So today marks exactly half way through our New Zealand adventure. Up until quite recently we had left it open that we could decide whether to fly back to the UK at the end of August or not. We have now made our decision and have decided that we will be flying home then (we leave NZ on August 27th). It has taken much thought and deliberation and we have been thinking about it for some time and obviously New Zealand is an AMAZING place to visit and spend a year, but it is just too far from family and friends for us to consider living here for good. I just can’t imagine settling and having a family over here so far away from everyone and their support.
I have posted above one our favourite photos in one of our favourite places over here in NZ – Glenorchy – as we reflect on being halfway through our time here. We have done so many amazing things and still have loads of incredible things planned with the time we have left.
We will of course miss it loads and I know it will be really hard going home but we want to see going home as its own adventure with lots of exciting things still to look forward to in our lives. 🙂
