More Thoughts About New Zealand

The view out to sea from Larnach Castle, Dunedin

I’ve made a scrapbook from the paperwork, brochures, pamphlets, and other bits-and-pieces I collected while in New Zealand. It was a rather pleasant experience, being both a creative endeavour and another way to relive our travels. It’s not something I’ve ever done before, but if we ever get to travel overseas again, I plan on doing it again. I kept a travel diary as well. You think you will never, ever forget such wonders, but human beings are forgetful beasts. Memories fade, particularly when piled up on top of each other.

One response to “More Thoughts About New Zealand

  1. Having lived there for many years, my memories will not fade. That view right there, I know it all too well. Some of my best (and also my very worst) memories are locked onto that tiny patch of sand.
    But yes, you’re doing it right. Hold them dear.
