Day 15: Happy New Year 18 Hours Early from Queenstown, New Zealand!

Happy New Year of 2015!

Happy New Year of 2015!

My home is in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida yet I have celebrated the last three New Year’s Eve in Hawaii, Uruguay and New Zealand! Oh where life’s journeys take us! I think I am 18 hours ahead of my baseline East Coast Time Square celebration which I look forward to watching on New Year’s Day here at 6 pm. It really is a small world!

I have much to be thankful for as I look forward to the New Year of 2015. The year flew by and was anchored by golf journeys- starting with the conclusion of the “Journey to Olympic Golf” in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, continuing on with my first organized “East Coast (U.S.A.) Golf Journey, and concluding here in Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand on the “Golf Journey to Australia and New Zealand.”

I am blessed with wonderful, kind and generous people in my life. Each day of 2014 was unique and special because of the people I met along the way or on the golf course and family and friends who have been with me when I am not away from home on a golf odyssey. Thanks for all the loving, the smiles, the hugs and the conversation and interactions. I hope to see you all again real soon!

On Friday, the 2nd of January, I fly up to Auckland for the final segment of the “Golf Journey to New Zealand.” I will be on the move around the North Island for two weeks before flying home to Florida leaving at 5 pm on Thursday, the 15th and arriving at 11 am on Friday the 16th. I know the travel time is longer than that. I guess I will be getting that day back I lost between Honolulu and Sydney a few months ago.

I hope this finds you well, joyous and healthy as we move into 2015! It seems like yesterday that the new millennium started! Where does time go? I look forward to connecting with you again or for the first time sometime soon!

Happy New Year from Queenstown, New Zealand! All the best to you in 2015! (-:   (Facebook Link, Andy Reistetter, 12/31/14)
