After three years of saving and planning (probably not quite enough of either) the day finally came to leave on our journey. In the weeks leading up to this it was time to say goodbye, to friends, family, pets, places and all things familiar.
It was with a heavy heart that we boarded the plane to Wellington for a long weekend of Beer tasting and general gluttony. Who am I kidding? We were practically skipping with joy, well I actually was. Ben expressed his enthusiasm through the medium of not being asleep—despite the early morning flight. As we stepped out onto the tarmac at Wellington airport we said goodbye to the budget and hello to deliciousness!
