CURRENT LOCATION: Auckland, New Zealand
We've certainly had a busy few days! As we recovered from the shock of the evil satsuma winning the US election, we were back to the drawing board for our immediate future plans. While we both firmly believe that the majority of the US people aren't bigoted idiots, it doesn't seem like the best time for us to move there and start a life. This doesn't mean it won't happen - it just won't be happening next year.
And so we had a decision to make. Where to from here? Obviously, we both love travelling, and had an incredible time on our honeymoon. And we like to think that for a first time trip, we did a pretty great job. Why not do it again? We still have so much to see, and we learnt so much on our last trip that we'd definitely be better at it. Plus we don't have a trip to worlds and a wedding to fund while we save.
So here we are. Planning another trip. Filled with the same excitement and nervousness as last time.
In light of what we learnt from our last trip, we've decided to start by upgrading our blog - so here is our new home!! We had so much trouble with our blog on the last trip, and we couldn't put any photos on it, so we've decided to shell out for a blog that lets us do more. And we'll start by uploading our old blog posts, complete with photos (and editing to fix spelling and grammatical errors!), so that we've got everything in one place. We're also thinking about making some posts about the actual planning of our trip this time. As much as we loved flying by the seat of our pants last time, this time, we've decided to keep that flexibility, but with a little more budget planning to make sure we don't blow out like last time!
Anyway, know this won't interest everyone, but hopefully, occasionally, you'll check in on us while we're away to make sure we're still alive.
Lots of love,
S & Z
