To be writing this feels surreal. We have been waiting to go to New Zealand (which is Justin’s home country) for so long that I felt like it wasn’t going to happen anymore. We knew we wanted to go for a much longer time than our last stay (which was only about 3 weeks, 3 years ago), so that meant a lot more planning and (for me at least) a lot more worries.
After both getting our drivers license (yeah, we’re a little late to the game) we quit our jobs, moved back in with our parents and finally booked some tickets!
I set up this website so I could update our family, friends and anyone else interested.
