Life is a Journey

We are a family of four who have exited the rat race to pursue a life of adventure in New Zealand. Living in an 8.5m Isuzu Journey Bus with New Zealand as our back yard we have learnt many life lessons which we hope to share¬†with you. With no 8 – 5 and any real set plans we have survived for over 2 years now. We have had challenging days and amazing days two never being the same. We have meet people from all walks of life and learnt there is more than one way to live life. Join us on and in our Journey as we continue to pursue this dream and be encouraged to follow your own. Remember…Life is a Journey!
