Hi everyone, we are Royce and Courtney two kiwi shepherds from the Land Of The Long White Cloud (New Zealand). For over the past few years Royce and I have been writing down our adventures to keep family and friends up to date. From New Zealand to Europe, then onto England, Ireland, England and Europe again, back to England, and now finally home again in New Zealand. Having Lived and worked in the United Kingdom, and travelled parts of Europe. (with more travel on the horizon.. Hopefully!) We are writing this blog to share the realities of living, working and trying to travel and experience culture in a sustainable, healthy way. Both overseas and now back home in little old New Zealand. We are trying to create a ‘free range’ lifestyle that gets us out the metaphorical gate into new and exciting opportunities and experiences. We hope you will join us!

This blog is our personal adventures through the written word and a love of photography. We want to share our experiences, struggles and golden moments all with a kiwi farmer spin. So sit back, get comfy, put your reading glasses on and read on to find out how we have got on far from the grassy hills, and peace and quiet of rural Aotearoa. ((Ao-tea-roa) Maori name for New Zealand) To the far flung corners of Europe, the Untied Kingdom and back home once again.

 Thank you to all our current and new followers and please send us a message if you have any suggestions. We miss our travels in Chester the Transit. However we are safe in New Zealand and itching to explore our own back yard! Head over to Instagram (@thetravellingshepherds) to check out our latest adventures!
