The Home on Wheels

We have arrived home in New Zealand and as soon as we arrived in the airport we had two problems to solve...
  • Transport (a way to get from here to there)
  • A house, somewhere to sleep and eat and live!

So we've hired an RV ;)

Now our home is mobile and we are free to go wherever we want - and spend the night there!

Having your home be a RV has been (as I had imagined) difficult at times, the bedtime routine for the kids is now, bath time, books, brush teeth, uninstall carseats or dining room table and fold out/re assemble bed to sleep in, then make bed and finally time to go to bed, ugh!

Also I miss having a washing machine.

But the upsides are obvious, you get to come and go from places as you please.
And our RV does provide all the necessary bits and pieces, stove to cook on, Fridge, shower/toilet, bedding etc

And the unexpected quirky "up"s I have found are:

I really like sleeping in a queen size bunk bed.

I like having a change of clothes for me and the kids travel with me everywhere I go (in fact all my changes of clothes are always with me lol)

When you go grocery shopping you get to unload your groceries from the supermarket trolley in the supermarket parking lot, straight into your home fridge.

And you can get drive through takeaways, never leave the car park and still eat at your dining room table.

hmmmm, where to next?...
