My favorite player is Sébastien Chabal. He plays third line ( nunber eight). They have been selected to play in the world cup in New Zealand .Sébastien Chabal plays rugby in the Racing Métro club in Paris.His team is very famous in France.He played in England a few years ago
Now, I propose a suggested tour itinerary in the towns where my favorite team will playing.
1- As soon as you arrive at Auckland Airport, take the ferry to go to NORTH SHORE CITY where the french rugbymen will play their first match . Enjoy the beautiful beaches and if the weather is bad , you can do shopping in modern aeras of New Zealand’s fouth largest city .
After France /japan , you have to take the bus to Napier
2-NAPIER ( Sunday September 18 , 20.30) In 1931, Napier was destroyed by a terrific earthquake , and today , is the mondial capital of the Art Deco style. Located in the Hawke’s Bay known for its wines and food ; you can find local products as green olives , fruit, seafood and of course the gannets colonies.
Before the third match on the Auckland Stadium “ Eden Park”, I advise you to leave the coast and go to the Taupo Lake .
Take a all day for going to the Taupo Lake ; this lake is noted for stocks of brown trout and rainbow trout. It is one of the most important place in the world for fishing the trouts.
After the fiever and the noise of the Haka , a fishing day will make you fine.
4-AUCKLAND ( Saturday September 24, 20.30)
Auckland is famous for tis incredible beaches so big and its large bay .Auckland is a real paradise for nautic activities.
In fact, Auckland
means the “towns of sails” ...You know, in Auckland , the number of inhabitants ‘ships is the highest of the world.
Just minutes away from downtown go to the KELLY TARITON’S ANTARTIC ENCOUTER and underwater world for an interactive experience of the Southern oceans. Visitors are sure to see penguins, sharks and many other species of fish.
And be careful, in the suburb of Auckland city, there are 48 sleeped volcanos! ...Don’t awake them!
5-WELLINGTON ( Saturday October the first , 18.00 )
The major tourist attractions in Wellington are 20 minutes walk away from the city center .
You have a lot of things to visit : TE PAPA MUSEUM, the national museum of New Zealand , Lord of the Rings filming sites. You can also go and look for the “kiwi” that’s incredible and so beautiful bird that can’t fly !
MY FAVORITE TEAM
It's a very traditional dance from of the Maori of New Zealand .At the beginning it was a dance performed to impress the adversaries. With vigorous movements , grimaces , grunts , cries and stamping of the feet .
I like very much to see the All Blacks befor a match doing the Haka . I find them very frightening .
The Maori of New Zealand used to tattooing all the body and some tattooing : of them even the face. This tradition comes from Polynesian way of life .This tattoos were useful to ricognipe the people: like an identity card .
The tattoo one a warrior's face is called Moko .All the " Moko" are different . They depend of the social class and also of the family .
