crate day

crate day

Posted from Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand. Is it a holiday? Is it a glorified excuse to abuse alcohol? A remarkable journey into the vast capabilities of the human body? Is it just a reason to try to consume 9 litres of alcohol in one day? Or an excuse to be a bloody idiot all day? […]

trails around Wakatipu

trails around Wakatipu

Posted from Lower Hutt, Wellington, New Zealand. It’s touted as one of the most beautiful countries on the planet, and if you spend a few hours outside here, it’s easy to see why. Much of the land is unspoiled, untouched by the hand of man, left to its own wild inclinations, free to develop as […]

a month in QT

a month in QT

Posted from Queenstown Hill, Otago, New Zealand. “It’s share-ee,” I announciate for the two thousandth time. Some battles are not worth the fight. My name is now “Shiri.” And somehow I have begun to speak in British phrases, which is understandable considering how many poms are here, but also kind of befuddling considering I’m so far […]

making Queenstown a home

making Queenstown a home

Posted from Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand. After two weeks in Queenstown I have seen very little and gotten barely acquainted with the little town I have come to know as home. Work, as it’s turning out, has been consuming a lot of my time. I’m not terribly bothered by this, though. I need the money, […]

What would happen to me now after the freedom of eight glorious months of worldwide travel? How could anything compare to the blissful days of wanderlust and zero obligation? Money was running […]

surprising mom!

surprising mom!

Posted from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. There is no greater pleasure than making mom smile. After being a pain in her ass for much of my life, I’ve tried in my latter years to be a good daughter, but it’s not so easy when I live so far from home, do dangerous things that I’m […]

back to Canada

back to Canada

Posted from Farnham, Quebec, Canada. After an overnight bus ride where a teenage boy kept falling asleep on my shoulder, I got to spend eight exhausting and terribly boring hours in Orly Airport before I finally got on my Corsair Flight and made my way from Paris to Montreal. There really is nothing to do […]

Vector Festival and packing

Vector Festival and packing

Posted from Saint-Rémy, Burgandy, France. Sometimes I think I’m a work-a-holic. I know there’s a few people right now laughing, perhaps gfawing at this idea, seeing as I’ve been traveling for six months, but let me explain. When it comes to work I will work until my fingers bleed. I will work until the skin […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
