I take it that both you and Deidre are Australians who moved to New Zealand. Are there a lot of you?

I hate to confess this, but we Americans see Australians and New Zealands as Oceanics and sometimes lump the two countries together in our minds.

In any case, have a good holiday.

Hi Chance. Deidre was born here to Australian parents, who nationalised her as Australian after she was born, and then brought her back to NZ where she's been ever since. Her parents split when she was 18, and her dad moved to Adelaide, while her mum moved to Wollongong, just south of Sydney, only a couple years ago. Ever since then, Deidre's been wanting to move to Australia to be closer to her family.

Me, I came here for a woman 5 years ago. Turned out the woman I came here for wasn't the woman I was meant to be here for. Now that I've found her, I can go back to Australia with her, which suits her just fine. :-)

There aren't that many Aussies living in NZ. There are far more kiwis (as the New Zealanders call themselves) living in Australia. Particularly at Bondi Beach, Sydney.

I've been saying for a while now that inside every kiwi is an Aussie, trying to get out. It's so true! :-)
