On 5th April 2008 we fly out of London Heathrow headed for New Zealand and the start of our gap adventure. In our youth, gap years were unheard of – so we’re making up for lost time by having not just a gap year but a whole gap adventure. Ian has been offered one year’s work by the Ministry of Education in Wellington, starting on 21st April, and Sandie has also been offered work by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER). On the way to NZ we’re breaking our journey for a week in Southern California, intending to explore places like San Diego and Palm Springs that we don’t know. We land in Wellington on 14th April (Sandie’s 60th birthday), having lost the 13th April somewhere in the space-time continuum.
Watch this space for updates on our adventure.
