Seek Adventure Travel Happy
After we got home we had figured that our adventure had ended and that things would be boring and not nearly as exciting as they had been for the last 8 months. And to a certain extent that's how it's been. But life is still proving to be an adventure with obstacles. Although, instead of the obstacle being how to get our underpowered 21 year old van across a flooded bridge, it's more like finding jobs and a home to call our own. Pat has started school again, and I can proudly say that the university has found him to be as smart as I've always know he is. He's also been applying for every single part time job in town that he can, with no luck. I have also been papering the city with my resume with moderate luck. I found a full time job to replace someone that was leaving in a week. I started on Monday, and on Wednesday the person I was replacing decided that they didn't want to leave anymore. So my boss had to choose to keep the person who has been there for 6 years or 3 days. I'll let you guess how that turned out. But I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, now I just need to wait to find out what that reason is. We have had a wonderful time catching up with our friends and family. Pat and I have also had fun driving around and attempting to find a house. Right now we are living in my Dad's basement, which is nice, but we are excited about getting our own place too. But first things first, find a job! If anyone out there is wanting to hire a couple of displaced kiwis, just let me know.
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
