Wow this feels weird. It's been two years since I've logged into this (to be honest I'm surprised I remembered my password) but here I am. As I semi-hinted at in my last post, I am returning to blogging, but in a different capacity - I think I always knew what the next step was for me and the time has finally come for it to play out.
Anyway, let's keep this short, I'll run you through the changes from the last couple of years:
- Firstly (and I think, most importantly) Jeremy and I have transitioned to a vegan lifestyle. We're not without our mishaps (nothing worse than discovering hidden ingredients AFTER you've consumed them) but we do our best and it's something we've grown to be incredibly passionate about. We're not preachy, but we're open to discussion if people ever want to chat about it (not argue). In short, our reasons are for the planet, the animals and our health. Feel free to email if you want to know more.
- Secondly, we're moving to the UK! We leave New Zealand on December 19th for a bit of a trip around Europe and then we plan to settle in Edinburgh.
- Which leads me to my third point, and I guess the main reason for this blog post: We are documenting the whole thing - but on YouTube. If you want to subscribe to our channel you can do it here, and I'll also attempt to keep this blog updated with embedded videos too. We have been filming for a little while now and will roll out one video per week documenting the process of applying for Visas, packing up our lives, all our travels around Europe, the highs and the lows of relocating overseas and what it's like to find vegan food in different countries (the good and the bad) and the bits in between.
So with that being said, here's video #1.
