Yes we are still here and sorry about the length of time since I last blogged.
It took us several years to plan and organise our life aboard Narrowboat Gypsy Rover and we are now back at the same stage working out where we go from here. Where would we like to live? Our present home being on the top of a hill with very little public transport is not ideal. Travelling the country since our motorhome arrived back in October we have seen numerous places that have a certain appeal. We just have to weigh up the pro’s and con’s.
The decision in 2006 not to store our furniture but dispose of it seems to have been the right decision as we are now replacing the essentials with new gear which will set us up for the future. In the meantime a constant watch on Trade Me, and eventually we will find all the other little bits and pieces we would like. This week we move back home after 6 years, interesting!
With our 3 month South Island tour now behind us we have seen many aspects of life away from the big city lights. With the South Island being New Zealand’s largest land mass with less than a third of the population life is very different. Staying at a variety of places like A&P show grounds, race courses, farms, small holdings and private properties has been very interesting.
