It’s A Drama Podcast.

The idea for this podcast was thought up by my son on a flight from Bangkok to new Zealand. “why don’t we start a podcast telling people what it is REALLY like to travel the world with two kids”.

And that was that.

As is mostly the case with any new project that I undertake, I believe the ‘let’s just do it and see how it goes’ approach is often the best.

And that’s what we’re doing. It’s code for winging it.

So here we are. A teenage boy (who is far to laid back for my liking) and his middle aged but-no-way-does-she-look-it mother (who laughs like a miner and interrupts far too much) duo, talking about world travel, adventure and being a stronger family unit.

In a world crammed with digital media that promises social interaction it is a sad fact that more and more families feel disconnected form each other.

This podcast was born to help everyday normal families like you and me see that reconnecting with the ones you love through travel, adventure and conversation is easy peasy.

Well, ok then. Maybe not easy peasy, but quite peasy, very easy and most importantly – fun!

Which is just as well.

Because some of these common misconceptions about what life is like in New Zealand are quite frankly hilarious.

Food in New Zealand. Delicious Or Dull?

Food in New Zealand. Delicious Or Dull?

The food in New Zealand is not very well documented, is it?

When we made our move to New Zealand from the UK over a decade ago, I was expecting to get here and be faced with a plate full of lamb chops and maybe a kiwi fruit for dessert.

But the reality couldn’t have been further from the truth.

Moving to New Zealand From The US. What’s it (Really) Like?

Moving to New Zealand From The US. What’s it (Really) Like?

In all the time that I’ve been writing this blog I have never had so many emails from people (mostly from the US) asking me how they can make their dream of moving to New Zealand become a reality. 

✔︎ Get instant access to my FREE Moving to and Living in New Zealand Guide HERE!, a 5 Day Video Series! 

My family and I have been living in New Zealand for eleven years. We emigrated to New Zealand from the UK eleven years ago and it was the best thing we ever did.

But the posts and podcasts that I share with you here, things such as what you will miss when you move to New Zealand and life in New Zealand with kids,  are given from the point of view of a Brit.

And that’s not much use to the Americans in the audience.

So what did I do? I hunted down a real-life American who had emigrated to New Zealand, that’s what I did.

Living in New Zealand With Kids. 3 Undisclosed Benefits

Living in New Zealand With Kids. 3 Undisclosed Benefits

If you are thinking about making a new life in New Zealand and you have a family (with little kids) then I’m going to take a wild guess and say that you are a teeny bit, massively a lot, downright scared.

Or at the very least apprehensive.

You lay awake in bed, probably at 3 am, worrying about what your future life in New Zealand will look like once you move to the other side of the world with your family.

Ask yourself if you really will be living the dream in New Zealand or whether you’re making a big mistake and will be attacked by tigers and lions and kiwis who live in down under land.

Unplugging: 7 (Simple) Ways To Snatch Back Precious Time

Unplugging: 7 (Simple) Ways To Snatch Back Precious Time

I’m not entirely sure how long the term unplugging has been a thing.

It used to be (back in the day) that if you were told you to unplug it was because your parents were trying to save money on the leckie bill.

Someone once told my dad that if you unplugged the toaster, you’d save 5p on every bill.

But nowadays, the term unplugging comes with a whole new meaning.

Unplugging in 2020 means getting off the internet, stop watching so much telly and telling your son to look up from his phone so that his neck doesn’t develop a permanent turtle shell shape.

Trusting Strangers Online. Nervy or Naive?

Trusting Strangers Online. Nervy or Naive?

Maybe I’m naive.

Or slightly twisted.

But when I found out that there was an organisation called couchsurfing that would allow me to travel the world with my teenagers (for free) while meeting other like-minded people,  I jumped at it.

Yes, it would mean that we’d be sleeping under the same roof of complete strangers, maybe even on a couch, but we’d get to know interesting people and listen to stories that I hadn’t heard a thousand times before.

And who knows? They might even invite my teenagers to stay for a few years.

Working For A Year In New Zealand

Working For A Year In New Zealand

If you have always dreamt of living in New Zealand, are under 30 years old and have a bit of dosh saved up (enough to get you back to your own country) you can spend a year working in New Zealand by getting yourself a year-long working Visa.

That way you can see how you like it.

This weeks podcast episode features Adam, a twenty-something chappy from the UK is doing just that.

After being persuaded by his mate to leave Thailand and come to New Zealand to work on a fairground, he got himself a year-long working visa and headed down under.
