Touching New Zealand

Prompt #27: WANDERLUST

“Share a photo or video that just makes you want to GO. RIGHT. NOW.”

Touching New Zealand

In downtown Victoria, B.C., the humongous globe seems like it wouldn’t move for mere mortals, yet you can spin it with your fingers.

BootnAll’s President, Sean Keener, once asked me what my “BHAGs” were—my “Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals”. One of my and Jodie’s goals is to live at least a year in New Zealand. Now, as Jodie and I honeymooned in Victoria, I could reach out and touch a country. I spun this huge globe, and there it was: New Zealand, right under my fingertips.

If memory serves, I looked at Jodie and said, “This makes me want to go there. Right now.”

One day. We, as a family, kiddos and all, are going to New Zealand. We will travel there and live there. It’s going to be amazing, and every time I look at this photo, a shiver runs through me.

Let’s go. Right now.

What is the 30 days of indie travel?

BootsnAll 30 Days of Indie TravelEvery day in November, the BootsnAll Travel Network is inviting bloggers from around the world to a daily blogging effort designed to reflect on how our travel experiences over the last year (or whenever) have shaped us and our view of the world.
