Hi Everyone! Tonight I went out and saw Zootopia, Disney’s (not Pixar’s!) newest animated family film. I remember laughing at the trailers a few months ago, and after seeing a pile of good reviews I decided to just commit to the $10 investment in my entertainment. After spending double the ticket price on two beers […]Read more "CGI Metaphors, Shakira, and a 15 minute reflection"
Hi everyone, it’s been a long time since I updated this site! I originally launched Adventures of Geo just to chronicle my overseas trips, but I figure that doesn’t mean I can’t make use of it in the off-season as well! Maybe if I actually stick to my guns, you’ll see updates on a semi-regular, […]Read more "Any path will do"
Day 14 Distance Traveled: 180 km (Trip Total: 3393 km) Sorry for the delay in posting this everyone. Day 14 takes me north, from the volcanic lakes of Rotorua to the small coastal town of Whangamata.

The […]Read more "Day 12: Napier to Taupo"
Day 11 Distance Traveled: ~335km (Trip total: 2905 km) Today has been a simple, but very enjoyable day so far, thanks to meeting some more fantastic people. I sleep in late, and check out of my hotel just before the 10am cutoff. The weather is gray again this morning, and I set off under a […]Read more "Day 11: Wellington to Napier"
Day 10: Distance Traveled: ~180ish km (Trip Total: ~2580 km) I wake up quite early to the alarm that actually works on my US phone. It’s only 153 km to Picton where the ferry is set to bring me across the channel to Wellington, but the locals advise me to count on at least 2.5 hours […]Read more "Day 10: Operation Flammenvogel (Matueka to Wellington)"
