So I am sitting back in Auckland in Joe’s place, I stayed here on the way through the first time. He’s a great guy and lets couch surfers crash at his place. I am hoping to head to the Auckland Zoo tomorrow, maybe I’ll finally see a Kiwi.
Its a weird feeling that I am about to come home. I am excited to see everyone, get back into things I may have left off, and start things I may have been planning. However, I have a connection in Hong Kong on the way back from Auckland to Vancouver, a tiny little part of me wants to skip the second plane and go explore China properly. I wont, no worries there, its just one of those things in the back of my mind. To be truthful, I actually have the night before Christmas syndrome and have for the last 2 nights, I am excited to see what real life brings.
I will miss the life of a traveller, but it has been an experience I will never forget, I would highly recommend this to anyone of any age. At this moment I am reminded of my favourite quote:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed with the things you didn’t do than the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Thanks to everyone for reading and commenting, was nice to have a little touch of home. I will be posting more photos when I get home, many never seen, some will be newer edited versions of what you have already seen and look better.
