I’ve been back on Great Barrier Island since last Tuesday after experiencing a great off-Island trip with the youth from Youth Group 2013. There were many laughs, memorable moments and experiences, and the trip turned out to be a bit of a holiday for myself as well.
It’s good to be back home though, there is plenty of work to be done on BENIsLAND and I’m still moving (slowly) forward. Yeah, one could call it even progress. I haven’t done any fishing for a long, long time and haven’t been writing articles frequently either.
The biggest project on BENIsLAND so far is taking more than just shape and I’ll soon write comprehensively about what I learned in regards to building a small home. I’ll be moving into my new place by the end of the month. It appears that I didn’t take many pictures of the scenery whilst on the Youth Trip on the South Island. Yeah, what can I say?, was the train ride from Christchurch to Greymouth via Arthur’s Pass better than a train ride in Germany or Switzerland? I don’t know, it’s all about perception anyway, if you’re blown away by New Zealand’s scenery, you probably haven’t seen much, or you’ll be ‘blown away’ by lots of things…
A few pics to follow:
