Jackie Norman met her soul mate, sold her suburban home and swapped it for life on the road travelling round NZ in a campervan, despite never having any experience of the lifestyle before. Her aim was to swap a stressful life servicing a crippling mortgage with a more carefre...e lifestyle, stripped back to essentials, living in the moment and exploring New Zealand. With no schedule and no real goals and after nearly two years on the road Jackie and her husband Gareth have learnt a lot about the highs and lows of a nomadic life. She writes with humour and insight about their adventures on the road and the lessons they've learnt along the way with anecdotes, tips, suggestions and favourite spots they've been on their travels from the tip of the North Island to Bluff in the South. We learn about the day-to-day reality and challenges of life on the road, top campsites, special spots, how to cope with mozzies and the dreaded condensation, and what the traveller community is really like. An idyllic Utopia, or a modern day Hell? Romantics....or unprepared novices? Did anyone tell them about the Sandflies? "The world is like a puddle, it doesn't look much on the surface, but it is so much deeper than you think. Travelling New Zealand is just the same. It may look small on the map, but don't be fooled. A million things can pop up along the way, a million more new places can be uncovered and ex- plored, with every passing day. However long it takes, we'll do it at our own pace, taking our home with us." Share in this hilarious journey by journalist Jackie Norman as she and her husband embark on their two year odyssey around New Zealand in their trusty campervan.
