NZ's the place to be

Just amazing. No woman has ever paddled around New Zealand's South Island, and only three men have, and now three sheilas are making a go of it, all within the next few months.

I mentioned Freya Hoffmeister's journey a few posts back, and now the renowned Justine Curgenven (Wales) and to me unknown Barbro Lindman (Sweden) are also taking up the challenge.

My responses are entirely irrational:
  • One was fine, now three are 'competing', and I'm not one of them
  • Three sheilas and not one of them is a Kiwi, and I'm not one of them (but I'm a Kiwi)
  • This trip is probably one of the most challenging any paddler could make, and I'm not one of them
  • With the most beautiful scenery to view, and I'm not one of them
Kia Kaha!

Cheer up, Sweets, I'm not one of them either! If I was the whole world would be irrational! Wait a minute... LOL

Irrationality is necessary to stay sane. But those sound like perfectly rational thoughts to me!
