@MsChandler:  How’s the humour different?  A kiwi once told me you guys were big on self deprecating humour, but I think that’s quite Australian too.

For all our differences, I think NZ is more like Australia than anywhere else (and vice versa).

I’m not sure why, but of all the those policing shows, NZ Motorway patrol is my favourite.

@aussiemum1248:  i think it’s quite different too… not just the humour but a general culture thing. NZ is essentially a small town (compared to Aus) and that breeds something different. There’s a sense of punching above our weight and a sense of doing things our way rather than the status quo. As in – Aussies are quite brash and expect to do well on the world stage, NZ is constantly surprised by our successes. I’m actually doing a terrible job of describing it but its actually really hard to put into words.  It’s actually what I miss most about living in NZ though, that pride for my country that will never go away.
