So, I realize this isn’t directly related to New Zealand, but… hey it’s my blog.
I know that people say that our sense of smell is the strongest when it comes to memory recall, or something along those lines, but I had an interesting experience on the bus coming back up from Wellington that had to do with sound.
Somewhere around Levin, a song came through my earbuds that I some how wasn’t expecting to hear. It’s interesting that songs that you normally associate with one place- say by the Kooks that is connected with dark, stuffy rooms- can exist in other places, like the bright country side of New Zealand. It made me a little nostalgic, but then it also made me think about how far away I am from that place and time— literally and figuratively.
