On the 4 February 2000 Clair chose to migrate from Yorkshire, England to New Zealand. In England the weather in Winter was very cold and snowy so cold sometimes their school had to be canceled and the weather changed so quickly they could never prepare so it would be hot, cold, sunny or snowy. She worked at the air port for three years and it wasn't that enjoyable and she always had to work 24/7 through the weekends.
I miss my family so much!
Some of her friends who had the same work job and had moved to New Zealand and said that it was really good here and that they were going to stay in New Zealand for many more years.
wow! Thank you so much for letting me stay here
So in january 2000 clair quit her job and caught a 24hr Qantas flight on 4 february 2000 she was excited and nervous. She traveled to New Zealand alone but was meeting her friends at the airport.
I cant believe that your here, It has been so long!
Once she arrived she found some challenges like like missing her family and friends, struggled to understand the accent people had here and found it hard at first to meet new people.
Luckily her friends let her stay with them in their house in howick for a year so she could get settled in and they could show her around. She got a job in howick pretty easily so she began to meet new people and friends.
New Zealand for clair was much nicer than the place she lived in England and suited her life style much better. Her mum visited her during the year she lived here and now she goes back to england every year to see her family and friends
