Absolutely not! Last place you want to come to. Why, when I was a girl there were 20 sheep for every person in New Zealand. Ah, those were the days I tell you. These days there's barely 10 and that's still dropping! Outrageous! By the time my baby girl is in school we'll be in single digits and then where will we be?! Fewer sheep, more people... Crammed in like sardines, that's where.
Next thing you know we'll have people outside Auckland living in apartment buildings. Vertical housing - ridiculous! Bad enough we've got 'townhouses' now.. *harumph*.. used to be it wasn't legal to build on less than a 1/4 acre section... now they build two places on it. *grumble* I hear sometimes even three.. *shudder*
In all seriousness, yes, probably a somewhat higher cost of living than many places, but the standard of living achieved for that beats the heck out of probably most places.
Come on over, the weather's fine.
