Around the World - Fall, 2002
I spent two months this fall traveling around the world.
The destinations included New Zealand, Australia, the Maldives,
Italy, Switzerland, Spain, and England.
I joined up with my friend Nico in New Zealand on
September 25th and we traveled together up through November
7th (Italy). I then stayed with my friends Andrew in Spain and Arda in
The trip was a blast! It's hard to say what
the best part was. For natural beauty, New Zealand and
Tasmania take the lead. For food, Italy wins hands-down (as
always). As far as adventures go, the 330-foot rappel into a
cave in New Zealand and the 20-minute manta ray encounter while
diving in the Maldives stand out. And the Spain and England
visits were made thoroughly enjoyable by just spending time with my
friends there and wandering around the cities.
