For those of you in NZ, where have you settled and for those of you on your way to NZ, where do  you plan on settling?

We will most likely be heading to Hamilton (about 1.5 hours south of Auckland).  Didn't want to go to Auckland as it is too expensive to live there.
lekker sweet as, y'all

For us it is Whangarei in the north. Or as close as we can get to it. Spent 7 weeks there and loved it. The weather suits us, there are beautiful beaches within a 30 min drive in any direction and as neither of us are really city people ........perfect in every way. Oh and we don't do cold :thumbdown:
