One Amazing Thing I've Done

We were on a surfing trip down to the Catlins and when we were sitting out back on of us saw this fin, then loads more. turned out to be a pod of 30 dolphins who surrounded us and started playing with us. surfing the waves along side. That was pretty sweet

Teach, Learn, Share

Just rescently I was woofing in Opotiki, Bay of Plenty. I was living with a Maori family and I was needed to work at their marae for a funeral. That blew my mind how friendly and welcoming everyone was and how true to their culture they were. dont believe everything you see on the news.
