Michael was back to work, so the beard had to come off.
I picked up a new job and we quickly settled back into our routine in Christchurch.
After 18 months or working, during which time we had our house repaired by the Earthquake Commission, we decided it was go time again. So we sold our villa and everything in it, left both of our jobs, and packed out backpacks ready for the next adventure… without Ruby.
