This week’s podcast is brought to you by me (Liz) and my husband Brian.
It is brought to you with love. And with wine and with sushi.
This is a different kind of podcast format from any other that we’ve done in the past (and, I won’t lie, it was slightly scarier).
Brain and I will talk about what’s on top for us right now. As parents. As husband and wife. As friends.
What share we are loving, what are we struggling with and how we are dealing with both.
I wish I’d read a post like this when we were looking to move to New Zealand ten years ago.
At least then I would have been prepared. I could have packed a hot water bottle and a sun hat and some hankies.
But I didn’t.
Instead, I got to the other side of the world and blubbed for six months about how my family never returned my calls and that the bathroom in the house that we were renting was cold and smelly and damp.
ouTube and I have one of those love-hate relationships. While Youtube is perfect for providing educational videos for kids, it can also be the reason why my housework gets put back another day. Having homeschooled two kids for the past ten...
Last week I received this email.
“Hi. I am thinking of moving to New Zealand with my family but I am concerned that as we are moving from the UK, my eldest son (who is 12) will be bored. Could you give me any advice?”
I have two kids, a boy age 18 (note to oneself, must stop calling him a kid) and a daughter who is 15.
We have been living in New Zealand for almost eleven years. We emigrated from the UK for a better way of life.
We found it.
If you had to pick just a few, which would you say were the most beautiful places in the world to visit?
This is a question that our family hears a lot when we tell how we spent twelve months travelling the world together (two adults and two teenagers) on a budget.
We visited thirty-three countries in total – all of them magnificent but some being crowned more beautiful than others.
Which were the most beautiful places on earth?
This is the question that everyone asks you when you tell them that you spent twelve months travelling the world with your teenagers.
That, and did they miss their friends?
This week, Sonny (my 18-year-old son) and I made a podcast episode that talked about our favourite places around the world and why they were considered by us to be deemed beautiful.
