Today was an anniversary. My first niece was born on the same day I flew out of New Zealand for the first time as a 17-year-old. It was the start of some wonderful adventures, adventures I couldn’t have believed possible. And although I didn’t meet L for another year, but it doesn’t seem to have affected our relationship! She has also inherited the love of travel, which delights me. As the memories of all those years ago, and the friendships made at the time, continue to delight me too.
