Today I fly back to Texas! I've had a wonderful time in New Zealand, but I am eager to return to the familiar surroundings, routines, and amenities of home. At last I will no longer be (literally) living out of a suitcase!
Garrett's program lasts one more week in Auckland, and then he has another week to explore more of New Zealand (or perhaps Australia). He is jealous that I get to go back to the States now!
There's no place like home!
