Allora and her crew are in New Zealand and have been since November, 2019. We sailed from the North Island to the South Island in February of 2020 and are tucked away in this relative haven of Lyttelton while the rest of the world’s experience of Covid still unfolds. We await the ability to be nomadic again, while maintaining gratitude for where we happened to land.
You can reach Diana at: +64 02041930434 and Marcus at: +64 0224300535 (yes, mine is harder to memorize, with 11 digits instead of 10!)
We can receive texts and calls! Yippee!
ALLORA VOYAGE BLOG:
Easiest for us is to receive TEXTS via our Iridium sat phone system — in theory anywhere on the planet. For those of you with International texting plans, it will be free of charge. Otherwise, check the fees per text with your provider!
Dial: 011-8816-234-91100 (from the US)
You can also place a PHONE CALL to our SAT phone, using the same number and dialing format above, but it will most likely be expensive and we may or may not hear the incoming call, so if you ARE trying to reach us this way, be sure to make repeated attempts while we fumble around trying to get the clunky system to answer!
We can receive/send EMAILS also, (no charge) text only (no attachments!) at: firstname.lastname@example.org
