two weeks

two weeks

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. I’m getting excited. In two weeks, for the first time in my life, I’m travelling to a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The island – Fiji! This is going to be a lot of firsts for me. I’ve never been to a tropical island. I’ve […]

right side. left side.

right side. left side.

Posted from Riwaka, Tasman, New Zealand. At the intersection I have to remind myself to look centre of road and keep my body there. Drive on the left. I repeat it in my head continuously down these narrow roads. Drive left. Drive left. Right turns are the most confusing – the left-turning traffic yields to […]

rainy days … again

rainy days … again

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. The pavement is wet and I just know there’s a trail of dirt up the back of my shorts. Great. Raindrops are clinging to the lenses of my sunnys, but I have a hope it can’t rain the whole bike-ride to work. Why would I be going to work […]

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. Experimentation is supposed to be interesting and fun. The very word brings up some pretty vivid images of what my idea of experimentation is.

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 […]

summery Christmas – ahhhhhh

summery Christmas – ahhhhhh

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. It’s warm in the morning now. It’s nice to wake up, throw on some shorts, open the door to the patio and not be cold. Some days tandems are booked in by 6:30 a.m., so it matters to me. But on the lucky days we don’t start until 9 […]

rain, rain, go away

rain, rain, go away

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. A landslide in New Zealand is called a slip. Not a slide, but a slip. The word kind of baffles me as it makes this occurrence seem so common and whoopsie-daisy. Tons of rock and dirt slide down a hillside taking out a road and filling up houses at […]

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 […]

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 […]
