Most of our belongings on on this container.

This container is now on this ship.

It's the OOCL Hong Kong. You can track it along with me if you like, on the OOCL web site.

It left New York yesterday. Now it's docked at Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Tomorrow it's due to depart across the Atlantic, reaching Italy in 6 days. That's the easy part.

You may have heard about the recent pirate activity in the Gulf of Aden. Guess where our container ship is heading next? Hopefully it makes it through unscathed. Assuming it does, it'll reach Singapore, where our container will be shifted to a different ship that heads down to Napier.

Congratulations! It is a huge thing to leave your country and take a new adventure.

Napier is lovely. My son has managed to get there with his grandpa, but we haven't made it yet. It is high on my list of easy places to reach that I want to visit. We live in Wellington just 4 hours away.

I have a blogspot site, but it has nothing to do with immigration... just hobby games. My other blog at has much more about New Zealand. We moved from Kansas City a year ago.
