Driving through New Zealand was an unforgettable experience. It was 2017 and we just left Queenstown on our way to our next hotel in Lake Tekapo when we came upon this road. Luckily, we rented a car which made it easy to pull over to take all of the photos we wanted. When planning trips, I relish these opportunities to get outside of the main cities as you never know what gems you may come across.
Having a destination in mind is great to accomplish goals, but the journey to get there is just as important. Burnout can happen when our focus on the future is so narrow that we forget to appreciate what's currently in front of us. So, the next time you feel overwhelmed with things yet to come, take a deep breath and open your eyes to your surroundings... You may be surprised on what you find.
