2023 Jan – Post-purchase events – Christmas Holiday and Covid


After securing the caravan by paying the deposit, we were able to head  to New Zealand for a Christmas holiday with all our family.

We flew to NZ accompanied by our 3 Grandkids who live round the corner from us, Their mum, Leanne, still was at work and only joined us a few week later.

We were having a great time on the farmlet until we all come down with Covid just before Christmas which was a bit of a downer. By this time Leanne had joined us and as she had not contracted Covid at that time it was a case of masks and isolation!!

We all recovered well and then made our way south in convoy – Sports car + SUV with trailer load of  “toys” (Quadbikes, blowcart, etc) and supplies, and truck with 5th wheeler for the rest of our holiday in Twizel.

The rest of our holiday including New Year Celebrations passed pleasantly and, all too soon, we were winging our way back to Oz.
