Currently Auckland CBD, 1 bedroom apartment on Princes Wharf, until the end of the year...

...and then we are hoping to move out to the suburbs - maybe to the West like Ponsonby near the CBD (looks like a lovely neighbourhood) or maybe in the direction of Henderson Valley, then I will be near a place where I can go horse riding.

Once we have PR we are going to see how soon we can get ourselves down to Canterbury. Auckland is a stunning city compared to Johannesburg but it is still a city and still too overcrowded and busy for our liking... we have always wanted to stay in the big, wide open spaces...

I think we're going to have to meet up soon after we arrive - I have a BIG feeling we're going get along fabulously!
Precisely why our prayers for jobs are aimed at Wellies/Christchurch and eventually, hopefully, Wanaka (or an equally beautiful and little place!)

Mine has ALWAYS been on my signature, because I'm NOT to scared to say where I live. I'm actually pretty proud of our "stinky" little town....  :2funny: . You can also check on my profile thingy and get a fair idea where in Roto do we stay. Cheers, SAKB.

Hi Marcia and Troy. When you come and visit you LOOK at the map.  :2funny: Jokes aside, glad to see that your paper work is coming on fine and that you will soon be here. LOVELY country, specially in the warmer side of the North Island. Never been through such a warm winter in my whole life! Greetings from us.

Guys, the ability to say where you live has always been there, you can see it in my personal info to your left.

To add this info all you need to do is go to your Profile > Forum Profile Information
and add it into the "Personal Text" box

I think it is better putting it here than in your signature. Leave your signature for stuff like your timeline or your ticker.

also don't forget to pin the map to show where you live while you are busy setting your profile info ;)
