Away from Home

It’s a funny feeling to be so far from home. No matter how often we travel there are times when you long for your own bed. The New Zealand experience has been interesting. It certainly is a very different culture. I find some of the locals very charming and welcoming. Others are short with us and make me feel very unwelcome, like we are in the way or somehow invading their space. For a country that depends on tourism, it puzzles me when I see someone in the service industry that clearly does not like people. That can’t be good for business. Of course we run into this kind of thing travelling in our country too. Especially when we say where we are from. You can see our fellow Canadians’ backs go up the moment we mention Toronto.

One thing for sure, New Zealand is a beautiful place. Sandfly Bay, New Zealand

That's interesting re the locals. Like you said, it's hard to understand. I don't get the Toronto thing either, especially from people who have never even come here. I'm proud to say I live here!! You're photos are breathtaking though.
