No we didn't fall off the end of the world. We are in Serbia and having a great time. Sorry for any inconvenience.
So here we are, still, hanging out with patient Al and Anita. They keep assuring us we are not wearing out our welcome but we are not sure if they are just being nice. We are working on our truck through the New Zealand winter. Maybe not the smartest. Right now as the wind is […]
The family has now dispersed just a little bit more. We came into Wellington three weeks ago to send off another young adult of ours to the other side of the world. Lizzy flew away on Easter Sunday to go to Texas. In Texas she will go to the wedding reception of a very dear […]
We arrived in Motueka and pulled the truck onto a field at Riverside Community in Lower Motuere. Really nice people here. Riverside is probably the oldest intentional community in New Zealand, being started by Methodist pacifists in 1941 and now operating as a multi-faith community on 500+ acres. Last weekend was the Riverside Music Festival. […]
Started working at the Waipara Hills Vineyard yesterday as a ‘seasonal worker’. We are trying something new. Me and Andrew are working at the vineyard while TJ ( who now wants to be called Tim Tam now) and Hannah ( who now wants to be called Gwennie) are across the street at the camp in […]

A lot of people ask about entrance into university when the kids get older and we finally had […]
Portugal really is one of our favourite countries. Silves is one of those old, historic, windy-narrow-cobblestone-roads kind of city that makes a great experience. One of my fondest memories is getting my haircut as my Christmas gift. We were really broke but we all had 5 Euros each to get a present.My present was an […]
Nothing to do with the bats we saw in Transylvania but rather with the fact that this weekend Hannah (who is now 15) is working with me (Andrew) to REVAMP the Jonesberries blog. We plan to get rid of the 3 year old theme and install a new one that is more responsive to mobile […]
Its apple picking season so we are at Hawkes Bay getting jobs for the people in our crew. Time to make a little bit of money. We are staying with Jack and Lynne in Taradale, near Napier, who has a carpet cleaning business.
We are headed over to the Organic River Festival. Its our first time at this “holistic” festival and I think we will have a good time here. Not sure about the wifi situation there so we might pop off the grid again for a few days.
