We've still got a few possessions to collect from a 200-mile radius - despite two major culls it is amazing how much stuff we have, and how many things we still need!
We are so very pleased with this place which ticks all the boxes, and I think has the feeling of the best NZ hostels; without the lack of local transport or facilities, and without the crowd of smokers outside..
Still can't quite believe we can make plans for next year and beyond, and we took great pleasure in getting rid of all the packing materials, no more need to keep boxes! As I write the first lot of decoration is under way; although most of the house is from the 1980s there are a couple of walls left over from the original 1700s building so we are learning about breathable paint and how to acquire it without paying prices more suitable for gold-plating.
and so for now the journey, if not the adventure, is over. Although we're not ruling out an escape in the depths of winter... :-)
