Faces of Christchurch 

A few of the important people who made us feel welcome and at home in Christchurch and Lyttelton.

Chris, Kate, Maia & Piper: 

We can’t say how thankful we are for this family. They welcomed us into the country and let us join their family for 4 months.

We had many awesome chats over dinner and wine, and they taught us so much about New Zealand from the very start. We can’t wait to see them again! 


Margaret & Tony: 

Margaret and Tony are Chris’ mum and stepdad. They were kind enough to let us stay with them for a month. We loved getting to know them and enjoyed their company and conversation immensely!


Gaby: (aka Gibby) 

We became fast friends with Gaby. She welcomed us into her circle of life and made us feel like we belonged. It feels like we’ve known each other so much longer than 3 months! She is, and has been- an incredibly good friend to us.


Dave & his parents Tony and Jolanda: 

Dave was one of the first and best friends we made. Luckily he didn’t get sick of us! We’re so thankful that he sacrificed sleep so many nights so that we could hangout. We learned a lot by spending time with him and his parents on their dairy farm!



We had a blast every time we hung out with Jack. He’s probably too cool to be friends with us, but we’re glad he is anyway. We can’t wait to have him visit us in Boise 😉


Jonny, Rushani & Rishi: 

The wonderful people who gave us a job!
A large part of our employment was due to Rishi being born, and we were stoked to meet him before we left! We feel so lucky that our timing worked out for us to be able to work at Rushani’s!


We’ll miss our New Zealand family!
