  • 3 Years AGO

Hey Everyone! I apologize for the long hiatus since my last post but I plan to get things back on track! We recently travelled to New Zealand for a 6 game practice series verse the Black Sticks. The trip only solidified my opinion that New Zealand is at the top of the list for favorite places travelled in the World. The Country can somehow make even a parking lot look beautiful. Here are some photos of trip to show you a little bit about the adventures of #tourlife .
