2 weeks

2 weeks...that's my current tour length.  It has flown by, but seems longer with all the activities: hiking volcanoes, swimming in cold water and natural hot springs, climbing rocks, eating local cuisine, chatting with people from all over the world, skyping back home, dancing, bungy jumping, job searching, walking, experiencing, etc.
Friday, three of us took a day trip to Karekare which was absolutely gorgeous... black sand beaches... Pohutukawa trees... a wild seal... waves slamming into the seastacks... no one else around... 10 rows of breakers... cliffs...calming.  It was great!  What's next?  Wherever the wind blows... and that can be many different directions!  Traveling releases a sense of surprise, uncertainty and refreshment....and I welcome all of it.  It makes you put yourself out there... which of course makes you indulge and experience many things that you didnt think you were capable of seeing/doing.   I will leave you today with a quote... 
"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return" - Leonardo da Vinci.
