As far as I know there are only really a handful of New Zealand bloggers posting the same sort of thing that I do, perhaps I just haven’t come across them but its seems that not many people have because the amount of questions I get about living in New Zealand and what it’s like is unreal. Some of you may have noticed I disappeared for a few days, I headed up north to attend a funeral with my mum and on the way I managed to snap a few photos, they are nothing special I just thought some of you may be interested. All of the photos were taken either in Gisborne or on the main highway there, so all these photos are what you would typically see driving around the lower half of the north island.
Also, I just wanted to mention something really funny I saw on the internet the other day – can’t remember where, but someone from overseas was asking if we celebrate Christmas in New Zealand because its summer over here during December: Christmas isn’t about celebrating the weather? Personally I find it hilarious the assumptions people have about NZ, I also saw someone asking if we had the internet over here because apparently we are ‘behind the times’ and a fair few people think there are just a bunch of sheep and hobbits running riot down here, hopefully this can put your mind at ease and reassure you that it’s pretty typical here in NZ.
