Meet Roy and Val

We met Roy and Val at the Paeroa street races (called Battle of the Streets). Roy was so kind and offered us a place to stay for the night (we ended up staying 2 nights). Val made us an authentic New Zealand dinner (picnic pie as well as fresh veggies from the garden) and we had a wonderful time getting to know our new friends. They also had grapes growing on vines on their patio which were quite yummy. Thank you for everything Roy and Val!


  1. Thank you Roy and Val for inviting Kristen and Shawn into your home. And for starring in the video with that wonderful accent. What great memoirs they will have.

  2. Mr. Roy and Mrs. Val seem to be great people. I loved hearing him talk. So neat to have met such wonderful people on your trip!

  3. How completely awesome of them to invite you guys to stay with them!!!! :-) And I agree with mom about the wonderful accent!
    Those grapes look delicious!

  4. I just realized who Val sounds like - she totally sounds like the sweet little witch that heals Atreyu in the Neverending Story. So CUTE!
