Kia ora from a Scot in NZ

Hi folks

Just doing the polite thing by introducing myself before posting on your forum.

I'm a mature scot who moved to NZ 7 years ago thinking the grass might be greener. Now moving on, no idea where yet, but planning to head back to Scotland to retire.....eventually. I need one last adventure first

Looking forward to being a small part of your forum.

DB

Thanks for the welcome kathyv

MikeyBoab, Lived and worked in various regions but mostly Perth, Dundee and Fife area. Some links with Glasgow but only through relatives. Love the city though. When I eventually return I hope to retire near the west coast...... providing I can suffer the midges.

That's the one thing I don't miss about home!! In all seriousness - Avon skin-so-soft spray is the best repellant I've ever known and no, that is not a wind up!

Will keep that in mind. Was reminiscing yesterday whilst sorting out the stuff I will be taking with me when I leave.

Found my old green cap with the bit of netting that folds down over the face. I used to wear it to prevent breathing in clouds of midges as I walked the dogs around the loch at Kinross. Not many midges in NZ, just loads of irritating mozzies and sand flies. Wasps huge, but never been stung yet, but stung by a poisonous spider on my first christmas day here. I think I'd rather have the midges.
