The last minute details are dealt with, the students are at the airport and they board the plane. We follow them on their flight. The trip to New Zealand takes them to Vancouver, Honolulu and Auckland New Zealand. It is a long challenging flight. Most have not flown before, everything is new. We get their comments and follow their conversations. Some may bring a child. We will get their reaction to the flight. We arrive in New Zealand and the first contacts are made. We follow the youth as they meet... [see more] new people and discover the Maori culture. We eavesdrop on their conversations and get an understanding about their excitement and wonder of being so far from home and meeting people who are different but in so many ways the same. We follow them as we board the flight for the next leg of the journey that takes us to Australia.
