Goodbye Auckland

Discovered the following lines I typed into my notebook while in New Zealand last year. Bought my first ever car to travel at my own pace. I owned it for two months. Don’t intend to buy my second car anytime soon—unless I’m moving in, of course.

Here I’m sitting on the brink of Auckland. Ordered my last meal a moment ago: BBQ ribs and fries. Concluding a week of eating out. Burgers, Pizza, Burritos. Leaving for the country side—camping gear onboard—I’ll be going back to cooking my own meals out of the back of my wagon. A 1999 Toyota Vista Ardeo. Not that you cared, a funny car nonetheless.
