In February of this year, my husband Nathan and I moved from Auckland (population 1.5 million) to Wanaka (population 5000), New Zealand. A 1,495km journey undertaken in a car and a truck, with walkie-talkies, in two days. We exchanged traffic for tranquillity and high-rises for high country. The. Best. Move. Ever. Now we are settled, and soon moving into our new rental and I can't wait to unpack, nest and decorate.
