About

This is our travel blog, originally set up so that our friends and family could keep track of us whilst on our round (or across as Rob keeps pointing out) the world trip. We set off from the UK in August 2010 for our first stop of India and headed west until we hit New Zealand. It was an amazing adventure and we couldn’t wait for the next one.

Everyone told us that once we started travelling, we’d get the bug: and they were right! After getting married in the UK with all of our closest people around us, we couldn’t help but wonder what to do next. In 2014 we packed up again, spent an amazing couple of months in Nepal (completing the Annapurna Circuit) and then headed to Wellington, New Zealand which we have decided to make home (originally just for a working holiday, but very quickly turned into a full-on work and residence visa operation).

We’ll keep using this space to share with our family and friends and fellow world travellers, what we are up to, and where we are wandering. I (Nic) am the writer, although Rob certainly contributes his opinion, and all of the photos we share are taken by one of us. If you click on the photo button in the top menu, you’ll see a load more on my flickr account. We also both share photos of our daily lives on instagram (links in the sidebar).

  2. Hi Guys

    The remaining pictures of your trip in India look amazing, what do all the little flags (if that is what they are) in one of the pictures mean??? I bet the sights sounds and smells especially near the Ganges were amazing and certainly an experience.

    I hope you both have a safe trip to Nepal and looking forward to seeing pictures of the old house and surrounding areas, been looking at my photos and reminiscing a little too.

    Nothing has changed here apart from the weather, had some rain but mornings and evening are certainly getting a bit cooler now and the colors of the leaves are beginning to fall and change, it will soon be time to go conker picking woohoo.

    Safe journey, love to you both xxxx

  3. Hello there

    You guys look like your having the time of your lives. New Zealand (Wellington) certainly seems to be ticking a few boxes for you. It must have been amazing to see some of the things from Lord of the Rings (got to be some of the best films ever). What do you think your chances are of moving to NZ now you have spent time there?

    The weather here is changing allot now, more grey days with rain and wind to go with it.

    I hope I’ll get chance to try Rob’s sushi on your return, take care
    Love Amanda

    P.s. Remember Nic that even if BORDERS is expensive there, if there is a good library that kind of balances things out especially if like England membership is free and you can borrow approx 10 books at any one time. Save money and still read as much as possible. I have joined my local library here as the amount I was spending on books was silly, its not a big library but if they don’t have a book in that I want they order it in and they arrive pretty quickly, BONUS! :o)

  4. Dear nica and rob,

    My name is Joyce and I work for ExpatFinder.com.
    ExpatFinder.com is a free one stop website for people preparing to move or working and living overseas. We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
    We quite enjoy your blog about living in New Zealand, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
    The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
    Thanks in advance and do let me know if you prefer other means to conduct this interview and we would be happy to accommodate your terms.

    Best regards,
    Joyce
