A year ago today it was Christmas Day in New Zealand. An incredibly random series of events led us to hike off a mountain. This included me having a little cry on the side of the mountain (I was sick). Once off the mountain Gareth ran about 15km to retrieve our van, I then caught a ride from a lovely American couple who picked Gareth up on the way to the van, and we ended up at Lake Taupo where we spent the rest of the day in bathing suits in the water.
Random? Absolutely. The most memorable Christmas ever? You better believe it.
Whatever you do this Christmas, make sure you laugh, create some memories with those you love, and be content to be exactly where you are.
Merry Christmas from us, straight to you.
Shauna & Gareth
