50 Blog Challenge #2: Antipodean Crossing

I feel I should start this with a mini-disclaimer: I have known this blogger since the age of 11 when she owned a pet rock named Jamie. I think  I would enjoy her blog even if I didn’t know that.

My friend Sarah’s in her second year at Cambridge studying history. This summer she’s going to New Zealand to research and volunteer at places like the Auckland War Memorial Museum, to learn more about military history and soak up the colonial vibes (I do not know why I am surprised. She is the youngest Dad’s Army fan I know and she’s spent many a weekday evening at cadets). She’s going by herself for three whole months, travelling across NZ with a stopoff at Hobbiton, so what else was there to do but start a blog chronicling her journey?

You can read her plans, adventures and New Zealand news stories compilations here (see comments sections for me begging to stow away in her suitcase). Gems include cartoons of kiwis and a page dedicated to the shit she needs to get done. I am considering adding something similar here to keep track of new swearwords.

Basically, if you like travel, indie blogs or cartoons on indie travel blogs, you know where you should spend your time from now on.
