Anyone else need a vacation from 2021, already? Me too. Let’s have some New Zealand trivia.
This week, we’re going someplace beautiful, warm, and (effectively) Covid-free. We’re heading to New Zealand for some trivia this week. It’s been on my travel list for a long time and so I wanted to pay them a visit (virtually).
From warm beaches to snowy peaks, New Zealand has a wide variety of topography. It also possesses a varied and interesting history, so let’s dive into some trivia about the country.
Stay tuned for other vacation destination places later on this year so we can travel in our minds and just enjoy ourselves.
Finishing up with New Zealand trivia, please take a moment to fill out the quick survey at the bottom of the page. This helps us to know which topics you like and if the difficulty is ‘just right’.
Your clue for next week’s episode:
What decade gave us Animaniacs, Ren & Stimpy, and Rocko’s Modern Life?
