I haven't traveled to the top 2 corners yet, but...

One of my favorite comedians, the late Mitch Hedberg, said, "I want to hang a map of the world in my house. Then I’m gonna put pins into all the locations that I’ve traveled to. But first I’m gonna have to travel to the top two corners of the map so it won’t fall down."

Well, I haven't traveled to the top 2 corners yet, but...I am going to the bottom right corner of the map on WEDNESDAY! Hooray!

Sherry is pretty much amazing and she made this awesome map (color coded, even!) of our journey. It reminds me of the maps at the back of the Bible that show Paul's travels. But our journey will be much faster because we will be using a car. Lucky us.

As you can tell, this only includes 5 days of the 10 (well, 9 and a half, really) I will be there. The other days will be spent around Dunedin, where Sherry and Eric live. I am SO excited!

By the way, I just went into my bathroom to consult my world map shower curtain to try and figure out what countries I need to go to in order to put a pin in the top 2 corners of the map, and I ran into a serious problem. The top 2 corners are the MIDDLE OF THE ARCTIC OCEAN! Don't know if anyone's noticed that before, but that presents a problem. Looks like I'll have to travel to the New Siberian Islands in Russia and some of those uninhabited Canadian islands way up north. They aren't exactly in the corner, though, so I'll probably have to travel to Alaska and eastern Russia so I can tack down the sides, too.


  1. I am so way jealous that you are going to New Zealand! You will absolutely love love love it! Milford Sound is absolutely gorgeous. And in Dunedin there's a Cadbury chocolate factory; that's pretty fun too. Cadbury is better there than it is here. And be sure to eat lots of ice cream, because NZ ice cream is some of the best in the world! But be warned that they'll look at you really funny if you ask for a sample...they don't really do that there :) Have fun, and can't wait to hear all about your trip!

  2. Have fun, enjoy,and take lots of pictures.

  3. I'm so happy for you Jenn! Yay for New Zealand!!! Totally awesome adventure! I hope it was all you dreamed it would be.
