So we have a few days left before real life (as real as it can get in Austrailia for us) starts. Two days to be exact. Lets enjoy it properly! Skål!
The end of our trip in New Zealand was interesting I must say! After a cyclone, flooding, some stranded tourists and a bottle of Jäger we had to rush to the airport being time optimists and forgetting to clean the car properly. We did however effectivly avoid the fine of 600 dollars and
I expected New Zealand to feel a bit more european, especially after travelling South America, but it feels like an extra state to USA. The achitecture is the same as the countryside in Nevada with premade movable houses in bleak colours. New Zealand definitely needs some architects to immigrate
Dinner. Just like that.
Breakfast in a beautiful place and a health treatment for saras cold. Ginger tea with lemon and magical waipua honey (don't know how the magic works though...) an egg and porridge with cinnamon and fresh apples. Buen provecho!
We took the ferry south. With broken sleep and arriving early in the morning we decided to drive to a free campingsite (a parkinglot) to close our eyes for a couple of hours before driving to the north point of the south island. It is weird, I think you get kind of numb after traveling for a

Omg. Driving on the left side of the road... wish us luck! 🤤
So jetlaged and tired I managed to unpack my backpack and take out my underwear bag and leave it on the side, walk away and not realize until I woke up today. So it is gone. Everything. Underwear, bras, socks. Do you know how expensive it is to buy everything new? What a waste of money... no
It started as a joke; Sara, if we don´t get a PhD position, let's travel the world! Eat, drink, see new places and avoid all the responsibilities of growing up for another year. I always dreamed of traveling but there was always something tying me to Sweden. Studies, a person, a home. Today, I don't even own a bed (Bella is safely spoiled at my parents place). Weird, some would say ― liberating, I would say. So the dream became a joke, the joke became reality, and now reality is just around the corner! And you know what? I am ready, let the dream begin!
