Farewell New Zealand, Hello New York City

A Long Flight to the PhotoWalk

New York PhotoWalk Details Here on Google+. And Event Details on Facebook here.

I leave today for a series of long flights that will end with me arriving at the PhotoWalk. I start in Queenstown (airport code ZQN – I think they were running out) and then go to Auckland then Los Angeles then New York City. I don’t know how many hours or miles it will be, and I don’t think I wanna know!

Daily Photo – Sunset in Milford Sound

I slept in my sleeping bag under the stars this night. It was very peaceful after seeing the pink milky sound under Mitre Peak.

I took this right before I left New Zealand down in Milford Sound. I was in a bit of a hurry (you know how things get rushed before a trip), and I left the house without my tent. All I had was a sleeping bag, but it’s a good one.

I slept under some trees that were tall and seemed to be leaning inwards while I looked up. Not long after that, I fell asleep…
