"Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path."

frohesmaedchen asked - "I've just come across your blog, and seeing your pictures and posts about my beautiful country are so inspiring; I love seeing NZ from a traveller's perspective. I wish I could take the time to be a tourist in my own country, as well as travel overseas and explore the way you two have. It's awesome to see that you enjoyed it so much :) Once I finally finish my studies, I aim to do exactly what you're doing :) I think your blog will be a great source of procrastination for me ;)"

Hi there!

Thank you for your support and for following along — we’re so glad you’re inspired and excited about it. The blog has been a beautiful way to archive our journey and perspective. When we first set up the blog, we didn’t have a set goal — we just knew that we had to share what we saw. Along the way, the blog has evolved into an outlet, a way to voice our experience though photographs and words. It’s humbling to hear that it’s now a source of inspiration :)

Please, by all means, take as much time as you need to be a tourist in your own country. New Zealand was one of our favorite countries to visit because of the beauty of the land, quality of life and kindness of the people. Speaking of, how kind of you to recognize the people behind the camera! Good luck on your adventure and let us know if you have any questions regarding travel to other countries — we’d love to follow along your journey and help out in any way.

Happy Travels!

 

Hugs,

Joanne & Kara

We’ve had some times I wouldn’t trade for the world


Christchurch will always hold a special place in our hearts. We explored during the day and partook in a different adventure each night. Though we only intended to stay for a couple days, we ended up extending for a week and were sad to leave when the time came. I know some day I’ll be back; same place, different time.
