Time is such a funny thing!
I arrived in Auckland, New Zealand, on September 7th, 2009 at 5:25 am. One full hour ahead of schedule, which was good because my flight was only 12 hours instead of 13.
But it struck me as weird/funny that I completely skipped on September 6th this year. My flight left on September 5th and I crossed the international date line, so I lost one full day. Gone!
Of course, I didn’t really lose any time. My life keeps moving forward as if nothing had happened. I only lost a day, which is entirely a construct of human imagination.
I already figured out the hostel situation and made a few new friends. Plus, I’m meeting up with Andi, a friend from New York who has been living in Auckland for the past year.
Having a great time!
