    Leah, I need to learn to adapt, adjust and enjoy the ride, it does not come naturally to me, I plan, plan, plan, have routines and like schedules….must be why I now have high blood pressure. Enjoy your trip.

      I’m very routine driven in my everyday life. But when I travel, that goes out the window (a little anyway). Take a step back, take a deep breath, and just go with things. Now when crazy things happen to me I just think, “That’s gonna make a great blog post!” 🙂

      Thanks for reading, as always.

    I much prefer traveling with someone then traveling on my own. It can be so tiring. You will enjoy New Zealand though We just spent a year there and had a great time!

      Oh, it really is tiring, but it’s also strangely healing for me. I get lost in my thoughts and don’t have to make conversation. I’ve only been in New Zealand for two days and can’t imagine leaving. You are so fortunate to spend a year in this special place. Thanks for reading and commenting. Cheers!

    Leah, thank you for your kind words about Pa! Thank you also for finageling everything so that Matt could be with us where we needed him for a bit. I hope it didn’t ruin too much of your trip. Pa loved New Zealand so much that I’ll bet y’all can feel him when the New Zealand wind blows! I’m sure he is there and I’m sure he is smiling at you both!

      Several years ago, Pa told us that New Zealand was his favorite place on earth. When we told him the last time we saw him that we were headed there, he was so excited for us. He went on and on about how wonderful New Zealand is. Matt was glad we were able to work it out for him to attend. He didn’t need to be any other place.

  • Let us know if Continental owns its mistake and reimburses the expenses you incurred as a result. We’re holding our collective breath…..

      Haha…well, Suzanne, I didn’t even try. I figured it was futile.

    Accidental solo tourist is not bad at all. For me, that would be exciting but of course the preparations would be limited but I guess there’s a great thrill on the things you will experience. If I’m put into this situation, I’ll make sure I’ll make the most out of it to enjoy. Thanks for sharing!
