Since when have I been living in New Zealand? My wife, Cathy and I had a restaurant in Japan for 11years, YES 11 years. It doesn't sound a long time but food business does not stop even on our days off, felt like we were working all the time. We closed the restaurant and moved here in Jan 2010, What a choice!!
As a flyfisher and a mountain biker, Taupo is a heaven!! I really love it!! and so does our 2 children. They now go to primary school here, enjoying bare feet life in summer, and crispy deep breath feel cold air in winter. Did we make a good decision moving here??? A life - which allows us to go into nature 7 days a week cannot go wrong ah!!!
