About Proud Kiwis Abroad

So, what is Proud Kiwis Abroad is all about?!

Hi there, I’m Katrina Murray, the founder of Proud Kiwis Abroad and I’m delighted that you’re visiting my page!

Do you remember those warm summer days in New Zealand, going down to the local swimming pool, bike riding with your friends, wearing bare feet (or jandals), lazy days and warm nights? Do you remember picking mushrooms, or daffodil day, spring lambs, taking your pet to pet day at school or listening to Split Enz, Ardijah, Katchafire or The Black Seeds on the radio?

Do you remember ice on puddles, wearing gumboots to school and crunching through frosty grass, freezing southerly winds, snow on mountain tops?

Do you miss time spent with friends and family?

Me too – and these are some of the things that I loved most about growing up in New Zealand – and things I miss most now that I don’t live there anymore.

I know you get homesick because I do too.

And that’s why Proud Kiwis Abroad exists!
