Moving house!

No we are not moving again!

But moving house in New Zealand takes on a whole new meaning! To a another New Zealander or even Australian this is something common but not to those of us coming from Asia.

In New Zealand, one can actually buy a piece of land called a section, and then go to a yard and buy a house off the "shelf"! they then transport the house of your choice to the land you own and plant it there for you. Then fix the plumbing and electricity and bingo! You have a house to live in.

Strange but true!

This is a picture of a yard near a town called Bulls north of Wellington!
