June 2019: Life Update

Hi De Hi Campers…what the hell happened to June folks?!?!

Places I’ve Visited and Things I’ve Done this Month

So the month started with Afternoon Tea at the Cordis in Auckland…

…a trip to the Coromandel to visit the Whitianga Thermal Pools which were amazing…a tad expensive if I’m honest but wonderfully maintained with glorious cocktails…no photos allowed on the Girls Weekend Away so just a photo of the view as we left Coromandel…

…then a flight to the South Island to see if this could be my new home which I think it will be…I even looked at a few houses and found one that I really liked but we couldn’t agree on the price…if it’s meant to be, it will be…

Ex-Expat Update

I’ve finally closed down most of my life in the UK…it’s a weird feeling if I’m honest but also feels wonderful as it brings a lot of new beginnings in New Zealand.

New Zealand Life

Learning to embrace the four seasons in one day lifestyle of Auckland…from foggy mornings…

…to beautiful sunrises and sunsets…

…and to glorious sunshine all while its officially winter and hitting the mid teens each day.

This month I’ve also learnt the ropes on how to purchase a house in New Zealand…slightly different from England but when I put my next offer in, I’ll know exactly what happens.


A much better month…still room for improvement.

Health Update

Feeling a load better…just trying to avoid the numerous bugs that seem to be going around at the moment…these NZ bugs are bloody awful!

Plans for July

A trip to the Central North Island at the moment…but I feel like doing a weekend away somewhere in New Zealand…just have to figure out where.

So that was June 2019…over and out!
