Where are we now? What’s going on?

Living the dream – Raglan

So what’s the deal with the recent posts? Our stories seem to be scattered from New Zealand to Nepal!

We’re now on month 9 of our travels and have been settled into New Zealand since mid February, living mostly out of our van which we’ve lovingly named Jag. Yes, it’s the climbing, hiking and plain old bum lifestyle that’s always intrigued me…. paired with bouts of the extreme… Like washing down steaks with fine wine, dining at Auckland’s Sky-tower.

The nice thing about being settled is that we have a bit of time to reflect, and most of all……WRITE!

We have tons of stories, which we’d love to share with you and our hopes are to get caught up on some of these as we travel. Piece by piece, when inspiration and internet collide.

We’ve been through Thailand —> Nepal —> Thailand —> Laos —>Vietnam —> Cambodia —> Japan —> Philippines —> New Zealand… so far.

Lunchtime in Kaikoura

We’ve had friends and family recently come and go, and we’ve had the chance to connect with friends we’ve met along the way. Even though we’re a good 4 months away from being back to work, it feels as if the trip is on its home-stretch.

As fall turns into winter in NZ, and I look into heaters for the van. We’re planning a few more hikes, climbs and hopefully some “good ‘ole farming” experience. We’ll see where tomorrow takes us!

So bare with us as we spew our memories onto the web in whatever random order they happen to appear.

And look forward to more action, since we’ve booked our flight home for July…. Through the COOK ISLANDS, Los Angeles and San Francisco !!
