Today we took the train to Den Haag to do a special vote for the New Zealand election. You can all think of us when they say “We’re just waiting on the special votes to be counted!”

I managed to make a mistake on mine 😛 – which meant the girl behind the counter at the Embassy had to start from scratch! Whoops!

God defend New Ze-ea-land....

The street the NZ Embassy is on is lined with flags of all the countries of the world in alphabetical order.


On Wednesday we will attend the NZ Ambassador’s Christmas Party. We’re going to play a few songs and drink some NZ wine (hooray!). It’s nice to be New Zealanders for a few days.

Happy voting all.
