Best Beloved and I have just spent 3 years living and working in the Netherlands. At the completion of Best Beloveds work there we rode our ordinary push bikes for 22 days from Haarlem in the Netherlands see oldfartexpats if a bit curious to Switzerland where our son lives.
While still in Europe we suffered brain fade and ever so crazily purchased a small lifestyle block in Miranda (viewed by our daughter) and sold our house in Auckland by auction.
Now we are retired and starting a new adventure – establishing a garden and orchard, plus chickens, a couple of beef cattle and/or sheep on a small steep block which includes a little piece of covenanted bush in Miranda.
It is a piece of paradise in NZ.
Are we crazy or what?!
