I seem to be very good at starting blogs, and forgetting about them, and then deciding to start them again. Perhaps I should work on being worse at this particular habit, and better at actually blogging. While I work on this particular avenue of self-improvement, here is a New Zealand landscape from my trip through the Catlins in January.
I would, as a side note, highly recommend this remote corner of New Zealand if you find yourself in the country. The region treats you to beaches, caves, penguins, forest, and sea lions who lounge around in the sand without moving until they decide to awkwardly flip sand into the air in an attempt to cover themselves – and is a bit less tourist-heavy than your average beautiful New Zealand location.
