About SA goes to NZ website

SA Going to NZ >>>>>>>>>>>>
Linking two beautiful countries !

This website is an amazing one stop- site that gives you the
 A to Z 
about emigrating to New Zealand.

      I had a chat to Nolan Clark, who created the website in 2006. 
For him it was a hand's on way to learn the ropes before his own emigration
 to NZ from Boksburg, SA mid 2008.
    This website has a world map that shows you where all the members are located.
 Nolan says it's about 50/50 South Africans and New Zealand Saffers. (Look under Forum 
and then Member Map.) The site has close to 3000 members and growing.

You can also start your own profile via the website and communicate with other members. There is a chat room 
so one can also meet fellow immigrants and wannabes. 

I joined the site last week and had several warm welcome emails and someone in a 
different NZ town, who is coming to Auckland, contacted me via SA going to NZ, 
and she's going to catch up with me over a coffee ! So it's a website that makes one
 feel welcomed and supported; a place to meet, greet and share. You start off as a 
'newbie' and then graduate to 'senior status'. I like being a newbie :) One's profile 
has a map to indicate which vicinity one resides in, as well as a chronological time-
line that shows one's date of arrival to one's current status. 

The temperature chart gives a daily bulletin for Auckland and Johannesburg -
 today it's 15' here and 6' in Johannesburg. Usually it's a lot warmer in SA in the Summer, 
but surprisingly enough it is sometimes warmer in Auckland than some SA spots in the

necessary info. Browse under
