The long way home After 3 years in the UK we're off back home to NZ, but not before attempting to rid ourselves of the dreaded travel lurgy.

Yes, Vien popped the question at Neuschwenstein castle in south Germany. After apparently carrying the ring for 2 months (suprised he didn't lose it!) the timing and place was awesome. We are both happy and are giving you all warning of our wedding so no excuses for no shows. I was totally shocked and I thought he was kidding! hahaha

Ladies- the ring is beautiful but, only a temporary travelling ring as Vien is worried somebody may cut off my finger for the bling to come!

So life is good...

Yeah, good excuse for not buying her a proper bling VD.

Have your folks freaked out yet?

We are first on the list. I want to wear a sari and a rice paddy hat xxxx

Congratulations from everyone at World Nomads. Some advice for your boy, “I have learned that only two things are necessary to keep one's wife happy. First, let her think she's having her own way. And second, let her have it.”
