I see Darla has been doing her hard sell for NZ or is that Aus. It seems another case of somebody who could not make a success in NZ having to blame the country. The article just quoted could be written about any country, I remember reading similar in the UK and Europe.

Life is what you make it, the Expats around us have a great life and have no regrets, but they get on with life and do not answer forums. The best suggestion to anybody thinking of coming here, is to take a trip out here, talk to expats and look at the the work rest balance, the majority have adjusted to the leisure opportunities here.
Please highlight the section in my post where I mentioned Australia. Again, you are deeply afflicted by your own personal prejudices and its colouring your judgment and outlook on life. Lighten up a bit, or you'll burst something.

What happened to the truce? i didn't take you long to break your half of the deal did it?

In your opinion, people migrate because they "could not make a success" in the country they left? ipso facto all emigrants are failures? Rather a strong and indefensible argument to be making, since you are by your own definition a failure too. So what are you doing on an expat forum banging on about Australia?

It's obvious to me that you're not working at present and are living the life of a retiree, otherwise you'd have a lot more to say about the report I quoted.

Speaking from personal experience I worked long hours in New Zealand (far too many) and when I moved I embraced the chance to switch to part-time work without it having much impact on my income. This means I enjoy my leisure time a lot more. That's what I call having a lifestyle and I wish the same for everyone else in their emigration journey.

Rather than you two taking offence at everything I write in this section, and seeing how you both suffer from the occasional sense of humour failure about all things New Zealand why not go to your User CP, go down to Settings and Options and edit your ignore option to blank out all my posts? That should avoid some of the bickering that goes on in the NZ forum. I shall do the same for you.

We seem to have strayed off the original topic which was AUCKLAND Life & Places to Go & it was intended to provide information with links for places of interest within Auckland for the visitors or newly arrived folk.

Mods, Can posts off topic go into threads with titles that are more apt for the subject matter.
