My fiance got a job in Dunedin and we're set to move this January the latest.
I would be very glad if anyone could provide me with more information re the real life in the area, work opportunities, study opportunities, entertainment, etc. If someone here is going through a similar situation or is already in NZ, would be very useful for us to hear some fresh opinions.
I'm interested actually about knowing simple things, as after all life is about common, simple things.
From what I've read so far about this town, it looks like a beautiful place, surrounded by incredible nature. However what I don't fully understand is how can a town so spread as Dunedin be so lively and how can one reach to any place in town in 10 min, if the public transport has to cover a huge distance.
I am also very curious if during the summer one can swim in the sea or the water would be too cold for a normal person, let's admit I'm not a surfer and have no intention to become, but who knows... I'm open to new experiences.
Another issue is of course the fact that we both need to ask for long term stay permit or residence. I have no idea how long that takes, but I've read about the requirements.
