  • Any New Zealanders here?

    I know of some Aussies, but anyone from New Zealand?

    I read this list today: http://listverse.com/travel/top-20-c...t-new-zealand/

    And it sounds like quite the amazing place. Might knock out Canada for my favorite country, lol.

    #16 was my personal favorite:
    16. New Zealand is a fairly liberal nation with homosexual marriage (Civil Union) being legal and prostitution, soliciting, and brothel keeping being legal. The driving age is 15, the consensual sex age is 16, and the drinking age is 18 (though minors accompanied by adults are allowed alcohol in restaurants).
    badass. I can only think of one other thing that if they legalized would really put them over the top, lol.

    So is there anyone here from there? I'd like to hear about someones personal experience.

    Also, has anyone not from there visited there?

    I wish I had been there. New Zealand has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. If I had enough money to retire and had to do so outside of the United States for whatever reason, that would be the country I'd move to.

    But in answer to your question, I'm guessing there are no kiwi's on this forum.


    Oh, and one other thing: If you hate sheep, don't go there. Ever.

      well, i think i'm ok with sheep, lol.

      and unless/until i start making the big bucks, canada is probably the only other country i'll even be able to get to.

      I just think the place sounded pretty amazing and anyone who has watched the LotR movies has seen a little of the beauty that NZ has to offer.

              Neither is mine, all of those southern states and Virginias were on one trip. I went down to see Talladega, I'm a Nascar fan. My family really only goes to the Poconos or the Jersey shore, and I've been to Niagara falls. I gotta say, if your gonna go there, stay on the canadian side. It is sooooo much cleaner than the US side. Funny story... about a year after our vacation there, my dad, DAD!!!, wet the bed because he was dreaming about using a Canadian Urinal at Niagara Falls. Anyone who doesn't find that funny doesn't have a pulse.

                    2 of my friends worked in New Zealand for a bit, and said it was absolutely nuts. As for the one other thing, so many people smoke there its basically legal. Not nearly the level of marijuana related crimes there as in the US.

                    My favorite part of New Zealand:


                    It's just rolling down a hill in a bubble but it looks really fun and I wanna give it a try.

                            The only thing New Zealand is good for is extreme sports or possibly if you are interested in seeking out a career as a Shephard.

                              I miss the chatbox!!!! (off topic)

                              It was kind of nice being able to say things with no substance, now with no chatbox you have to post things that actually have substance :(
