The Last 3+ Months: a quick recap

As in most seasons of life, there are ebbs and flows. I’ve pulled back from blogging the last couple of months. Mainly because I was on the move a lot, and I spent most of my spare time investing in relationships – both old and new ones.

A lot has changed since November. I left Wellington behind, got to spend two great weeks seeing the country with my parents, got a ticket for Stray (a hop-on, hop-off bus pass and a great way to meet people from all over and see parts of New Zealand you wouldn’t see otherwise), and impulsively decided to settle in Queenstown on the South Island, where I have been working at the famous Ferg Bakery.

I have also done a lot of reflecting on what I want to do and the type of people I want to surround myself with when I do finally return home (no clear date on when that is going to happen though…lots of options up in the air right now).

Here’s a quick summary of this last season in photos.
