Tropical Rejuvenation?

USA | Thursday, 13 Jan 2011 | Views [358]

I arrived at the Kona airport on Sunday at 2pm. It's a small park-like airport with an outdoor picnic-under-palm-trees feel in the arrivals area. EJ stuffed me and my bags into her car and we drove straight to a beautiful beach for a picnic and swim.... Read more >

Puerto Vallarta 2010

USA | Sunday, 28 Feb 2010 | Views [383]

Just back from 12 days in Puerto Vallarta, thanks to my good friend Lynne and her Mom's generous offer to let me crash with them at their time share. For once I didn't feel I needed a vacation, as my work schedule has been super slow this winter, the ... Read more >

Well, here I am, nearing the end of my trip and I land in a very very small town named Omapere, in the Hokianga Harbor area. I was picked up by the owner of Globetreker's Lodge, a lovely lady named Sue, and promptly given the quick tour of the area, ... Read more >

Auckland and the Bay of Islands

USA | Sunday, 26 Apr 2009 | Views [421]

I'll cover Auckland in a couple sentences: I had a brilliant day at an island bird sanctuary called Tiri Tiri Maatangi, a day trip on a boat out of Auckland harbor. I enjoyed the museum, hiking to the top of a neighborhood volcano for a view of the city, ... Read more >

I just finished a 9 day roadtrip in a small minivan decked out as campervan with my buddy Ramona. She flew over from Sydney to meet up with me for a week and I was thrilled to have a friend to travel with for a bit! We had heaps of fun and the following ... Read more >


WWOOF Host #8 : Riverside Community

USA | Monday, 13 Apr 2009 | Views [1917] | Comments [1]

I spend three days at the Riverside Community, which I believe is New Zealand's oldest intentional community (commune). It was started in 1941 as a Christian pacifist community in opposition to the war. Nowadays it is non-sectarian and has about 75 members ... Read more >

WWOOF Host #7, Karamea

USA | Thursday, 26 Mar 2009 | Views [615] | Comments [1]

I travelled from the retreat center on March 18, to a very rainy very cold day on the northwest coast of the south island. Hamish and Margaret, my hosts, aren't in the wwoof program either, and in fact are good friends of my ex-housemate Lynne. It worked ... Read more >


WWOOF Host #6, Sort Of, Wangapeka Retreat Centre

USA | Saturday, 14 Mar 2009 | Views [922] | Comments [1]

Wangapeka Study & Retreat Center is not an official WWOOF host, but for the sake of convincing those at home that I am back as a productive member of society earning my keep, I'll just stick with the title. I stayed at Wangapeka for about 6 days ... Read more >


North of the South Island

Sorry it's been so long since I made an entry: computer access has been difficult as of late. After leaving Christchurch for the second time, I looped north along the east coast to the top of the South Island and then counter-clockwise along the north ... Read more >
