At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at New Zealand and some of the social media accounts you should be following if you’re thinking of moving there.Internationals & Expats in Auckland & New Zealand
This group is great place for people to connect and get to know each other as well as find out what’s going on and what Auckland has to offer. Frequent events are a useful part of the group, online support is great but the opportunity to meet and mix in person is something any expat should jump at.
American Expats in New Zealand
Most of the information you will need as an American in New Zealand is held in this group. The members have had varied experiences of expat life and are happy to let you have the benefit of them. Meeting likeminded people and rebuilding a support structure is something that this group fosters through regular meet-ups as well as providing an open and safe place for questions and queries.
British Expats in New Zealand
A place to connect and get first hand information on what life is really like for a Brit in New Zealand. Knowing the language does not necessarily mean that the transition will be easy, especially when you are starting a new life on the other side of the world from family and friends. There is no question small or silly enough that one of the three hundred strong members can’t help you with, and expect an answer complete with a healthy dose of British humour.
This American expat loves art, design and cats, though not necessarily in that order. You will get a feel for the real Christchurch through April’s eyes and a glimpse into the life of an expat making a life so far away from family, culture shock and all. Always an honest and entertaining read about the ups and downs of life in New Zealand, any prospective expat should stop by and say hi.
This American mum of three moved to Napier, New Zealand in 2008. Married to a New Zealand born husband, it was always ‘the plan’ to settle in his native land and she has written about the process, warts and all, from start to end on her blog. Her family orientated snapshots give a glimpse into the everyday expat life she enjoys, along with a healthy dose of stunning scenery.
We’re always on the lookout for more accounts to feature – if you write about living in New Zealand on social media, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
