Zoo Animals

Day 6 – This one has been a long time in the making… turns out that vacation plus people is not a great recipe for blog writing. I fully expected this to be the case, as much the same happened during my Switzerland/England/Wales sojourn last year, but naively, I tried to fight it. Clearly, I lost that battle… and so a few months later, here I am catching up.

Itinerary be damned

Day 1 and I’ve already thrown caution to the wind. If this were a novel, I’d start here in the thick of the action. But since this is a travel (b)log I feel I must take you with me on my journey chronologically (I’m sure if I looked the true blog-tiquette up somewhere I’d realize I’m tremendously wrong in making this assumption.)

Nonetheless! From the top! Read More

Whoo Girl

WHOOOOOOOOO. That’s me right now. WHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! It’s the first hour of my 13.5 hour flight from San Francisco to Auckland so I’m sure the WHOOO will turn into zzzzswhatomgsotired. But for now… WHOOOO! I am a whoo girl because the next time I stand on Mother Godess’s sweet sweet soil, it will be New Zealand soil. So, WHOO.
