SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Go HERE to listen to a podcast which features my recommendations for places to visit in Aotearoa, based on five of my favourite places south of the 45th parallel. There is a short introduction in German after which it is in English translated into German. So a dual lingo production you could say. And if you are interested in continuing to follow the podcast, which is in German, YouTube offers translated subtitles. Just click on the clip’s Settings logo.
The podcast is called Holy Sheep, about a family preparing to travel from Berlin to Aotearoa, New Zealand. Listeners are able to go along for the ride as the family prepares both mentally and emotionally for this huge adventure. The podcast host, Jenny, explores what New Zealand has to offer and what differences she and her children will face living there.
Preparations to leave their beloved Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin, to go and live in another country, are being well documented – including Jenny’s trepidations about this new venture. Holy Sheep opens a window on to the reality of dealing with all the mixed emotions a venture like this causes; such as the wrench of having to leave home and parents, siblings, grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunts, friends, neighbours and classmates. Hopefully the excitement and anticipation of travel and new adventures, is helping to offset the sadness.
The trip Jenny and Chris are planning to take to Aotearoa New Zealand, is a slow one overland. No twelve-hour, long-haul flight for this family of five to endure. Listeners to this podcast will hear how the journey unfolds as they go. They will also hear how the family settle into their new home. This podcast promises much and delivers more. Highly recommend.
NOTE: As you may already have guessed, the family of which I speak is none other than my son Chris, his partner Jenny and their three kids.
