    Default Flights booked - we're almost there

    We have finally booked the dogs and our flights and will be arriving in NZ on 9th October. After ten years of thinking about it, we're finally doing it. Hotel booked for the first two nights, transport soon to be booked as well as dog friendly accommodation for a couple of nights after the girls arrive.

    Just a few short weeks left in the UK now - it really is a bit frightening. It's strange how the whole process from starting to think about it seems to go on for years, then when you finally start the process, everything seems to go at 100mph! For anyone starting the process - be prepared - it suddenly hits you like a tonne of bricks!

    Hope I'll be able to meet up with some of you in NZ in the very near future.

    Not sure just yet - hoping to travel around a bit and decide once we're there - North Island though definitely.

    Hope to be seeing some of you soon! x

    Yes, I know what you mean about 100mph - at least once the visa is approved - and I have a whole month extra to prep!!

    We're in the same boat, we fly out on the 3rd and things were really running at break neck pace for the last month, although they've have slowed now that the container has been packed up and ready to go (currently sitting at Belfast dock - or so I'm told). Now its just sell the cars and enjoy the numerous leaving do's then pack up and go!! saying that I'm not coping well with only two pairs of shoes and one handbag!!! what is a girl to do!!
