The Farewell Parties

We were never going to be able to leave Auckland quietly!

We flew to Auckland early on Friday the 11th April for the Business Like NZ farewell party. Rachel D had kept it a surprise so there was much anticipation. Normally it was me organising the surprise events so it was interesting with the boot being on the other foot.

We were being picked up at 8:45am – being picked up was another interesting twist. The Siminovich Olive Estate / Bracu van turned up so we then knew where we were heading.

Thirty minutes later we arrived in Bombay South of Auckland and were driven down to the activities area. Archery, BB guns, knife throwing & clay bird shooting awaited us.




We then had a delicious degustation lunch. The team presented Steve & I with survival kits. Mine had some duct tape in it – it might keep Steve quiet – yeah right!

Steve also got given a lovely hand beaten copper bowl – now taking pride of place on our coffee table. I got a Thomas Sabo charm bracelet with a charm from each of the team that meant something. Very special & will be worn with fond memories while I am away.

An awesome day.




This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
