Watch Me Turn 30, by Holly C.
I'm a 29-year-old New Yorker who inherited this site from my pal, Holly P., to document the final year of my twenties. Right up until I turn the big 3-0 next January, I'll use this blog to indulge my inner-narcissist by voicing the good (I can date men anywhere from ages 21 to 50 without it being scandalous) the bad (I keep getting ma'amed) and the ugly (is it possible to get cellulite on your stomach?!). Here's to waving goodbye to my youth, accepting adulthood and remembering that every ending is really just a new beginning.

DAY 60  |  March 30, 2007
Okay, I take back what I said about the Tongario Crossing being the perfect hike, because I found one today that is even more perfect. The girls and I signed up for an overnight combo hiking-kayaking trip through Abel Tasman National Park in the South Island.

We rode a water taxi to a remote part of the park and stopped along the way to watch seals sunning themselves on rocky islands. When we arrived at the drop-off point, we had a picnic on the beach (Iíve never eaten so many peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches in my life as I have this year). Then we walked for over four hours on a path that led past pristine beaches bordering the most emerald green water Iíve ever seen and lush rainforest. Tonight weíre sleeping in a communal hut that bunks about 30 people before meeting our tour group on the beach in the a.m. to kayak the rest of the way back. I never knew there were places on earth as breathtaking as this. I want to come back someday.
