Dear London…

A blog post. For our friends, family, and future selves. London, it’s been a fabulous two years but it’s time to say goodbye. It’s not you, it’s us. And UK border control. Truth be told, we’ve had a few opportunities to stay here longer but we’re looking forward to heading home. Our intention was always [...]

I love Venice

Easter, The Royal Wedding, and the rush to Escape London

We're back. Back to the rat race. Back to the daily horror of the tube and sky-high rent. Back to London. With the Royal Wedding being made into a public holiday and being so close to Easter, we found ourselves with a 10 day time period that only required 3 days off work. Jumping at [...]

The Wedding

Well we did it! After 18 months planning (or putting off planning as the case often was), Phil and I got married in Taupo on the 8th of January 2011. The ceremony was held at Huka Falls Resort where we were surrounded by 53 of our close friends and family. A huge thanks goes out [...]
