About us

romantic Maldives sunset

Carolyn and Chris are New Zealanders currently living in Spain, after moving from Wellington which had been our home base for over 35 years and where we brought up our family. We have been involved separately and together in Christian fellowship, Christian camping, Harrier clubs, road and recreational cycling, snow skiing, volunteering with charity meals providers, neighbourhood gatherings, and much more.

We are independent and active as we approach our late 50’s and looking for adventure while there are no pulls on our time with family commitments. Both our grown children are living and working in Mexico City and Auckland, NZ and as there are no grandchildren on the horizon in the near future we see it as an excellent time to explore and take a risk on something completely new.

These pages document our “local” travels in 2017 and adventure in Europe in 2018.

  1. Hi Carolyn & Chris
    Nice to know there are others around that are just as crazy as us and are prepared to take the risk and see where the journey takes us.
    We will follow your blog with interest.
    Maybe our paths will cross in the future.

    Ann & Graeme
