A-Z Archive II: A Challenge

Starting round two for the A-Z Archive, I have decided to focused on physical locations. Each letter will be a place.

A for Auckland, New Zealand.

What better way to experience Auckland than watching the match between All Blacks and Wallabies? I got a ticket that was a last minute release from unoccupied press box seating. What a view!

A-Z Archive: U Challenge

U for umbrella. The best moment was earlier in our trip when we saw four or five scooters with pairs of riders on each. The people on back were holding identical purple checkered umbrellas. We all double over in laughter and couldn’t whip out a camera in time. This is the best we were able to get since.

Luang Prabang, Laos.
