So many....Up to Spirits Bay, round the top half of the South Island, short weekend trips to Kapiti and Wairarapa
Short trips: Seeing that the weather will be fine on Saturday, packing a bag, grabbing a box of food & drink and GOING. Once my eyes see the green they relax and I feel free. And something serendipitous always happens! Long trips: the planning, the months of anticipation, the gathering of good friends, the events, the relaxation of weeks away from the computer.
Being in a 'new' environment freshens the senses and therefore the mind
When the sun shines I usually grab my car keys and head out to the countryside somewhere - One of my favorite (very) short trips is just up to Pukerua Bay - or Makara - on a sunny late afternoon...make a fire and cook a couple of chops on it.
