SAM_1658We are Margaret and Derek Holmes, golden oldies and committed Christians who live in  New Zealand in our old 1962 AEC Reliance bus and travel around our beautiful country.   We get to appreciate God’s wonderful creation and meet the most amazing people. It is a life style we really enjoy and nothing blesses us more than when the old girl is on the move to more adventures. This was not something we chose for ourselves but God led us to this lifestyle and because of our love for him we could only obey. It took me (Margaret) two years to get used to the idea. We have been on the road since 2012. At first we had a larger bus than the one we have now. It was a 11 metre   1962 GMC the only one of its kind in New Zealand so very special to us. After 2 1/2 yrs of faithful service God led us to down size to 9 metres , which we did, buying our present old girl. As you can see we are very fond of the classics having had old cars, machinery, tractors and collectibles all our life together.  We sold up or gave away everything we had to follow God’s call on our lives.
