A Yurt in a Field with a Cow?

Sounds like a kid’s bedtime story, doesn’t it? Well, that is where you can find us right now.

How did we get here, you may ask. Well, here are some catch-up snippets and photos.

We got to New Zealand and drove a “transfercar” from Christchurch to Wellington.


You could almost hear them asking to hang out for longer. Well, if you couldn’t hear the seals you could hear the kids.

We made it up to Wellington before Christmas and did some “hanging around” with Sam, our long lost son who is being very responsible and going to University here.

Christmas was great at “Ngatiawa Camp”. We were here last year and made heaps of friends and they let us come back. Go figure.




While we were in Turkey we found a “Storm Damaged Yurt” on the online auction site and nabbed it. When we got to Ngatiawa they put up their Marquis for us to stay in

while we waited for delivery on one replacement part and made others. Quite a spacious home, a bit too spacious. : ) yurtup1br
