Three weeks in Dunedin turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise. From museums to excellent food, we had a great time exploring the city and minding Nathaniel the cat!

Only 364 day until Christmas 🤪 only kidding!

Don’t worry I won’t bombard you with Christmas anymore after this post. I just wanted to show you and say ‘thank you’ to my friend Cath for these lovely decorations she gave me for Christmas. They are a lovely addition to our tree. I hope everyone had a great Christmas Day celebration wherever you are, particularly to our friends Clem and Jim who unfortunately are in lockdown on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Let’s hope theses restrictions can be eased by New Years Eve. Happy Boxing Day everyone.

It’s Christmas!

Well here we are...Christmas Day 2020!
This has certainly been quite a year. It may not have turned out to be the year any of us had planned but it hasn’t all been doom and gloom. Sure, there has been some challenging times during the year but on the whole it has been a year where we have been able to reconnect with family and friends after being overseas for the best part of four years.
We know and appreciate that for some, this year has been a struggle, but hope we have been able to be a support in one way or another.
For us, whilst we haven’t been able to do any travel outside of Australia, it has given us the opportunity to explore our own city and surrounds over the past nine months. It’s amazing what you can discover in your own backyard if you set your mind to it.
Who knows when we will be able to travel again but in the meantime we will make the most of what we are presented with in the near future.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year for 2021.
Take care and stay safe.
Cheers
Christopher and Andrew ❤️🎄🎅🏼
