Hello, we are the Rays, Craig, Rachel and Myles our son. In September 2007 we are starting out on a trip / holiday of discovery to travel through New Zealand in order to find out more about the country, the people and its culture. After spending all our lives in the UK we are eager to find out if our lives could be better in another country? Is New Zealand somewhere we could emigrate to - we will endeavor to find this out along the way, and will record our thoughts and feelings of New Zealand and what we think it has to offer.
In the process of putting this blog together we have decided also to try and bring together lots of information on the different regions, towns and cities of New Zealand. Information on immigration, travel, places to stay etc. We also plan to produce a weekly podcast featuring some of the people we meet on our travels.
All of this, in the hope that this site will become a valuable resource for others to find out more about New Zealand.
The flights are booked - feel free to travel along with us!

Useful things we travel with...
Myles's chariot! What a fantastic piece of kit. Bought this in the US after seeing it in Canada. It's a stroller, an off road buggy with suspension, a cycle trailer and you can even put skis on it! Wouldn't go anywhere without it - You can find out more and see it in action here
Our Travel Insurance
Used World Nomads for our annual policy for quite a while - They were recommended by Lonely Planet and Rob (Our global travelling friend!) also uses them - Good enough for him then it's good enough for us! Not sure if they are the cheapest but you do get what you pay for.

We use a Canon Ixus camera for all the photos and videos on the site. The size and quality is unbeatable - a great travelling stills and video camera in one! We got ours from Amazon because of their good returns policy and the online reviews from other users-Amazon reviews on this camera
Car Hire Worldwide
We've used loads of car hire companies over the years and we keep on coming back to auto-europe. They are usually the cheapest worldwide and the price includes all insurance / CDW etc,
Brilliant multi-tool. Built like a tank and small enough to fit anywhere. Wouldn't leave home without it - Got us out of a few 'sticky' situations.
We got ours from Ready To leave.com

Spring Has Sprung
Today was the start of Spring festivities at the Wellington Botanical Gardens. The tulip festival kicks off the spring season of events here and what a stunning sight to see such amazing colours after the winter.
We met up with our friends Sandi, Sean and their daughters - Keely and Amber and here you can see Myles and Keely just enjoying being around the tulips and in each other's company. The just get along so well and are both full of energy and joy. It's always great to see them having such fun!
On days like this is just reminds us how right our decision was to move all this way. We are really starting to spread our wings and meet some lovely people along our journey as fledgling Kiwi's - exciting stuff - can't wait for more adventures in the Land of the Long White Cloud or Godzone as it's also referred to!

Help Exchange www.helpx.net
A great way to experience real life in New Zealand with Kiwi families across the country. You can help them out for a few hours each day with whatever jobs need doing about their homes and in exchange they provide free accommodation and meals. It's a brilliant cultural exchange for international visitors to meet locals and visa versa.
