I basically spent the whole day driving, in athletic therapy, driving, and sitting on a bench at my basketball team’s first play off game. Which they won 116-13. Every spare minute was taken up by day dreaming about my up coming adventure to New Zealand.
I’ve been planning this for about 2 years now, and my best friend, Jenaya, recently decided to join me. The past 4 days have ben filled with planning and scheming for what is sure to be the best 6 months of our lives. Right now I’m working on finding work. I’ve been talking to the owners of a barn down there, seeing if I can get a working position riding with them. At the same time exploring different options for Jenaya to work and live at the same place or near by.
I’m so glad I will have someone to travel with while I’m there. Spending 6 months away from home alone is intimidating to say the least, so having a close friend there with me will certainly be amazing!
Now to sort out this work situation. It’s about 2 hours away from where we were originally going to live (with cousins in Whangarei), but if we can find room and board there? Perfect.
