I'm a New Zealander who, along with my wife and son, has been living in the UK for the past 13 years.
Enjoy travelling to Europe, especially Austria for Christmas, France in summer, and Italy anytime. That's just not possible from New Zealand, where Australia is 2.5 hours away and not that much different.
Love trying different food as we travel and have done cooking courses in Istanbul, London and Bangkok.
Really like meeting local people. AirBNB is a bit like New Zealand farmstays where as well as meeting your host, you stay in their house and even eat with them.
I work fro the BBC managing a team of IT Infrastructure Engineers looking after the servers behind the BBC's web sites.
