18 New Zealand

Still not well.

I should have lots of ideas for this as my cousin lives in NZ.

But I didn't.

My inspiration came from Australia's biggest loser. Bear with me

When they get to the final 4 they ship them off to NZ to find themselves. Aka chuck themselves off cliffs. Absale down waterfalls hike a million miles with the weight they lost strapped to their backs.

But in ever series they've been given a maori symbol necklace to symbolise something personal to them

So there is always a woman given a fertility symbol who has gone of the show to lose weight to breed.

Etc etc. but my fave symbol is koru. The beginning of life or a new start.

I'm really not happy with it and I might make another card about something else.

That's a great idea! Those reality show are not a total waste after all. :) Nice to pick up things like that. :)

Interesting inspiration for this week's postcard! I like the symbol you've shown on your card, and the meaning behind it.
