Or 'Hello - good day' in New Zealand. Welcome to my travel blog, let me begin by telling you a little bit about my trip. I made a decision to change the direction my life was going by purchasing a one-way ticket to New Zealand in November 2011. I had a great job and a fantastic group of friends in Olympia, but I couldn't shake the feeling of being stuck, like I wasn't ready to settle down yet. I had saved up some money, didn't have a house or kids, so I decided to take a break from my career to travel.
One of my passions is fresh local food: growing it, cooking it, sharing it, etc. I heard about the WWOOFing (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) program, a program where you work on organic farms in exchange for room and board, and thought it sounded like a fun way to travel and an exciting opportunity to meet and learn from local people. I am excited to see how it feels to work outside and see the day to day operations of several local distributing farms.
This is my first blog (eek!) so bear with me. I will try to update as much as possible and hope to wow you with colorful descriptions and photographs. Thanks for reading.
