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, […]

London’s calling

London’s calling

Posted from London, England, United Kingdom. The last time I was in London I was 23-years-old and was traveling with my mom and grandma. So as I headed toward ‘the big smoke’ I knew this experience was going to be slightly different, mostly because I’m older, I’m staying with friends and I don’t have mom’s […]

floating markets of Can Tho

floating markets of Can Tho

Posted from Can Tho, Can Tho, Vietnam. The morning air is cool along the river. Goosebumps dot my arms, but I hardly notice. It’s pitch black and somehow my boat driver is winding his way along the Mekong avoiding the river traffic with ease, and what I can only guess is years of experience. Rose, […]

easy pilot

Posted from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. It’s easy to survive in a familiar environment. When you know the streets, the people, the culture, the way, the weather – when you know a place getting through the day or the week is easy – as long as you know the formula. It’s like this for me […]

if this is it

if this is it

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. The coolest part about living on an island in the far corner of the world is that the rest of the world is a place I can truly say is quite far away – on so many levels. There’s a sense of isolation here. An almost roguish inkling to […]

sunshine in 1.5 years

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. But and so it is. This is how it is. And the sun is shining once again. How I have or how I did – I’ll never know how I have lived through such things. I wish I could say it was because of him, but that doesn’t work […]

calling summer

calling summer

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. Somewhere out beyond the clouds I know the sun is preparing to make its grand entrance into summer here. But alas, it has only cast it’s wonderous heating rays on us for a few hours since my arrival four days ago. Such is the nature of summer in New […]

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 […]
