It is with sadness that we are leaving this country that we’ve really come to love and appreciate. New Zealand has treated us well and we’ve really enjoyed being here.
At least for Panama, Ecuador, Argentina, and Germany (other countries where we’ve lived in one place longer than two weeks) we’ve learned when it’s time to leave.
When it’s time to leave a country is when we’re at the point where we’re ready to go, but not ready to leave.
That’s the reason we didn’t leave New Zealand in September 2010. We just weren’t ready to go.
We’re ready to go now, but not ready to leave.
There’s a big section of the world calling us, and not a lot of time to see it in, since we are meeting up with family in June, in Italy.
This gives us 4 months to see Southeast Asia and India.
(For those new to our site, our work travels with us wherever we go, as most of what we do professionally is taken care of via having an Internet connection.)
Our travel plans have us traveling a route from New Zealand to Singapore, then on to
- Hong Kong
- Hong Kong
and then flying on to India, where we will be for 5-6 weeks before heading on to Italy.
This will be the most countries we have traveled to in such a short amount of time, and will include a host of new countries for both of us.
It will be quite exciting!
Work has kept us pretty busy here in Auckland, which has been good, but has meant less time spent keeping our site up-to-date with what we’ve been up to.
We will be working to get back to our regular updates as we’re traveling.
So yes, we are leaving New Zealand for now.
It is sad.
But we’ll be back New Zealand.
We’ll be back.
Thanks for continuing to come along as we travel the world!
