NEW ZELAND CHANGED ME
In Year 10, I went to New Zealand as a field trip. Zorbing, playing swoop, caving, free -falling, fishing, playing pinball, visiting the Maori temple, and visiting the Lord of The Ring movie scene amazed me. I fell in love with New Zealand after the trip. I wanted to live there!
Free-fall Maori Temple
As I mentioned, I am an indoor girl, and I hate outdoor activities. BUT New Zealand gave me a new experience, and a new perspective toward outdoor activities! You must be wondering, “What happened? No insects in New Zealand? She didn’t suffer from muscle pain? She didn’t sweat?” There was insects. I had muscle pain. I had mosquito bites. The fact list that I provided above remained the same.
