In 2000 I travelled to Australia and spent a month there with a friend of mine who is also an expat South African. And I knew from then I wanted to live overseas.
When my parents got their residency for New Zealand it gave me the go to move here. I came over with my boyfriend also from Durban and we have been here a year and a half.
SA will always have a place in my heart, but New Zealand is my home now.
