Welcome Lost in Silver Fern…

Having spent quite a bit of time scouring the net for useful NZ/Wellington expat advice and finding very little, I decided to just do it myself and start this lil Expat/Travel/ Wellington Blog!

If you are looking for NZ travel tips, advice for moving to New Zealand or things to do in Wellington then you have come to the right place!

A little about me

I moved to Wellington in July 2016. After leaving London, I have slowly but surely learnt to love it in New Zealand. The nature, the fresh air, the people, the colors and the peaceful city of Wellington have so much offer.

Find out more about my reasons for moving to Wellington in my post: Why move to New Zealand?

What is Lost in Silver Fern all about?

Lost in Silver Fern is really about 3 things. The first is expat advice for those of you who are moving to New Zealand to help you navigate this long and sometimes complex process. It is also a blog for travel tips, sharing my advice and findings as I travel NZ and further a field. And the third category on Lost in Silver Fern is Wellington Life. Sharing tips, reviews, things to do and interviews with locals to share some insider info about my current home city.

The Lost in Silver Fern Values

To me, it is super important while travelling and through life in general to live as sustainably as possible. And this means, supporting local businesses, being envirnomentally friendly and buying local products whereever possible. These are the Lost in Silver Fern values.
