After being in the Northern hemisphere for the last few years, Team Rabe is heading down South. The Southern Hemisphere and the antipodes awaits. It’s time for an antipodean adventure. As we head out on our next adventure together we are reminded of the risk of high expectations. We are open minded about what we will see and experience. This trip will be focused on exploring parts of New Zealand together for the first time and spending time with family, and then heading to Australia and revisiting some places and people that mean the most to us.
If you have been around here any length of time, you know that we go with the flow, but that we are also Itinerary people.

We are going to try and write articles as we go – I say try because we won’t quite know our bandwidth until we are on the way.
As we finalize the details and our packing – I know that we are hopeful, and anticipating an adventure. Although we both love to travel, New Zealand will mark the 4th country we have traveled together – which is a sadly small number in almost the same years of marriage!
Tell us, what should we see in New Zealand?! Tell us about your end of 2017 adventures!
Explore. Travel. Adventure. Hope. Dream. Capture. Imagine. Delight.
We are a recently married thirty-something couple who explore, adventure, and live Not a Pedestrian Life.
We are Anna & Dwight Rabe. We are Team Rabe.
