You don't get your visa until you arrive in Canada they issue it at customs. But they may need proof of the above. Any way I need to run away and look at flights and such Cos IM GOING TO CANADA ...

In Hastings we visited two services that provide whanau (family) support. The first of these is at Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga from which a number of services and programs operate.

For the first 12 weeks these ...

... out quite close to the hotel so we weren't long getting back. The hotel has set hours when you are able to use the hot water for the spa pools; 7.30am-10am then 5pm - 10pm. It was 9.20pm when we got into the room, Hef practically ran back to fill the pool. So we quickly turned the taps on and the pool started to fill. It was literally chiming 10pm as thee after reached the top of the pool. Aaaahhhh, sit back and relax. It was relaxing too. After not having a very good ...
