I know when I started this Blog it was to focus on (mostly my) running. Been getting a little sidetracked the last few days - today especially.
I was born and raised in New Zealand. Having chosen to move to and live in Colorado over 15 years ago - where I intend on staying - there are certain things that I don't do, see or experience here that I did growing up in New Zealand.
My parents have been visiting for a few weeks - has been good to catch up with them with what is going on back there and bringing back memories.
So, I did some trolling of YouTube earlier and these 4 videos do a decent job of giving a slice of what New Zealand life is like. What they do, watch and experience, as well as just how pretty the country is.
First up - w/ no end to the NFL lockout in sight, maybe we could get our fix watching Rugby instead....
Next, the New Zealand Accent and hard work ethic - best expressed in this commercial (Plus if you listen carefully at the end you'll hear a friendly dig at Aussies)
Then there is the scenary.....
And last - back to the running theme - a video of trail running in the South Island of New Zealand.
