It's time to move on, time to get going. What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing.
Auckland, New Zealand
My time on the north island of New Zealand draws to a close. One final glorious breakfast followed by a drive to Rotorua and a visit to the geysers of Wai-O-Tapu. And then the long drive back to Auckland for an overnight stop before tomorrow’s flight. My camera is now overflowing with photos and my head with fond memories. I am once again solo and sans wheels. My trademark Hanauma Bay turtle hat is lost to me forever, misplaced somewhere in the car which has now been returned. But, tomorrow the adventure continues bringing with it new sights, sounds, and experiences. As today’s young’uns like to say, it will be “amazeballs.” Stay tuned.
