We are Roy & Bernice. We have four children between us, Simon & Jason are Roy’s, Antony & Alexandra are ours. Now they have all left home and are reasonably settled in their own lives, we decided it was time for us to live a little.

Up until July 2010 we owned and ran a Luxury Lodge, Pen-y-bryn, in Oamaru, South Island New Zealand. Once that was sold, we packed up everything and decided to tour, firstly around the UK & Europe and then NZ, with an eye to tour around Australia at some time. This blog follows our journeys including our current life, living and traveling in a motorhome throughout New Zealand.

    Hi Bernice and Roy,
    I’m just trying to find out if your son Antony is the same Antony James Vannini whose mail I have been receiving. So far I’ve had his vehicle registration and electoral roll papers. My address is 3 Clark Road, Pahurehure, Papakura. I’ve been here for 23 years, so I’m pretty sure he has never lived here. Can you get him to correct his address, or let me know his actual address so I can forward his mail?
