We flew out of Auckland on the 20th of April, bound for the Cook Islands; a little bit of the tropics and then home. It would be good to be home again and it was definitely time. After 7 months on the road, the concept of home was becoming blurred.
One thing was clear though - we would be back. There were many tracks still to be tramped and many places that we wanted to take a longer, slower look at.
Life's adventure is never over.
