We’ve driven a total of 2,100 kms since 1/12/2015, eaten an estimate of 10 L of ice cream and me personally consumed 3+ kgs of mussels.
I’ve met with 10 different professionals from CEO’s, HR, Recruitment in the 10 days we were in Auckland. Travelled the train to and from Auckland central 6 times and each time it was pleasant, on time and most surprisingly empty.
We move into our new rental property in February and our shipment from the UK lands in Auckland on the 15th of Jan. The only thing missing is employment, but keep posted as there are a few irons in the fire already.
Here’s a quick summary of the last 33 days
1m grandma cuddles
a few hatched butterflies
a number of hangouts in the back garden
67 photos (taken by a 2 year old ) like this…
5 fish and chip meals
2,000 trampoline jumps
1 journey on the high seas
Mission Bay fountain swim
2 houses towed by boat
countless requests for playground action
1 successful New Years fireworks picture
Special mentions include:
The Warehouse for providing xmas presents
Bridgestone Tyres in Kaikohe for providing new rubber when we got a flat
Ra and Dave for putting us up in their whare
The weather gods for blessing us with sun and rain
Mum for helping me develop an app for te reo maori (nga puhi dialect, watch this space)
Nick's Dutch wife is mostly concerned about the quality of NZ chocolate and cheese.Hope we don't disappoint.
