    I agree actually. And I told him so - he got funnier with having a kid, so I reckon if he goes back for 2nds, he'll be back online as Krusty the Clown

    I'm currently learning what the pre-med students are learning in regards to anatomy (why the fuck do I need to know about the pelvis?) and also potentially what first year education students learn in regards to communication, literacy, behaviour disorders and ALSO pretty much the first year of a linguistics degree. And a little bit of Treaty of Waitangi thrown in for funzies.

    I had a friend who traveled the world doing this - she was English, but did 12 months here, and 12 months in Aussie - her OE. She didn't have alot of friends and I reckon it was her job. My wife reckons it was cos she was ginger, so you've got a 50/50 chance of not being a complete loser?

    I could (and most likely will have to) but according to my dad it'd be easier on my British one.

    I'm not sure that there's >6months left on my NZ one either.

    You get 3 months on your Kiwi passport - so depends on how long you want to visit.
    It makes no difference for a holiday... I use which ever one is handy for holidays. And it's way cheaper to renew your NZ one.

    It also takes way less time. It took my best friend nearly 6 weeks to get hers.

    God you're on to it.

    Right, well it looks like I'll be using my NZ one for this visit but I still need to renew my British one because I'll be over there for more than 3 months at the end of this year.

    Don't really know what you mean, but if you've got coffee and cake in the pantry, you have my permission to go wild?

    Not really but I have both passports and have had to juggle both while travelling through Europe.

    Although I got yelled at while leaving Heathrow (to come home) for not travelling on my UK passport, but I needed to travel on my NZ passport because I was on a one-way ticket home (part of the deal of oneway tickets), but my NZ passport didnt have an entry stamp in it, because I entered on my UK Passport. The guy had to back off in the end - I dont know why they dont just create a notificiation based system where you can travel on either/or and it recognises your UK Citizenship.

    Tangent.
