  1. Kia ora Courtney,

    Welcome back to the holiday blogging programme! It is so great to have you join us for the third time in a row. Awesome.

    I have really enjoyed reading through your first blog post for the programme. I think that you have done a nice job of incorporating pictures into your blogs that illustrate and really highlight the topics that you are presenting.

    I recognise the 'New Zealand' picture but have never seen the bungy/bungee jumping or All Blacks haka pictures before. Could you please tell me where you found them? They are really good and I'd love to use them again sometime. In order to tell us where you found them, you could post the url for the webpage underneath the picture. That would help us, as readers, to locate the original source. Thanks so much, Courtney!

    I must admit that looking at the picture of the bungy jumper (almost) makes me want to go bungy jumping. She looks like she's having so much fun!

    Would you like to go bungy jumping one day? If so, would you prefer to jump on your own or to jump with someone else? Apparently you can also bungy jump with a friends. It's called 'tandem bungy jumping.' The whole thing seems a bit scary to me. What about you?

    Keep up the great work with your blogging! I can't wait to read your next blog post.
