Abstract The book presents an empirically grounded reconstruction of the migration process ? emigration and immigration - of contemporary German migrants from their own perspective. In an inspiring story, the authors show how migrants developed their dream to migrate, how they enlivened this dream, and how they started their new life. The story also gives insights into the various challenges migrants faced as they realised their dream, the benefits they gained, and how they chose the path most conducive for the fulfilment of their future dreams. Throughout the story, the psychological and social factors that contribute to health/well-being or to distress, and that influence the decision whether to stay in New Zealand or to return to Germany, are made explicit. Although the migration process is exemplified by the experiences of German migrants to New Zealand, the book will also provide a valuable resource for people who intend to migrate or have already migrated from Western countries to New Zealand or Australia. Family members or friends of migrants, migration advisory agencies, counsellors, policy makers, migration researchers and qualitative researchers may find this book of value too.
