(162-164) I'm Back
I got home on June 29th...so just a couple of days ago.
(162) I spent my first night at home uploading 1500 photos and showing and explaining them to my family.
(163) The next day (yesterday) i slept in til 10 am. I then spent the whole day on my computer uploading photos to photobucket and facebook. I spent hours catching up on three episodes of the bachelorette. My day flew by. And i am not use to it staying light so late. That is surly throwing my time off..not to mention the 19 hour time difference. I didn't fall asleep until 3am.
(164) I woke up at 11am when mom came in my room and left the cat to get me up. I poured a coup of coffee and finished that paper that i planned to write before i left. The benefit of writing it after i got back: i actually enjoyed writing it. I had a better understanding of Maori culture. I ate lunch once the paper was finished. Me and mom went out and i turned in my paper and journal then we got our nails done. I got back home and found out my 3 besties are all going to be home this weekend. So much happiness right around the corner.
New Zealand was absolutely wonderful.
My words can't even begin to explain how much fun i had, the awe i was in, or the friendships i made.
Photos can't capture this country's beauty and vibrant colors.
I wish the trip would have been longer and that all of my friends and family could have been there to experience everything i did.

Over the next few days i will try to give a recap of my 21 days abroad.
