@MsChandler:  Bloody kiwis! hahah.. My mum is from Nu Zilund so I have been there numerous times, about 15 – 17 times so far. Always to the South Island. Apart from my family being there, I think about how stunningly gorgeous the scenery is. It is beyond beautiful. I find it quaint (mainly in Chch and the eastern coast) and reminds me of English countryside. Always friendly and welcoming.. very country. Love it! I wish I could go there more often and hopefully heading back over just before Christmas.

My son spent a year living and working in NZ. He loved every minute of it and his pictures show the huge geographical diversity and the great enjoyment of outdoors that’s possible. 

I associate it with beautiful countryside, temperate climates, snowboarding, sheep, earthquakes and vowels. Or the lack of them Wink

MsChandler:  It’s funny because I think Aussie’s and Kiwis have the same view about each other. I lived in Aus and if you asked most around where I lived they’d say the reverse:  “I think the stereotype of Australians here is kind of that they’re a bit more brash and more of a attitude of keeping of with the Jone’s both in a national sense, but also on an international stage. Wheras in New Zealand whenever we succeed we’re all shocked and happy.”   I remember so many aussie’s saying Kiwi’s are brash anad arrogant where Aussie’s are humble lol  too funny!<br /><br />

I think of Pavlova! And the way you say your vowels!!

Lord of the Rings, the Māori, amazing landscapes and of course my really good friend Tony from New Zealand and how insane he is, and his constant use of extremely vulgar curse words which I find hilarious
