Well, that's a given, Jess. :) I'd go to Wellington for the music alone! :lalala:

Welcome, by the way. I don't suppose you're the TPF Jess?

I just noticed on my millionth viewing the Fly My Pretties DVD that some of the old footage (I'm guessing the stuff used in Nato's Theme) is of the gannets on Cape Kidnappers mentioned on that site! Sure, that's probably only of interest to Andria, since I think she's the only one who's seen that bit, but still!

Hehe, bit late to the party.

I recognise some of those houses in Wellington. It's definitely a nice place to live. :P

I would give me eye teeth to live in Wellington... if I still had them. Wait - those I do have, but I can't afford to give them up.

One day... one day... *sigh*

I'm sure we'll invite you to the house warming when we move there :P And won't expect any teeth in return :shock:

Eww. Eeew!

Napier? No. Good God no. I grew up there. After moving to Wellington, then travelling back to Napier see family, I got to see it for the horrible place that it actually is. Gross. Over run with old people and bogans.

Although the architecture and history is interesting, do not waste your time or money on this place. The best thing to do is pretend it doesn't exist.

I agree with Jess. Wellington all the way!

Beck, you shouldn't have mentioned the architecture. I'm a sucker for architecture. But don't worry, Wellington is still tops on the list for me, if I ever manage to make it there.

I'd have to recommend Wellington to anyone. Although it's small in terms of large cities, it's a really good size cause you can walk everywhere! And it's impossible to get lost, somehow all of the streets all link to one another!

If you don't mind the awesome wind-swept look, it's a wicked place.

Hehe. Not at this present time. However, Max has lived there for a couple of years and loves it there. His being an Aussie meant he was/is able to live and work there. We plan on visiting sometime in the not too distant future, and have also discussed the possibility of relocating there, if and when the time is right for us. Its somewhere he would like to live there again and I've lived overseas for a number of years and would be happy to do so again, so its very possible NZ will be somewhere we end up. I've yet to visit, but when we go, if I like it, it'll be somewhere we both will look to as a future home.

Very cool Sherry!

Is NZ as strict about people living/working there as Australia is? I've always thought Australia has an interesting plan with the "Show us you've got something our own people don't have and maybe we'll let you live here" way of running things.
