At the ages of 28 and 29, it really looked like The Engineer and I were ready to settle down. We had the house, the cats, the community, and we loved New Plymouth (a small city in New Zealand). But instead we decided to grab an opportunity, pack up our lives, and move to Brunei (a small country we knew nothing about until we decided to move there). We’re there for two years (2013-2014), and then we’ll see where the world takes us next.
I wouldn’t usually define myself by my marital status (I’m firmly a Ms in New Zealand), but being on a dependent visa, and living as a lady of leisure, it suddenly seems a little more appropriate.
I blog about my experiences as an expat and a trailing spouse, my eternal search for happiness and fulfilment, being a Kiwi out of water, travelling in Asia, and the life of a white woman in Brunei. Interspersed, you might find feminism, writing, adventures, mindfulness, yoga, crafts, cooking, and random thoughts.
