we’ve been in new zealand for a week now and today was the first day that one of us wasn’t feeling pretty awful. coming back to new zealand in the middle of winter is probably the best way to avoid any strong feelings of wanting to return in a hurry.
the first thing i noticed was how much i don’t miss driving. the second thing i noticed was how much i really love the kid-friendly spots we have in seattle.
then i noticed how much better new zealand does brunch and cafe food in general. and then i remembered how nice it is to be able to order a ‘long black’ and not have to specify size or strength or anything else. and of course i then noticed and focused on how nice it is to be here, so close to friends and family.
2 more days to go. this is a little bit of so far:
