If you are moving to New Zealand with kids then you will have thought more than once about where, when and how you will break the news to them.

001- Welcome to the NZ Ahead Podcast. Is New Zealand For You??

Welcome! This is the very first episode of NZ Ahead, the one-stop podcast for moving to and living in New Zealand.&nbsp; We are your hosts, Liz and Brian, a husband and wife who, along with our two children (Sonny and Tessa), moved to New Zealand from England in 2009. We have travelled all over New Zealand but our home is in Taranaki, on the West Coast of the North Island. We live on top of a hill under a dormant volcano. We like to keep life interesting. Our favourite thing in the world (apart from red wine which we also can't get enough of) is to share everything we can about moving to New Zealand. So that we can help others who are thinking of making this wonderful country their home. When Brian and I made the big move over a decade ago we found it very difficult to find real answers to the questions and concerns we had about New Zealand. And let's face it, there are plenty of them. Concerns I mean. Taking your family to the other side of the world is no walk
