sensory overload

The past week+ on New Zealand’s South Island has been a string of stunning alpine scenery and pristine beaches. I am feeling overwhelmed. Maybe I’ll spend tomorrow at the Burger King next to our motel, just to put a stop to all the prettiness.

We spent the past four days “tramping” near Christchurch. It was as good as hiking can get. Great scenery, entertaining hiking companions, cozy hobbitesque cottages to sleep in. This country kind of freaks me out. It’s almost too nice. Where’s the edge?
