New Plymouth Wind Wand

Our last stop in this region was New Plymouth. This is a port city that has taken the time and money to invest in some interesting art. It seems to be paying off. No tourists were coming to see gas plants or sports teams, but they were taking a look at the public art and museums, which were excellent. This 48 metre tall wand bends with the wind and is impressive to see.

Welcome to our travel blog. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to say, "I'm out of here?" Well we did, and in 2013 we made it a reality. We sold or gave away all of our possessions other than what fit in our luggage and we set off on an endless adventure. Part of our goal is to share our experiences with others and hopefully provide some information, motivation, or just a moments escape. The general idea was to look for a place that would be ideal to settle down in. However in the meantime it is about experiencing life in different countries amongst different cultures and learning how to understand and appreciate each other. A large part of our time is spent housesitting which provides an excellent opportunity to experience more of the "normal" neighbourhoods as opposed to the tourist locales. Though we make sure to enjoy those as well. So through plenty of photographs and a running commentary come and share with us our life on the road.
