Auckland, New Zealand
I'm off on a journey. A journey that mum and I had planned earlier this year, just 8 weeks before she passed away..... She had been all over the world and all over her beloved New Zealand, but she had never been to Punakaiki, on the west coast of NZ's south island. Some may think it strange, but I decided to take the trip we planned, with mum's urn in my backpack. I want to grant her that wish and along the way experience the beauty of New Zealand and the kindness of its people. Train, ferry, car and planes will be my modes of transport.
