    Hola Elena,
    soy frances pero vivo en españa desde 3 años ahora. Yo y mi novia estamos mirando para ir a vivir una tamporada, o más según como van las cosas, por nueva caledonia. Ella es española. Por favor, me podrías decir como va el tema de los papeles para ella, y de encontrar trabajo, es dificil para nosotros de europa? Bueno, todo lo que nos puedes decir nos irá bien... Estás viviendo allà aún?

    Hi Krisztina!
    I'm from Spain but I'm living right now in Australia but in two weeks I move on New Caledonia!
    Are you there?
    I would like to know if you have any problem for have a job, because I think for european people it's a little complicated...
    We have already a place to stay but I would like to stay for 3 months until christmas time and I need to look for a job.

    Do you know how it is? Thank youuuuuu so much

    Hi Dalia,
    Thanks for your letter, there are not too many people answering me, it seems that Caledonia is not a very famous destination. So it was a great pleasure reading your lines.
    My plan is to travel to Caledonia about October checking the atmosphere of life there, than maybe I try to live there if it seems a good choice for me. So first of all I try to get as many information as I can about the island.

    You mentioned the price of hotels and food are expensive. I think there can be cheaper opportunities also. What do you think? Are there supermarkets to do daily shopping?
    Is the French language necessary, or they understand English as well?
    Can I get a job with my English, what do you think? I heard that there are a huge work on protecting the environment, it can be a good starter point for a job, or I don't know...
    Do caledonian people accept Europeans?

    Now, okay, I try to finish asking you any more in this letter! :)
    Take care, Kriszta

    Hello, Krisztina, if my answer is not toooooo late: my husband was already there for a rather short business stay but we both will come there from January the next year and will stay for about 9 months. On that island will start huge (international) works for getting out a nickel (metal), so... a Life just will begin (or shall I write "will end") for that silent peaceful place. The prices for hotels and food are little higher than in Paris... I was said that local people are friendly. What else?..
