Expat Report Culture Shock in Wellington, New Zealand was published
Culture-Shock-in-Wellington
Do you have any advice or thoughts about culture shock you would like to share?
Know that it will probably happen to everyone at one point or another. Build time into your schedule to do things that you would do "at home". No matter how much it costs, prepare a meal like you would at home. (Continue)

Dial back your expectations, remember that if you want it to be like home you will have to move back home. Most situations are temporary and as long as you learn from an experience it was not a mistake. (Continue)

cheftech replied to the thread Gun/Self-Defense Laws on the New Zealand forum:
JohnCreasy initially posted:
I'm considering moving out of the US within the next couple of years, and need some answers about firearms, as well as the laws pertaining to the use of guns in self-defense. What types of firearms are allowed? Any restrictions on types, capacity, etc? Are you allowed to act in defense of your life? I have several other questions, but these should do as a start.
cheftech replied most recently with:
Me too. I don't think I can take another two years of Obama, riots, protesting, coppers being assassinated. I'm done.
cheftech replied most recently with:
I see that I can bring a gun in. That's good.
