- Moving on... See you on the other side of the 'Pacific Plate'! 2 months ago My new blog, ‘Pacific Plate Brit‘ (www.pacificringlife.com) is up and running! All ready for our new adventure living in Santa Barbara, California, USA! We departed Wellington, New Zealand, on Wednesday 7 August.

As family back home, it's been wonderful to keep up with the "going on" via the blog. OK! We're biased - but we still think it shows a wonderful talent and gives a real in-site to the trials, tribulations, pleasures and rewards in moving half way round the world.

Sarah is a truly inspiring blogger capturing the magic of life, love and family through stories of everyday life, poetry and photographs. I love reading about the adventures of her charming family as they embrace the best that Wellington has to offer.

This blog is incredibly sincere and kind-hearted. Sarah's kids are really lucky to be in such a fantastic, loving, and creative family, and it's an inspiration to see the family be nurtured and grow. Well done, Sarah.
