Flying Halfway Around the World & Old Friends

Hi Everyone!

T and I made it safely and in comfort to New Zealand. We really lucked out on the flight over. We ended up having our own row on the plane, and that row happened to be Air New Zealand’s “sky couch” product. We had a cozy little bed to sleep on and an hour shorter than normal flight! Win, win in our books.

After arriving in Auckland, we went through the thorough customs search because we had some camping gear with us, and they are very strict about your gear being clean so as to not contaminate their natural environment.

After taking a bus to our hostel, we went across the street to a little cafe called Fred’s for a delicious cappuccino and a snack befoe we could get into our room. Definitely a great and delicious way to help with the jet lag!

A Cause for Celebration!

Hi Everyone!

There have been a lot of changes happening in our world over the last few months, and yesterday was a big day for us. We have been in the process of changing our priorities, and getting ready to uproot our lives so that we can move closer to the beach. We both love the beach and the type of lifestyle living near it will create for us. This decision to re-locate to a place more fitting for what we want out of life¬†influenced us to apply to new jobs in San Diego. We have been going through the job application process for months, but it looks like my husband is about to secure his job there (we’re keeping our fingers crossed).
