Flat Hunting

It has been a wee while since our last email. Our excuse is that nothing much had happened, and then when stuff did start happening we didn’t have an Internet connection (and we didn’t want to go to an Internet Café). Flat hunting turned out to be a small nightmare, we kept on missing out […]

Living in London

The weather has really humid the last week, by the weekend it was staring to rain as well. We went for a walk up Charing Cross in the rain (the rain/drizzle wasn’t to bad as it worked to cool down the skin from the really annoying humidity) checking out the large number of bookshops ’till […]

Karyn & Brian go to Crete

Karyn & Brian came back from their holiday in Crete and brought the nice weather back with them. Since Maree & Scott had been gone for so long, a BBQ was in order for people to catch up. So here we all were in the middle on London having a typical antipodeans BBQ (6 Kiwis […]

South Kensington walking

They are crashing here until the find a place to live (they moved the following weekend, so Karyn & Brian only had a house full of Kiwis for a few days). We considered checking out […]

We figured since we were in the City, with […]

Job Hunting

Right, we’re in London and we notice that our poor old NZ $ doesn’t quite go as far. This means we have to find work – what a mission that will turn out to be, at least for one of us anyway. The week following our visit to Camden markets started our job hunting. This […]

The first Melbourne days

Hello, We’ve been here in Melbourne for just over four days now. Melbourne is a lovely place (the perfect weather helps of course). We’re staying with Steve and Chris at their apartment on the edge of the central city. We nearly didn’t make it at all, we went to the Flight Centre in Whangarei the […]

Up in Whangarei

Hello, We have installed ourselves in Whangarei safely – there’s still a lot of redistribution of boxes and other stuff but it should be easy from here. The cats survived the trip well enough, no real complaints. They seem to have adapted to the new environment no problem. We took them for a bush walk […]
