Laura flied back into NZ at Dec 2012 until summer 2013 and "permanently" 2014. Several work related trips have also occurred to Germany, England, Portugal, Sudan, Hongkong, China, but luckily not too often to lose the delight of travelling. Kari spent a week at London (April) and Irma traveled to Malta (May) 2013 for a language course and later at 2014 to India. Finnish/Russian border crossing stations are close, so it is quite easy to drive to there for cheaper gazoline, or use fast Allegro-train for visiting for example in Vyborg or St. Petersburgh.
