A few weeks ago, Caleb and I joined his parents on a dream trip to the south island of New Zealand. In his family they have a (wonderful) tradition of taking each couple on one trip in their lifetime. Caleb is the baby of 7, so this was the last trip. We flew into Christchurch and then took the transalpine railway to Greymouth. We spent the next few days touring around the western coast, enjoying the beach, dolphin sightings and of course, the best fish n’ chips on the island. We then made our way to the port town for Wanaka and then onto Queenstown. From Queenstown we took part in a safari, a flight to Milford Sound and a cruise to the Tasman Sea. Our second-to-last stop was at a “sheep station” or sheep farm, that looked out on the most idyllic rolling hills. We learned about the sheering process and the challenges that come with managing over 10,000 animals. Our final days were spent in Dunedin, on the Pacific coast. The morning we left we were greeted with a double rainbow and our first sight of rain. It was a beautiful trip and I am so grateful for the time spent with my in-laws and with Caleb. It truly was a trip of a lifetime!
