Kevin and I are in our 50’s and taking a year out from work to travel. We want to live life at a slower pace for a while, make our own schedule, play by rivers and on beaches and in the bush, cook our own food and try to live more sustainably, and generally learn more about NZ’s nature and history.
We’ve had some lovely long years at work with few breaks and thus have enough money to keep ourselves going, if we’re careful. I’m already in love with the lifestyle, and it’s barely yet begun.
We are travelling around in a small caravan so we can park up, detach, and go driving in just the vehicle along trickier roads for more sight seeing.
