Today’s post recognises the beginning steps of our life in New Zealand, which ultimately led to the adventures and travels we are now able to make in the Kiwi Blog Bus.
It’s an anniversay day for us.
Three years ago today we got very valuable blue stickers inserted into our UK passports – we were given permanent residence in New Zealand.
We had been here for five months (out of the six allowed as a tourist) and although Sam had a current work visa, myself and the three children were all due to leave the country if our permanent residence didn’t come through in time.
The relief, as you can imagine, was immense.
Especially as we’d already bought a house and shipped over all our personal possessions!
