Going through some old holiday photos, I realise we have SO MANY of them. Some sparking some good memories, others we have no recollection of! With digital cameras, snapping a picture has been too easy and we just snap anything and everything – well, at least that’s the case for me. And in dong so, each photo seems to lose some value.
But there are some, that gives you the “Aha” moment. Like this sign post SS captured during our holiday in New Zealand back in 2009.
I recall just standing there at the north-most tip of New Zealand, soaking in the absolute vastness of the sea and feeling rather insignificant actually, trying to work out which part of the earth we were – where was Sydney, where was London, there is a city called Bluff??. It was a bit of a lightbulb moment for me honestly, since I was so used to seeing where city is located in perspective of a 2D map, or the old school globe or google maps. Now, I am starting to sound a bit dumb. But honestly, are you able to just stand where you are and confidently point to where you think London is or where Japan is? It took me about 10 minutes to decide and I am still unsure.
Btw, I cannot wait for the holiday season in December. This year has been particularly taxing. I am pretty sure, we won’t be taking an international holiday but a break is still a break, yea? Where are you heading this holiday season?
