BLOG ON HIATUS III

On Monday 10th of July, I’ll start crossing the Pacific Ocean as a passenger on a cargo ship. The whole journey from Tauranga, New Zealand to Oakland, California, takes approximately 18 days. There’s no internet connection on the ship, so I won’t be able to update my blog during the journey.
