Dorky Geeky Nerdy #104 | New Zealand

Anyone else need a vacation from 2021, already? Me too.

This week, we’re going someplace beautiful, warm, and (effectively) Covid-free. We’re heading to New Zealand for some trivia this week. It’s been on my travel list for a long time and so I wanted to pay them a visit (virtually).

Stay tuned for other vacation destination places later on this year so we can travel in our minds and just enjoy ourselves.

  1. I genuinely didn’t get enough time to play this podcast until today, so apparently I also need that vacation! I don’t know anything about the Kiwis other than to not call them Australians.

    Dorky – 7 correct, 7 point – You led me into a false sense of security with that first question, before making me realize I know pop culture more than I know New Zealand.
    Geeky – 2 correct, 4 point – I kinda thought I would have gotten more of these.
    Nerdy – 0 correct, 0 point – I am not surprised I didn’t get any of these.

    Still, I saw their famous trilogy of travel advertisements, and I want to go there. Plus, I read that their contact tracing for COVID was so on-point that they were able to trace their last outbreak (of four people) to the specific button on the elevator where it originated. (Though I went to search that news article up to provide reference, but can’t find it, so clearly I am mis-remembering it.)

      You are correct about their Covid status. They did an amazing job with contract tracing and isolation. Amazing what happens when your leader isn’t a complete, brain-dead moron. But I digress. I’ve wanted to see NZ ever since LotR came out. My wife’s cousin went a few years ago and they loved it. The people, the places, the food. Everything.
