I thought that was the only place in the world that you could get a kiwi, when I was a kid. The Maori people & cricket and Rachael Hunter. I have never been there, but i only know about the Maori because for a while I had NZ on a news feed.

@aussiemum1248: Weirdly enough I find it so much different to Aus! I think our humour is quite different? I’ve got so many family and friends who have gone over to Aus though
@Lollybags: Same! Motorway Patrol is hilarious. Watching them compared to the American versions makes me laugh!
Eeeh this is fun! I figured sheep and scenary would be a big one!
