Home again!

We have been home now for over a month and France seems a very long time ago. We are loving being back in our apartment in Chrischurch, New Zealand. The Spring weather has been challenging, a lot cooler than last year. We have had to contend with more earthquakes, although it has been further north of the South Island and Christchurch has come through pretty unscathed. From Hanmer though to Kaikoura and on up to Wellington things dont look good. We understand the trauma this has caused and really feel for those whose homes and businesses have been devastated.

But let’s look at the year that was, at least for us.

We travelled a lot this year and loved every minute of it. If we had to choose the top highlight it has to be our house sit in Cornwall. It was a wonderful experience and we were sad to say goodbye to the lovely dogs and cats entrusted to our care. And Cornwall. Wow, what a gorgeous part of the world! But it was all wonderful and we are very appreciative to have had such an amazing time and to be able to enjoy our nomadic lifestyle.

I have already booked our flights for next year. Christchurch to Paris via Singapore, over early May, and home at the beginning of October. We are thinking of taking the boat up to Paris and on further north. Who knows.

But until then it’s time to enjoy our amazing home of New Zealand in the Summertime. See you again in 2017 for our next adventure!

Alan and I divide our time between our apartment in Christchurch, New Zealand, and our 11.5m Dutch Cruiser, Silver Fern, on the canals in France. We started out hiring and eventually bought our boat in 2014. The two summers lifestyle is wonderful and we feel very lucky!
