I'm excited to see these people again. We share a lot of fun memories.
We saw things that only we can describe. We learned things that only you can do by being in New Zealand. We experienced the Kiwi culture together.
We laughed, sang, and had a ton of inside jokes.
We drank the Kiwi Beer, ate the Maori foods, and learned the lingo of the land.
I recommend all that haven't done so to do a study abroad program..to anywhere. The memories, the people, and the experience is priceless.
