Rick & Nicky

13 Feb 2012

Yup, we're getting married... cool uh?

Welcome to our blog. This is for road trips and all of our other adventures. Our next one coming up is our wedding. We can't wait. Once the wedding is over and we get some of this magical free time we might even add some of our previous adventures to this site.

This blog is very much an experiment... so things will break from time to time, so if you see anything broken, let me know.

We're back, AND MARRIED!

Hi everyone, we're back AND MARRIED. Everyone keeps asking me what it feels like. It doesn't feel much different, just like before but better.

The day went perfectly and that's thanks to everyone that helped us out. Everything from running errands,...

Golden Bay Floods and Pohara Accommodation

In recent weeks Golden Bay (and the wider Nelson/Bays area) have had massive rainfalls and severe flooding. We're happy to hear that despite all the destruction to property and people's livelyhoods that nobody has lost their life. We also heard that Pohara Beach Top 10 Holiday Park (where most people have booked their accommodation) had more than a couple of cabins affected by the muddy...

Engagement Party Success

Engagement Party Success

The Engagement Party was a raging success and everyone had a great time. We'd like to extend a huge thank you to everyone for coming along, brought some magnificent food, and also for all the generous gifts. It was great to see folks mingling and meeting one another. Since both of them are always so good for a yarn I got a little worried when I saw Roger and my Dad talking. They could be...

If you're interested in this, leave a comment and we'll organise a pickup schedule for the night. p.s. We're looking for another sober...
