“Ma, do you want to go to New Zealand?” my daughter asked one evening, to my surprise. I immediately said yes. After all, how many youngsters would actually want to travel for three weeks with a 60-year-old senior?

After a few months of planning, I flew to Auckland with my two daughters and one of their friends, who was also a former student of mine. This was back in April 2019.
