A bump in the road: my latest news and a change in pace ahead

I have always been the reflective sort. Often it is the little milestones or dates that occur and it makes me think flip, how did I get to this point?

A few weeks ago my Facebook account decided to remind me that it was 5 years ago that I left the beautiful country of New Zealand.

When I read that, and looked at my slightly tired but youthful 27 year old face,  I questioned where those 5 years had gone.

Then I took time to think about it.

I have lived in 7 different houses, in 5 different cities/towns.

Had 4 different jobs.

Bought a car.

Got married.

Travelled to a further 40 countries.

So in reality, that is a fair few things within a relatively short time span.

So whats next?

Well, possibly a slower pace of life than I am used to. 40 countries in 5 years is quite a lot, and the majority of them involved crazy long bus rides, overnight trains and a lot of fast paced journeys.

Now I will need to slow down.

Here is why
No, thats not a bowling ball up my shirt.

So I am currently almost 7 months pregnant.

I have hidden it for a long time, and only revealled it recently on my Instagram account, but I also hid it physically too. I have only started showing this little bump within the past month or so.

I still hope to continue writing on this blog and travelling. I have already taken the babe to 6 different countries, and I do hope that I will have a mini explorer on my hands by the end of the year.

We already have an overnight stay planned for the first 2 months of baby being here, as well as an epic road and ferry trip to get back to Northern Ireland at  Christmas.

Content therefore may focus more on family / baby travel and as well as the new challenges of parenthood.
