First I first saw “on the way” as this week’s theme, I already had in mind what I was going to show and tell. Whenever I get into my car and into the driver’s seat, I usually text and send a message to whoever I’m about to meet to tell them “on my way” or “omw” for short (everything’s shortened nowadays). So my original plan was to include a picture of what my car interior looks like. But then, I thought, that’s actually a little boring. When I saw the example used on the Daily Post page and saw the beautiful Dutch scenery of the tulips from a bird’s eye view, I decided that I am going to talk about this picture instead.
Here we were on the first day of our New Zealand trip and fresh off the plane from Hong Kong. We had just finished lunch at Master House Chinese Restaurant and back on the tour bus in Hamilton, New Zealand and off to our first stop at the Waitamo Glowworm Caves. I’ve mentioned this before in my social media but the highways in New Zealand are nothing less of spectacular. Everything is colourful, green, lush, calm, and beautiful. Just look at the view! At home in Toronto, all the roads are grey and industrial-like. Everywhere I looked, it was like a painting. You could look beyond the green hills and see the light blue mountains in the background. It was truly remarkable. This view almost makes travelling “on the way” not only more memorable but something to take pleasure in.
