Yes, it’s been quite a while since my last post. That’s because 1) New Zealand’s wifi connections are few and far between, and 2) I’ve been walking and hitching my way through south New Zealand for the last 8 days.
I’m not good at sitting still. Anyone who knows me will agree. I like to move, explore, be with the people I love, experience, be busy. That’s why I scheduled 5 days on the Abel Tasman Great Walk along the New Zealand coast: to force myself to slow down, process this adventure, let the fact that I don’t have to work or have any responsibilities for the next several months. And I totally failed – I did it in 4 days. But I learned something about myself.
