The world is ahead …

Let’s start with a confession: I’m not quite sure why I write this, or what I should write. The main purpose is to inform you that I’ll be on a hiatus for a while … because I’m going on a long holiday to celebrate my university graduation. And it’s not some staying-at-the-beach-holiday.

It’s the Middle Earth experience. I’m going to New Zealand.


It’s only me, a rental car and a whole country to be explored. Pretty nice after months of „you’ve got to do this until that“ and „make sure to learn that as well“ and all that stuff.

And I’m freaking excited!!! And a bit scared, to be honest. I’ve never travelled that far on my own – after all, it’s literally the other side of the world!

I didn’t mean to write anything at all at first because I was a bit jazzed (yeah, a bit, of course only a bit). Maybe it’s the fault of the half-full bottle of Bailey’s I had to empty before my holiday, but I wish you a happy time! I’ll check my diverse accounts from time to time probably, but don’t worry if you don’t hear much of me! I’ll probably laughing/screaming/crying because I can’t believe that I stepped into Middle Earth …

  1. O-M-G. I can’t tell you how jealous I am. What a wonderful destination, and so well-deserved after the stress and horror of graduating from college. I know for sure that you will have a whale of a time (and hope you will go whale-watching in Kaikoura, btw). Don’t be shy around the Kiwis – they are wonderful, chatty people, and if they invite you to visit them, take them up on it. They mean it.
    And BTW – you silly Billy – I wish you had told me earlier, I would’ve given you a lend of my Hobbit location guide book, passed on my travel adapter and anything else that I still have lying around and could’ve been of help for you.
    Oh, and don’t forget to buy yourself an NZ SIM card straight at the airport – really is worth-while having! Otherwise WiFi is available almost everywhere – although you usually have to pay for it. I thought it was worth it, though. It’s a bit late now, but if you have any questions, I’m happy to share anything from my own experience last year.
    Kia ora!

    1. Thank you so much for your advice – but don’t worry, I had the Hobbit Location Guide in my bookshelf even before I’ve booked the flight XD As well as the LoTR Location Guide *ahem* I’m still a bit nervous – okay, okay, sometimes nervous as hell, but I’m also grinning like mad between that. But it’s great and encouraging to hear such nice words!!

  2. What an amazing adventure! It’s great that you’re going by yourself. You will truly be doing what you want, when you want, for as long as you do or don’t want to. Savor your freedom, and each moment. Have a safe trip and a great time.
