Ultimate throw back thursday

Three years ago today the New Zealand All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup. And, I was there! Looking back on it I get goosebumps still. Setting the goal, finishing school, getting accredited, walking into Eden Park for the first time, amazing mentorships, tons of km's in a ricochetty ol car, beautiful vistas, mind blowing rugby, lots of laughs, open arms of old friends, thousands of photos, all these memories rush through my mind all at once when I look at the photos of the final game. And the AB's winning was the ultimate ending to the most amazing adventure.
