Chillin’ In the Virus’s Shadow

Post by Ang Vaiana

Hey I’m still alive, I survived the airport aren’t you proud??!! I had some Xanax (calm down it was prescribed to me) and that stuff works, baby. Enough about that though since the thing you are here for is what the heck is going on with my time in Auckland.

Post by Caroline Wilcox

I have been in Christchurch for just about two weeks now and it feels like I have been here forever. Let me take you through my journey so far because it has been a TIME.

I've decided that I want to instead set a list of intentions that will guide my journey in Christchurch, NZ while allowing me to maintain a pressure-free & positive mindset.
