Everybody brings their own blankets/towels/chairs, and then bring your own dish to share.  Dunno if there's anybody that has BBQ facilities... We'll take pics to share with the Gautengers that will be meeting up later on the same day! 

So let's have a head count so long, and I'll see if we can settle on a venue.
lekker sweet as, y'all
