When I was in New Zealand, I was so out of my usual routine of going walking every morning but…..yes, here comes the ‘but’, it was soooo cold in the mornings, often frosty or foggy.
My nice warm bed was much more enticing.
Well… it happens!!!
I was making up for it in other ways because most places I stayed at, I just parked the car at my accommodation and walked everywhere.
The first time I walked from the road level up a very steep drive to the first level where the car was parked, I reckon it must have looked so funny.
Picture this… red faced, puffing, oh and had to stop and look at the view a few times just to catch my breath you know, haha!!!
By the time I’d gotten to the next level with steps, one of the residents wanted to chat. That was so funny, here I stood puffing, sweating and all he could say was, ‘that’s a really steep drive, isn’t it!’
After catching my breath, I headed up to my apartment with more steps.
From the carpark level to my apartment was 33 steps.
