    Day 738 – The Golden Poplars

    (UK only – photos to come)

    A lovely and – dare I say – welldeserved restday in Queenstown. Apart from a pre-noon walk through the autumn colours in the Botanic Garden, and a long wander in the supermarket while “offer scanning” all the alleys and shelves (‘cos nothing escapes me in the world of bargains, as you’d know by now), I don’t really do an awful lot today. The poplars are beautiful this time of the year. Golden and healthy to look at.

    I hang out most of the evening at the hostel, eating, talking to random travellers who are doing exactly the same, eating, drinking tea, wathching some dumb movie, eating. That sort of stuff…And all this while mentally enjoying not being on the move today, enjoying less input than the normal nomadic bicycle life offers.

    The bed’s soft. The sounds of my room mate’s loud snoring, well, different from the one-man silence that I’m used to in my own polyester world, that is my tent. Kind of cosy, those sounds of dreams…

    On this day..
