#Write30 Challenge (Day Five): A place I would live that I've never visited

Well, today is the day I force my students to join me on this writing adventure.

If you're the parent of a kid in my class, encourage them to show you their work, both as a way to hold them accountable, and as a way for you to encourage their writing.

They'll be starting on the first prompt today, and here's a list of the prompts in case you want to follow along.

However, I'm on day five, and today's prompt is an easy one: Name a place you'd live that you've never visited.

The answer for me is hands down New Zealand.

Look at it. Just look at it. Is that not incredible? 

"But Travis, we have sights like that too, right here in the states. And we also have more advanced technology and more than four television stations."*

But here's what we don't have. 

That's Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, otherwise known as Flight of the Conchords. 

If you've never heard these guys, just google them and watch one of their videos. They are hilarious. Match that with the breathtaking scenery, and you've got a combination I'd kill for. 

If someone told me right now they'd sell me a house there for about a hundred bucks and pay for my flight, my family would be Kiwis so fast it would make your head spin. And I'd join right in with them hating Australia because I hate Australia already because everything in Australia is designed to kill you. 

So that's it, this is a short one, but it's in the books. Love you guys.
