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

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
    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"?

    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.
