New Zealand Calling
« on: June 16, 2009, 12:34:19 AM »
Now I know I'm not the only Kiwi/Belfast girl on here, so stand up and be counted. Who else settled in New Zealand.
We emigrated to Australia in Feb 1968, stayed there 5 years and then moved to Christchurch NZ, Husband of 28 years Paul and I retired to Oamaru (small town on the east coast of the South Island) 4 years ago. I will post some photographs.
