Lost in Silver Fern Josie

Hello you!

Welcome to Lost in Silver Fern

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!

Lost in Silver Fern is an honest, no frills, expat, travel and Wellington life blog full of tips for moving to/travelling to or living in NZ (particularly Wellington.)

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

Thank you for being here and I really hope you will find something useful!

A little about me

I am Josie, I am 29 and from the UK. I moved to Wellington in July 2016 and after leaving life in 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.

If you’re keen to find out more about my reasons for moving to Wellington check out my post: Why move to New Zealand?

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 environmentally friendly and buying local products wherever I can. These are the Lost in Silver Fern values.
