Conor’s Turn


OK, so get this. I am going to travel around the world for 365 days. Kind of like the movie, except not. I am totally psyched to do it, and who wouldn’t be? (Other than my sister…)

A bit about me:

  • I love cheetas.
  • I can’t wait to go to Japan.
  • I’m looking forward to living on a boat for ten days while we’re in the Galapagos.
  • Once our trip starts, I’ll be writing a story as we go (chapters to be posted every week).

I am looking forward most to swimming with sea lions, going on a giant zip line in Peru, zorbing and street luging in New Zealand and visiting Machu Picchu.

Some fears that keep floating in the back of my mind are that you can’t go a year without crying or getting hurt, and it’s harder to deal with being sad when you are away from home. Hopefully I won’t have many sad moments.

I promise my posts will get more interesting when the trip starts and I hope you will want to read them.

Hey, Conor,

I’ve been wondering when we’d hear from YOU! So thanks for checking in & telling us about your own excitement & fears.

Zorbing? You want to do something & I don’t even know what it is.

Looking forward to more blog posts from you in the future, Shirley

Good luck on your adventure. Never forget to look up into the sky, stop walking, take a deep breath, and absorb the feeling of being alive that only long term travel can bring.

When you go zorbing you will have lots of fun my daughter loved it! go to the Karori Bird Sanctuary in Wellington when you visit lots of native birds and reptiles to see.
