In February of 2015 we took a trip to the southern island of New Zealand. It was a trip of firsts: the first long-haul flight I’d ever taken, the first flight over an ocean, the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, the first time driving on the right hand side…. A decade ago this is not the kind of trip that I thought I would ever be taking.

 

I’m glad it happened. It definitely set off a lot of things that are still maturing even today.
