|Rugby in NZ|
In the spirit of the Olympics I thought that a sports related article from Lonely Planet was worth sharing.
- Football (soccer) in Scotland and Latvia
- Aussie Rules Football in Australia
- Rugby in New Zealand
- Muay Thai Boxing in Thailand
- Ice hockey in Turkey
- Curling in Arizona
- Skiing in Iran
- Baseball in Uganda
- Dog sledding in Jamaica
The article reminded me of a time that I experienced a sport in an unlikely place. I never had the opportunity to go skiing as a kid. As I got older I had pretty much lost interest. However, when I heard that you could go skiing in Dubai I had to give it a try. (I am not sure most people would really call the tiny slope skiing). The ski slope is inside a massive mall and you can actually see the odd shape of the slope from the outside.
