It’s been a whirlwind. Everyday has been packed. We did have a day or two to sleep in but once we are out the door we are on the move. One week in South Island wasn’t enough to see the entire island. We were probably a bit ambitious attempting to drive around the entire island.
I joke that I’m planning to move to Queenstown next year but part of me wants to. It would probably be the smallest city I have ever lived in and going home would be more of a hassle than it is now but none of that matters to me right now.
I recently booked my tickets back home. I was a little sad to know my world tour has an end. I’ll be back two weeks later than I had originally planned but what has gone according to plan this year. This is the year of big and it’s go big and go home, and I’m not ready to go home right now.
We flew from Christchurch to Auckland this morning. We spent about an hour in the mall shopping. I didn’t buy anything since I packed so much there’s not much I need and I also don’t have the space to pack it. We went through a bit of culture shock, not used to the hustle and bustle of cities. Traffic lights and multi-lane roads are also new to us.
We are driving down to to National Park to do another hike tomorrow. We booked our flights before we knew our plans or else driving north from Christchurch could have been another option.
