Carolyn and Chris are New Zealanders who spent 2018/19 living in Spain, moving from Wellington which had been our home base for over 36 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. Back now in NZ, we continued the housesitting lifestyle we enjoyed so much while abroad, taking the opportunity to explore and live in parts of NZ we have only visited briefly in the past and finding our new home base. We have settled in the sunny Bay of Plenty, enjoying a lifestyle block with land, views, a developing garden, 3 alpaca and starting a new venture running a small B&B. Here’s the link: Te Harinui
We are independent and active as we are now in our early 60’s and still hoping for more adventures while there are no pulls on our time with family commitments. Both our grown children are living and working in Mexico City and 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 2018/19 and further adventures and musings beyond that.
