Before going on with the stories of our round the world trip I’m going to quickly update where we are now and what we have been doing.
We’ve been back in Wellington (NZ) for two and a half months but we are so settled that it feels like we’ve been here for longer!
During the first week, still on holidays, we could enjoy a little bit of what had remained from Summer and went to the beach. But just after that Winter rushed and passed over Fall. That Fall, which generally is great in Wellington, dry, sunny and not so windy simply did not exist this year… the Winter came with everything, strong freezing winds and rain, a lot of rain. I confess that this has been a bit depressing lately.
We’ve already rented a house (which I love!), I am back to the my old job and Felipe’s started at a new job… with that we’ve fallen in the routine home-work-home… what sometimes can be quite boring, specially after living 7 months without any routine.
We still haven’t got a car, but whenever it’s possible we rent one and flee somewhere around for a little change of landscape, mostly we go to Wairarapa, where Fê and Otávio go surfing.
Ah, Otávio is Felipe’s brother (and oficially my brother-in-law now.. hehe), he’s been living with us for one and a half month, what’s being really nice.
He arrived during Easter holidays, we went to Auckland to pick him up and drove in a “road-tour” across the North Island which I am going to tell and publish some photos over here afterwards.
He’s and oceanographer and next month he’ll leave us for a six months internship on construction of artificial reefs in other New Zealand cities.
We’ve already been able to see everything we were missing in NZ, to see our friends that live here and to start itching again for planning the next trip.
But wait, before that I’m going to finish telling what happened in the last one.
