Samenvatting

This tale recounts the development of a "strategic plan" that propels the author into the next stage of her working life - teaching ESL. By implementing the plan, she finds a job via the Internet and accepts a position in Auckland, New Zealand to teach English and accounting to Asians. During those six months, she experiences a thrilling and unexpected transition in her life as she gains a new perspective about life, love, and happiness from her ambitious students and the Kiwis who thrive in their small island country. Her solo adventure 'down under' takes place in the middle of a cold, wet winter. As the story unfolds, she becomes enveloped in teaching and in relationships with her new Kiwi friends. The account of this sojourn weaves in anecdotes related to the trials and tribulations of maintaining a bi-continental relationship with her husband. The narrative recounts travel experiences both within Auckland and to neighboring islands as well as exploration of the North and South Island.;Intermingled throughout are colorful tidbits that elucidate readers about the culture, the cuisine (recipes included), the Kiwi lifestyle, current issues in the country and a bit about Maori traditions/legends. In the telling of the story, many comparisons are made between Auckland and her hometown, San Francisco. A must read for anyone thinking of making a career transition or at one of life's crossroads, and especially those who wish to visit this fabulous country.
