  1. Kia ora Henrietta,

    Welcome to the Winter Learning Journey blogging programme for 2017. It is so great to have you back! I hope that you enjoyed reading about New Zealand on the Tourism NZ website. Did you read anything on the site that surprised you? I was a bit surprised to read that many of the European explorers were scared to sail towards New Zealand because they were worried that they might fall off the edge of the world. It's a bit of a strange thought, isn't it?

    I hope that you will continue to blog with us throughout the holiday. I'm looking forward to learning more about NZ with you as you go...
