along the shore

along the shore

Posted from San Diego, California, United States. I headed north up the coast, the ocean on my right and the lush green landscape of farmland encircled by mountains following my left for kilometers. I pass golf courses and nature reserves. Migrating birds zig and zag along the path hovering on small thermals in the bog-land […]

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 […]

And what if the stars change?

And what if the stars change?

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. Orion is upside down. I only noticed that the other day. When I saw it I had to think logically about why it was upside down to me, and after a few minutes I understood. Other than that, the sky is fairly normal here, but it doesn’t prevent some […]

Christmas in the sun

Christmas in the sun

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. I awoke Christmas morning without any presents to unwrap and didn’t bother me one bit. I had 20 minutes to get dressed before our lift to the day’s festivities arrived and, of course, I forgot to bring my togs – that’s swim wear. The epic day began with champagne […]

I had been getting used to letting spiders live

Posted from Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand. Today, for the very first time, a White Tail crossed my path. I was outside in the Hammock sunning myself and playing solitaire on my laptop, despite the risk to my screen, when the little fucker came creeping up my computer desk/wooden foldout chair. I have been told that […]

I think I’m in paradise

I think I’m in paradise

Posted from Hope, Tasman, New Zealand. The trip from Franz Josef to Motueka was kind of uneventful, minus the crazy bus driver who kept forgetting his seatbelt was still on when he went to leave the bus to pick up a passenger. There was also the time he forgot to close the luggage door before […]

How to spend money in Queenstown

How to spend money in Queenstown

Posted from Queenstown, Otago, New Zealand. From bungee, to rafting, to canyoning, to giant swings between mountains, to drinks and food and all that lies in between, a traveler could very easily spend everything in their coffers here. I know. Apparently I tried. So, after spending a small fortune doing some of these things, and […]

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 […]
