  • Why the early settlers loved NZ

    I took this for you all at our national museum back in January, and now I have learned how to post it. Enjoy

    I have considered moving there, to be honest. But, it is a small country (I don't want to contribute to it's overpopulation) and that Kim Dotcom thing soured me.

      NZ's population density is less than America's.

          Tempting. Can I keep my rifle?

            Yes, you can keep your firearms. Just do the wikipedia on NZ gun law, and you'll see whether what you have qualifies.

              NZers are A-OK with Rifles. Just not semi-automatics or handguns.
              Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                most of the people I know that have traveled a LOT, say that NZ is one of their favorite places ever! so there must be something to it.

                  Depends on the type of weapon:

                    My Danish in-laws had to spend 2 months in NZ some 20 years ago or so. They still tell me that if they ever had to move from Denmark, that would be the place they would like to retire in.

                    I would like to visit the place when I have the opportunity. The only thing that bugs me a little is that you have to drive on the left hand side of the road and I suck at changing (I had an experience in the UK that was really bad - some people seem to be comfortable with changing road side but my brain is deficient in that respect ...). I never understood why we had to have differences in traffic direction between countries. Sweden changed from left to right some decades ago all of the sudden at precisely 12:00. After a period of relative chaos, things went pretty well

                      this reminded me that Samoa changed a year or two ago - however apparently two villages decided NOT to change.............. this tickled my funnybone !!!!!!!!!!!

                        I have also considered the land of the Danes but I'll admit Danish has been my least favourite Germanic language. That was some years ago, though, so maybe my opinions have changed.

                        How's the cycling culture in NZ? Too spread out to be "car free"?

                          I was lucky enough to spend 6 weeks driving around NZ, I'll never forget it. Wonderful place!

                            In wellington, a lot of people cycle to work. Seriously, it's pretty cool.

                            I don't because I don't like the wind/rain conditions, but otherwise, yeah. A lot of people cycle regardless of weather.

                              I'm one of those types. I may have to visit and check it out for myself.
