People sometimes ask me why I am leaving New Zealand to go to live in Paris.

It’s a difficult one…

Looking first at what I have here in NZ; A nice house in a nice 120px-Mount_Maunganui_and_beachsuburb close to the beach, with a favourable climate and relaxed lifestyle. I have a great job working for a good company and a generous salary.




I will be going to a city with a population twice that of NZ. I will have no fixed income. I speak little of the language. I will know nobody. 



I think the reasons are thus as follows: Adventure, excitement, uncertainty, challenge, change.

I know the reasons may not be particularly rational or responsible, but they are reasons nonetheless.

I will miss what I leave behind, and look forward to what lies ahead…
