Bathing in the Happiness of Freedom

Three showers, eight hikes, fifty sandfly bites, three surf attempts, two pairs of smelly shoes, many lost games of chess, unlimited stops for tea, and a whole beaches worth of sand in the van all in three weeks of getting around New Zealand. Small prices to pay for the feeling of complete freedom, to strip back…

‘IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING…’

Bliss. The rich beams from the sun warming my face, finally conquering the lake of clouds that have swallowed Wanaka town the past few days. I’m sharing my coffee with my new friend – a curious little brown bird, hopping around the table acting excited to see a new face, ‘another traveller, hello!’. I watch…
