Meet Craig!

Our blog is just wonderful for bringing the most amazing people into our life, through our blog we recently became ‘pen pals’ with the Ray family.

Craig, Rachel and Myles live in the UK and they are currently on that journey of a lifetime and moving their life to the other side of the world. They have an amazing blog called One Way New Zealand so make sure you check it out and follow them on their incredible journey.
As Craig was coming to Wellington we made a point of meeting up, and on a beautiful sunset evening on Oriental Parade we had a wonderful meal at The Fisherman’s Table.

It amazes me how it is we can meet people from all walks of life and have so much in common, Craig is literally an amazing character, so much so he is coming to stay with us at the weekend and we are going to treat him to a trip to Martinborough, being a bit of a wine connoisseur I am sure he will enjoy that!

Anyway, we had a great time, it was fantastic to meet you Craig and we can’t wait to meet Rachel and Myles really soon!!!

  • […] In April 2008 Craig came and stayed with us, and not long after that him and his family made the fantastic brave move to Wellington from the UK, where we became firm friends. A few years later they decided to move to Warkworth in Auckland – we were going to miss them but we knew it would be a fantastic move for them. Since then they have settled nicely and it seems they have in fact found their perfect piece of paradise. […]
