Ours is a story about cross-cultural living, exploration and creativity. It's a story about keeping in touch with friends and family many timezones away. It's about new friends in our timezone becoming old friends. Whether in person or online, in Tonga, New Zealand, or anywhere else in the world, we love sharing it with you.
We've been thinking about this a lot. It feels right to close the book on MK Squared with our departure from Tonga and go forward to new media as we go on to new adventures.
So, instead of Blogger, we're moving to new ways of storytelling. We won't be posting on this blog anymore, but you can still stay in touch easily:

Deep breath. We are now living in New Zealand.
Imagine how unsatisfying it would have been if I had written earlier: We’re on to our next adventure, but aren’t exactly sure what that will be… We’re going to New Zealand at the end of July, but don’t quite know if Mark will be able to go to school… Or even lately: Just arrived. Got a bad flu. Slept overnight in the Auckland Airport. Slept for 24 hours upon arriving in Wellington. So tired. Signing the lease on a flat. No furniture. No salt. Have no idea yet how the busses work.
I never thought I’d say this, but thank goodness for the insta-updates of Facebook.
