Blogger's Lament

I feel the need to update
But I don't have time to write;
Time flies living in one place
Restricting a travelers life.

Building friendships and making money
Replace my traveling mission;
Becoming part of a community
And working in my profession.

Daily habits and responsibilities
Take place of aimless games;
Soon I'll be on the road again
Following my dreams.

Climbing All Around

Part of why I came to Wanaka was because of the proximity of the town to the local climbing crag. I knew it was a popular ski town, and thought I would try to get a job at a ski field, but aimed to arrive in time for some climbing before the winter rolled in. I got here in March, in time to catch the tail end of summer and enjoy autumn in its entirety!
