As with many who choose to travel, the “white picket fence” lifestyle of home was not appealing so she sold her possessions and headed to New Zealand. Her blog is a mix of narrative writing, video diaries and photographs detailing her [...]
What started off as a sailing trip in the South Ocean has turned into an exploration of New Zealand in an old beat-up van for this family of three. Antonia, the family scribe, is a great storyteller, sharing their tales with a dry, witty style.
