Ten suitcases, five carry-ons, one bike box and a family of five leave the comfortable suburbs of America and journey to a small town on the North Island of New Zealand. When they stepped off the plane, it is as if they have opened their eyes for the first time. All senses come alive to the colors, smells, tastes and culture of this new place. Journey with them through the year. Read about the history that formed these two islands. Learn about the Maori and their traditions that are still alive. Adventure with the kids, cry with the mom, dance with the dad and fall in love with the country.
