That old saying ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ sure applied to Aimee and Paul’s wedding in Morrinsville.

There is always so much character […]

Nelson Mandela said there is no passion in living small. So we have decided to go for it! We don’t have all that we want, but we believe we have everything we need. A couple of months ago we launched a campaign to get us over to Myanmar and due to some amazing circumstances, we […]

I’m not sure how long it’s been but for the past bunch of weeks, maybe months, as we ventured to the point of launching our campaign I have felt sick with nerves. Doing these sort of things are not easy. Especially when you are asking people to help you go after a dream that can […]

A couple of weeks before we touched down, I kept asking my wife to email our friends who live in India. “Ask them for tips on how to prepare for our entry” I asked her. But as I touched down I realised there was nothing that could prepare me for what I was about to […]
