In praise of slow…

It’s affecting me – my snail home.

After circumnavigating first the Coromandel then East Cape, 80kms an hour feels like a panic attack for both of us. We’ve taking to tootling happily along in the 50km speed bracket. We risk becoming a traffic hazard – we may never be able to face a motorway again.

Snail is happy – diesel engine chugging sweetly along. I’m becoming addicted to life in the slow lane.

About vjayne

I'm a writer / photographer usually based on Waiheke Island in New Zealand but currently traveling the country in "snail" - my mobile home and office. Along the way, I'm telling stories about the places I see or people I meet and building up a beautiful library of photos - of New Zealand's coastline and mountains, its walking tracks and wildlife. I'm happy to supply illustrated stories to New Zealand and offshore publications. My work background includes editing business and lifestyle magazines, crafting features on topics ranging from management and marketing to frogs and fashion, creating organisational narratives and promotional literature.
