Catch Flights, Not Feelings

Hi, everyone!

Sammie & Paige here.

We’ve arrived in Sault Ste. Marie, ON and are waiting to board our flight to Toronto. From there, we will be heading to Aukland, NZ. Everyone here is excited to get going and get this 20+ hour flight over with. New Zealand, for those who don’t know, is known for its beautiful scenery and cultural diversity. It is also the filming site for the Lord of the Rings movies (for any fellow nerds out there). Our group is eager to get in the air and begin our new adventure! Our trip will include exploration of both ecological and health aspects of New Zealand. Keep watching this blog for more updates on our travels and activities!
