The End Of The Road

USA | Wednesday, 20 May 2009 | Views [250]

Or maybe I should say; the end of one road and the start of many new ones. The end because my two months of traveling is now over. I can honestly say that I have had the time of my life, as cliche as that may be, but it's very very true. I'm so glad ... Read more >

Probably the longest I've waited between entries since I've been away but for good reason; I hadn't done... anything really, until today. The past few days I just spend wandering around Santa Monica, where I'm staying, and yesterday I checked out Venice ... Read more >

The End Draws Near

NEW ZEALAND | Monday, 11 May 2009 | Views [245] | Comments [1]

Today was my last full day in New Zealand. I never thought that 8 weeks could fly by so fast, but they have. I'll not sum up my time in New Zealand quite yet, I'll save that until after LA when I make my last entry, but it has been just absolutely amazing.... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Friday, 8 May 2009 | Views [250]

The region of NZ where Paul lives is called The Catlins. It's in the south east corner and is home to lots of beaches, waterfalls and birds it would seem. While I'm here and I have access to the car, I figured it makes sense to drive around and check ... Read more >

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 5 May 2009 | Views [349]
