Greetings from LM2NZ
« on: December 28, 2007, 05:36:06 am »
Hello Julle! I am so pleased to see there is a growing community of South Africans in New Zealand. Although we also have a similar website for the Pommies in the U.K. (www.letsmove2nz.co.uk), we are still South Africans heading to New Zealand in 2008 and so we are pleased to be members of this community.

My wife Tracy and I will hopefully be arriving in New Zealand in May 2008 if all goes according to plan. Where we are going to live is still a mystery to us but we do have a good team working for us (New Life New Zealand) and they should be giving us some options soon.

Wherever it will be I am sure we are going to bump into other South Africans along the way and a site like this is a great place to meet and greet new friends, especially when we need to locate where the best Boerewors and Biltong is made!

We look forward to meeting some of you hopefully and sharing a couple of beers over a braai or Potjie with you. See you soon!

Welcome :) This is a great site with great people. Especially when you feel like all the paperwork is getting you down and you seem to be going around in circles!

Hello soontobekiwi en welkom!  :)  Ons wil ook vroegerig in 2008 oorgaan, maar weet ook nog nie regtig waar om te gaan bly nie, so julle is nie alleen in daai bootjie nie! Ons wag ook om te hoor van ons span mense wat help om dinge te reel vir die Groot Trek.
