Annemarie is a New Zealander, newly returned to her home country after living in London. She and her husband, Steve, wanted a second late-life adventure and arrived in London with the Beast from the East storm at the beginning of March 2018.  Since then, they haven't stopped exploring London, the UK and parts of Europe.


In December 2022 Annemarie published the first book in the Late-Life Adventures series, which tells the story of leaving Auckland at the age of 60 to begin a new life in Teddington, London, near Richmond and of their UK and European travels. The second book came out in March 2024. Here's the links:
