    Wonderful story on the site about how the business was set up following a 5 year stint living over there with their 3 boys. Also fab NZ bedding products. Can genuinely vouch for the underblanket which has sorted my 5 yr old boy’s consistent overheating at night despite no central heating in cold house on a hill on North Wales/ Shropshire border! But the story is nevertheless charming.

    Hi there as a native Kiwi who has lived in Australia, Fiji and NZ and now living in the UK would you like me to guest blog post some ideas about where to go and what to see? A Vegemitevix’s travel plan??

    Hi Victoria — thanks for your recent nice comment on our family blog’s New Zealand posts. Given the ages of your kids, I think you’d enjoy staying at NZ holiday parks, some of which have a lot of fun things for kids to do, and if you get to Nelson, I recommend Harris Hill cottages (though it’s a 10 min drive to town). The details and pics are in the New Zealand category of http://away-together.com. Good luck with your planning! Also, keep in mind that if you are planning to be in NZ during the country’s December – January summer holiday break, then reservations are needed a few months in advance for a lot of places, especially after Dec. 20 when most schools go on break.

    Hi, I’m a British expat who has been living in Wellington since 1997, along with my British husband and our 3 Kiwi born children. Happy to help with any information you might require. All the best for your travels, Sarah and family
