New Zealand so far

The view from National Park.

Hi everyone!
We have officially (and finally) arrived and settled in New Zealand. We are now back in National Park where we first met five years ago, and man it feels great to be back! On a sunny day, this place is something out of this world. The views are just stunning overlooking three volcanoes. The one on the right is where Ebba will be working in a few weeks time.

Before arriving here we spent a few days in Auckland sorting out tax numbers, phone numbers and most importantly getting to know Rosie. As some of you already may know, Rosie isn’t a person but our new and colorful van. We spent about a week living out of Rosie before arriving in National Park, and we love her already!

On the way down from Auckland we spent a few days visiting friends in Rotorua. We shopped a few necessary bits and went on runs and walks through the redwood forests and around a very pretty lake. A few very chilled out and nice days.

After Rotorua we decided to head south and drove to Taupo where we spent a night before heading down to National Park. The last two weeks here we’ve spent working, exploring and going for hikes, runs and mountain bike rides around the area in wait for the season to start and the snow to fall.

We know we have been silent for a while now, but we promise that we have heaps of stories from the past few weeks to share with you! Stay posted! ❤️
