Live vicariously with us as we explore our adapted country of New Zealand. We are an American expat family with two teenage girls currently living about an hour from Auckland city, enjoying what New Zealand has to offer. We are active community members, involved with Girl Guiding, conservation and yacht racing.
This blog describes my experiences as a postgraduate student in moving to Christchurch, New Zealand, which is a city still in the process of rebuilding after its earthquake. I point out differences compared to both the U.S. and U.K. where I've lived previously.
We are husband and wife, heading out to trial life in NZ on Working Holiday Visas (trekking the Himalayas on our way). I'm a teacher and he's an IT geek and we both love hiking and photography.
Welcome to Just Popping Out for a Bit: a travel blog about a solo traveller from Yorkshire, UK. Searching for adventure, I have chosen to start my travels by doing a working holiday in New Zealand. This blog shares my experience and guides if you are considering starting your own adventure. Thanks for visiting :)
My life is full of excitement and adventures and I hope to share some of it with you. But life as an expat can also be an emotional roller coaster so hold on.
