My family and I moved to Tauranga area almost five months ago and we would love to meet with other expats in our area. We're from USA and have two kids, age 12 and 13. Would love to get together for a beer or wine and swap stories.
In all honesty there's at least 10 or so families who've been active on this forum in the past few years who live in Tauranga or the Bay Of Plenty. I've met 5 of those and I'm one. There's also a couple of families who I've attempted to meet up with but for one reason or another it hasn't happened. I'm friends with a few of the families, see them regularly and another has recently returned to the UK as it just wasn't working for them.
Also, now here they've all disappeared off the forum.
We've been in NZ 5.5 years. Did 2.5 years in Wellington and have been here nearly 3 years. We live on the West side in Te Puna.
Unfortunately just too busy at the moment for a meet up having recently built and have projects coming out of my ears plus working full time. Trying to get ready for parents coming from UK in December.
