What a trip! 3000 kms. Beginning from the West Coast of the North Island from Waverley, all the way north to Pukekohe, then back down and around the Coromandel, the Bay of Plenty to Gisborne, then south to Carterton, where last Saturday I gave my 25th and last talk of the tour.
I have so many poignant memories of the people I met, the stories I was told, from the many who had been to Alaska, had family there, or who were about to head there; from those to the Māori whānau in Te Kūiti, where Dad had just returned from whaling in Barrow, Alaska. Wow, what a privilege to meet you all. I sincerely hope to meet up with you again.Thank you so much for your interest in my stories, and for sharing yours.
Yes we are heading north again, but not till next May, and yes I am writing another book.
