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. I'm very much looking forward to treasuring my new wife forever. Thank you everyone that helped on the day as well as the days leading up. The day went perfectly and that's thanks to everyone that helped us out. Everything from running errands,...Read more »
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.
Busy packing up for the road trip to Takaka for the wedding... Looking forward to getting on the road in the morning. I'm not sure how we're going to fit everything in the car, but rest assured that we'll get the essentials in there. Like the frisbee, oh, and Nicky's dress of course.Read more »

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...Read more »
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...Read more »
When you think about it, this would make a great wedding song, right? We're organising a sober driver and van to ferry people to and from the Engagement Party instead of everyone bringing their own sober drivers. This might involve a $5 donation. 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...Read more »
Hehe thanks for putting up this website Rick it is a great little touch while we spread across the country (and or beyond).
