    Marrakesh, seriously?! Oh my God, you have been *so* busy since I temporarily vanished from the blogsphere. I didn’t think I had been gone that long, but there is such a wealth of beautiful images and marvelous wonders in your postcards that I am quite overwhelmed. Oh, how I wish I could go with you someday… But it is such a privilege to glimpse your journeys even from my small little world.

    And also, a belated but deeply grateful thank you for your kind thoughts about my brother.

    I love New Zealand, but I envy anyone in the UK and Europe for the ability to see so many wonderful places without travelling far.
    Memories of fourteen hour flights one after the other in cramped cattle class :(
