Wanaka has no shortage of awesomeness and Rob Roy...
Hello! We are Jordan and Jenna – an adventurous Canadian couple who love being active and sharing our adventures with others!
Our journey started in September 2013 when we quit our jobs, sold our houses, cars and belongings in Canada – packed our bags and moved to the other side of the world! Looking for adventure, while still pursuing our careers, we set off for New Zealand to experience ‘Living a Kiwi Life’.
We lived in Wellington for 2.5 years and one of the biggest lessons we’ve learned since moving to New Zealand is to appreciate our free time and take advantage of the opportunity to get out and explore. We spent the previous 3 years back in Canada working full time and taking our MBA part time and we slipped into the perception that there just wasn’t enough time for all the fun things in life. When we moved to New Zealand we had no obligations, no excuses to hang on to and we were exposed to one of the most beautiful (and adventurous) countries in the world!
We spent the first 6 weeks exploring the North and South Island before settling into our jobs and life in the beach side suburb of Lyall Bay. As we continue to pursue our careers we take advantage of every spare moment to get outdoors and do something fun! We maximize our evenings, weekends and holidays to get out and explore, whether we’re climbing a mountain, surfing or pushing our limits with an adrenaline filled activity.
Now back in Canada, we are excited to explore our own backyard with a renewed appreciation!
