NEW ZEALAND HERE WE COME!

As many of you know, we have spent much of our relationship together on the go and traveling! We thought we'd go big or go home!

Right after the wedding, we will start our first nights as a united couple with a charming, cozy Mini-Moon in Carmel Valley located along the central coast of California, just southeast of Monterey.

Then, from November 23 to December 7, we will spend 2 weeks in the North Island of New Zealand! We will stay in Turangi (central New Zealand by a lake) and Pauanui Beach (in the north east side of the island). During part of our travels, we plan to rent a mini camper van to camp along as we roam the island between our two destinations which are almost on opposite sides of the island.

We can't wait! We very much appreciate your love, support and generosity!

Love,
Fernando and Lisa
