Winter in Auckland - 6 Month Update

We are proud to announce that we have made it to the 6 month mark of our travels. The time has gone by very fast and we are ready for more… (Ear muffs for the parents). It is now winter in New Zealand and although it is cooler, it has a long way to go if it wants to compete with Canada!

We are almost at the end of “Operation Work & Save” in Auckland, and so we thought we would let you know what the next phase of our travels will look like:

  1. High five each other…maybe add a high kick in celebration (we didn’t really know how long we’d be gone for and are pretty proud of ourselves)
  2. Give ourselves a well deserved 2 week vacation in FIJI
  3. Hop onto the STRAY travel bus and see all of New Zealand– this will take at least 28 days. It is a ‘hop on/off’ concept, so if we like a location we can stay longer.
  4. Pack our things and move on to Australia. At this point in time we plan to start in Sydney, travel for a short while - see the outback, and then set up with work. Yuck… we hate the `W` word.
