After ten years in the UK for Ben and six for me, we are moving back to our dear New Zealand. We are returning with a hefty piece of carry-on baggage, our wee boy Arthur who is 7 months old at the time of writing. We are ready to give up lengthy commutes, face-licking bus strangers and the architectural wonder that is pebble-dash. But we also have to give up our wonderful UK families, history, springtime (nice every year), travel and Saturday Kitchen. Because we felt we weren't quite busy enough with finishing work, selling our house and packing up our lives to ship across the world, we embarked on last minute trips to Spain, Austria and Ireland.
We always thought we'd do one last trip on the way home and so we fly to the US for a cross-country adventure from Washington DC to San Francisco in an RV (that's a campervan for you kiwis). We hope you enjoy sharing our travels as we attempt to be relaxed parents while sharing a confined space with an infant for five weeks. Roads, deserts, grizzly bears and Big Gulp... we are so excited!
