We made it. After years of planning, weeks of packing and days of cleaning… it was time to leave our apartment in Central Auckland bound for the rest of the world. No send off would be complete, however, without the company of friends and family. We had a lovely evening drinking, eating and talking with friends, colleagues and family Friday week before our departure, a sumptuous dinner with my mum and dad the night before, and breakfast with my brother & sister-in-law and their gorgeous family the day of, our departure.

It has been a frantic few weeks packing up our old live and planning our new one and so what better way to start our trip that with a few days on the Sunshine Coast with Hana’s grandparents, aunt and uncle and cousin. Over the past few days it feels like we have had more sleep and been fed more food than in the entire last month. Indeed, I haven’t felt this relaxed since I spent 6 weeks with my family in southern Spain as a young teenager. It’s been so relaxing I have even picked up a novel for the first time since starting university 9 years ago!

Tonight (or more accurately at 2.30am tomorrow) we fly out for 48 hours in Singapore before heading to Lijiang, China. With much excitement and a little trepidation we attempt to repack our bursting bags before heading to Brisbane airport… where the intrepid part of our trip begins.
