After speeding around Christchurch trying to find a petrol station open at 3:30am, we at last dropped off our rental car and made our way to the airport. Leaving David to continue on with my own journeys through Australia and Asia was difficult, to say the least. This trip brought us closer together each day, and he never ceased to inspire me. I’m honored to call this kid my brother.
Thank you for encouraging me through our crazy hikes.
Thank you for being by my side as I conquered my fears.
Thank you for the endless laughs and deep conversations.
Thank you for capturing our journey perfectly and for putting up with my endless photos. (Shameless plug — check out David's portfolio here, as it's pretty fantastic!)
Thank you for always being up for an adventure.
David, thank you for being the incredible, supportive, and patient man that you've become. Continue to be the strong, passionate person I know you to be, and we will kick CF's butt together.
Our outstanding New Zealand trip couldn’t have happened without the help of many extremely kind and generous people. I want to extend an extra special thank you to Air New Zealand and the YHA Hostels in particular for being so supportive of our adventure. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
