Hi, we are Terry and Maura – Travelkiwis

We are a couple from New Zealand who have been married for 30 years and now on a new journey to see more of the world. We sold our home and gave up our careers in February 2016 having decided there is more to life than simply working until we retire.

We want to share our adventures with anyone who is interested in travel, food, people, housesitting and taking more time.

We have three adult sons (Richard, Daniel and Alexander) who are a big part of our lives.  Of course it was hard to leave them behind, but we hope they will join us at some stage throughout our time away.

We are very interested in packing light (only 10kg each through Asia), learning about people and cultures, buildings older than 200 years (that’s about the oldest in New Zealand) and especially all foods foreign to us.

We want to share our experiences good and not, hints and tips to help other travellers, places we stay, things we see and food we eat.

We hope you enjoy viewing our adventures, please feel free to make comments and share our site with anyone else who has similar likes to us.

Terry & Maura
