Geographically = Dunedin, New Zealand. A small "University" town and the students have now finished for the year. December graduation being the swansong as the summer heat rolls in.

Mentally = I found myself trying to find a way through the maze of leaves just as a game. Then realized it was a rare moment where I didn't feel time pressure, like I normally do. It was nice to just sit and let my mind wander.

Thank you for the encouragement to step outside!

It sounds fabulous. I could so use some 24 degrees C right now. I'm in Canada.

1) are you a student, just finished for the year? If yes, a student of what?

2) How did you become acquainted with hubski?

My father spent some time in Vancouver, he likened it to our Queenstown albeit much larger! I'm very poorly travelled compared to him, unfortunately, I've only graced NZ and Australia. Canada is on an ever-expanding list though. Is it bitterly cold and snow-blasted??

1) Sadly my student days are done! I graduated from the same University in 2012, but I now work there. It's amazing to see the young people in their regalia, marching down the street. Every ceremony, the town comes to a halt to let them take the stage for the afternoon.

2) That's a tough one. I think it was around 2015, and I was trying to find something Kleinbl00 had posted in Reddit once upon a time. I forget what it was, but it resonated with me then, and I wanted to read over it. I searched what I could remember, and one of the hits was actually a link to Hubski. I checked it out, liked what I saw, and lurked forever more.

It depends very much on where you are -- although potentially everywhere can be bitterly cold and snow-blasted. Vancouver is milder.
