Stopped here for an early morning espresso en route to the start of my 4-day lone Banks Peninsula Trek in New Zealand. This moment stands out so vividly to me because I was the only person around, and thus able to tap into a state of contemplation before embarking. This day, and the long, sometimes lonely days of trekking to come, changed me permanently - for the better. If you are at a fork in the road, figuratively speaking, I urge you to spend time alone. Take a trip, camp for a night or two, or find some way to find stillness and solitude. These moments heal and strengthen us. | Akaroa. 🇳🇿 South Island, New Zealand. #geographicallyrestless
