The next adventure…..

We are off, it’s been a year! We have officially been in NZ for a year and it’s time for us to say goodbye and embark on the next adventure which we are so excited for!

We have loved every second of our NZ experience there have been many highs and some lows but we wouldn’t change it for the world. I am so happy that we can say we made the most of every experience and seen so many amazing things whilst here.

We have been made to feel so welcomed by everyone and were overwhelmed by everybody’s kindness to help when we arrived. We have made some brilliant memories and some even better friends who know they are welcome to visit the UK whenever they wish. I want to say thank you to each and everyone one of you – especially my colleagues who have become good friends at Opus.

It was a major highlight for both of us to have both our families and Stacey and Zach came to visit – you guys made our time here and we are so grateful you got to see the country we have called home for a year.

We always talked about living abroad but I don’t think deep down I ever thought we actually would but I am so glad we did! I am so grateful the opportunity came along when it did, which was 100% the right time for us, and the whirlwind that followed didn’t leave me much time to worry about actually moving here (a great advantage for a born worrier).

NZ we love you but it’s time for us to move onto the next adventure…. A 7 week trip home which includes;

  • Australia
  • Indonesia
  • Singapore
  • Malaysia
  • Poland

I hope to blog on the way and keep you undated in real time like I did for our South Island trip. A rough trip route is shown in the picture below (obviously minus Poland) where we meet my family !!!!


Thank you to everyone and thank you for everyone who has read my blog for the year I have been a way. This is getting a bit soppy now so I am off- first stop SYDNEY!

Love you all,


P.s I am keeping the name Northerner in NZ, I couldn’t bring myself to change it now 🙂
