Yesterday I gave a presentation on New Zealand culture in the 3rd grade classes at my Mom's school. It seriously made me miss everything about it. I let all of the kids take off their shoes during the presentation as to follow custom in New Zealand. I wore a lava lava and served kiwi fruit at the end of my presentation.
At work I have met several people from New Zealand I am always sure to stop them and talk about one of the best places in the whole world!
Moral of the story, if you haven't been to New Zealand -GO! Everybody needs to see one of the most beautiful places on earth.
