New Zealand is one of my dream destinations, and I cannot wait to get there one day! To pass the time, I go through my friends facebook pictures (friends who have been to New Zealand, obviously) and seethe with jealously.
In this picture, it’s a double hit because not only does it involve my beloved (imaginary) New Zealand, but it also was taken on a glacier! If you check out “The List” tab above, you will find that stand on a glacier is on my bucket list.
My friend Helena took this shot in 2004 when she was on a whirlwind 1 woman trek around the world after college and before work – the very brilliant idea those in the UK refer to as a ‘Gap Year,’ (it can also refer to a year off between high school and college). It’s a brilliant concept, and something I wish was really accepted in the US – more on that in a later blog post.
Anyway, I just thought it was a cool shot, and I love the idea of being able to climb a glacier in shorts!
