New Zealand

We arrived in Auckland four days ago, after 40 hours of travel time.  I am still a little sick from our trip to Peru, but every day I am feeling better. 


Some thoughts, so far, on and from Auckland, New Zealand:

As it turns out, leaving to travel for 6 months is emotionally and physically overwhelming.

Wherever you go, there you are.

I keep thinking that the cars are driving themselves. I have to remind myself that the driver is on the right side of the car.

Much like driving, people walk on the left side of the street. That is the trickiest thing to get used to.

Books are expensive here.

Most of the restaurants here are Malaysian, Japanese, Korean or Indian. If only I had an appetite!

The city of Auckland reminds me of San Francisco, Seattle and a beach town combined.


After spending three nights in Auckland, I am anxious to see more of New Zealand. We leave this morning for a 12 hour bus ride to the southern tip of the northern island – Wellington. There we plan on taking some day trips to vineyards and national parks. Can’t wait!
