Left a good job in the city…

Well, it wasn’t exactly in the city, but it was a good job – and now I’ve left it. I finished work last week, and now I’m in NZ, enjoying some warmth and sunshine.

A few days in Auckland, time for a haircut and a few booster jabs. Will head up to Whangarei tomorrow, to spend a few days at the beach.

It’s good to be home again – there’s something nice about walking down the street, and every house is different to the one next to it. What a novel idea. Good to catch up with a few old friends too, enjoying the balmy weather, sitting outside well into the evening.

Now that I’ve finished work, things are starting to seem closer, more real – it’s only just over two weeks until I’m on the road! I’m now getting into the living out of a bag stage too. Still got lots of stuff here though, so I haven’t yet had to adjust to having one clean/one dirty. Handwashing’s not too far away though…

For those in NZ, will try and catch up in the next 10 days. For those in the UK, we’ll have to do something on the 16th. Not sure what yet, will probably be fairly low-key though. Starting with a mean hangover might not be a good idea.
