The most beautiful, safe country in the world who have a neat national anthem and an excellent rugby team commonly known as the ALL BLACKS. It is a misconception that we 'hate' Aussies. We do not hate Aussies nor do they hate Kiwis. We are neighbours. Aussies are the familliar to us in our little country separated from the rest of the world. ;)
New Zealand happy things include, stubbies (short shorts), jandals, bbq's, rugby, beaches, buzzy bee toys!, pavalova, icecreams, L&P (yum), No.8 Wire, and pineapple lumps.
Most New Zealanders are friendly laid back folk who live for summer. And hey..we don't have accents, you do. ;)
"love thy neighbour"
"Kia ora, tamariki ma"-phrase most of us learn in primary school meaning "goodmorning children"
I liked this quote that I found on someone elses definition "With all the shit going on in the world today, sometimes I just wanna go live in New Zealand"
You got it!
