Ever since I booked my flights I’ve been telling myself I get to go to Spain when spring arrives.
Today I drove across town and thought I’d better pack - spring is here in all its stunning vivid glory.

But apparently I still have to wait another 42 days!

Hmmm no sign of spring in Wellington - though it was quite a nice day - where are you - must be far north!

Auckland. Last week we noticed some trees in Henderson shimmering green, but today's Mt Eden display was stunning. None of our fruit trees are budding yet.
@VNwalking it certainly feels early! But to be totally honest, it was still crispy cold (for us).

Yes two warm days in a row, snowdrops and little lambs, spring is around the corner in Auckland. But I have to wait until next year, in the meantime I'm working to pay for my next trip to Spain.

It was hailing in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday, spring would be lovely. OMG, I pack a month before I travel anywhere. I say pack as it's fun getting excited about it.

Took my pack for a wee outing at the weekend - love feeling it on my back.

@Peter Barker packing only takes me ten minutes because I know exactly what I like to take now.

Oh!! My favorite go-to weekend walk, once upon a time!!! Thank you for posting these gorgeous pics, @Kiwi-family. It's grand to see the tussock and the snow on Ngaruhoe. (Now I am TOTALLY homesick - but at the same time happy you got to go, and on such a beautiful day.)

You'll be plenty fit for that Camino if that's what you're up to, that's for sure.

This year our spring school holidays don't finish until mid October. Is it too late to go then? Will I or won't I? I've already been on one long camino this year! Next year a new grand-baby and I'm engaged to babysit while Mum works part time - so a trip o/s is unlikely.

I know what this forum's response will be!

"Next year a new grand-baby" means you should go this year in October!

What route is next on your list?

A survey would close down the choices. I should start my own thread, I don't want to hijack Rachael's any further.

And thank you @Kiwi-family for the beautiful photos. I can feel your anticipation.

@VNwalking ignoring the fact that we have to drive 5 hours to get there, I think I might join you in calling this my favourite weekend walk....Tongariro Crossing would be a close second (but Tama Lakes is easier so it wins on a lazy day!)
@Kanga of course YES. Wouldn’t it be fun to meet on the Salvador?!
