Cokers Backpackers hostel has hallways that twist and turn in what appears to be all directions until you get yourself orientated. I was not worried about this as it always led me to another discovery as their walls are covered with quotes.
I decided to photograph them and have kept copies in my visual journal
Some quotes I felt were better than others but it was a little adventure to take a stroll around the building. When traveling your head is always in a slightly different space so my morning thought for the day took on greater meaning.
They reminded me of the Wisdom of the Ages project and how much I enjoy quotes. Sorting out these photos actually prompted me to fix the Wisdom of the ages blog. So I am happy to say it is back up and working now.
Other travelers enjoyed these too and they definitely added a little character to the place.
As we ventured out around Christchurch we often spotted daily thoughts chalked on boards outside shops. I warned you I don’t take normal holiday snaps. Jerry is writing up his impressions of the trip too but I thought some readers might enjoy these additions to my visual journal!
