  • Congratulations. That's a huge step and I hope it works out well for you and Jenine. It also sounds like it might be quite relaxing as opposed to flying all over the world constantly.

    Hmm ... hobbitses.

    • Thanks! Yes, definitely less expensive for me if I live in NZ and my employer pays to fly me to the US for conferences, rather than living in the US and my having to pay to fly my entire family to and from NZ. And not having a US house will mean an end to mortgage hell. I can't tell you how anticipated that is ...

  • NZ rocks. I wish I could get back there. I only spent 3 weeks there, and I loved the place.

  • Having changed countries a few times already, I have just one word of advice: learn the language before you get there.

      • :-) Thanks! I had trouble learning to speak American when I first moved here. I still sometimes have trouble. I think native Spanish speakers have an accent that eludes me still, and vice-versa. When Jenine and I were in El Paso trying to get my work permit from the INS office in Mexico (not recommended, btw) we had dinner one night and Jenine had to translate English to English between me and the waitress. It was very amusing.
