That’s right I am kiwi born & bred, that means I’m from New Zealand (for those who don’t know).
I am proud to be a kiwi, taking my blog to the world and proud to live in Auckland (*cough* 4th equal best city in the world to live in), New Zealand truly is an amazing place. ***
Where did the term Kiwi come from? It comes from the native bird Kiwi – also you may have heard of the Kiwifruit which is grown in New Zealand and marketed to the world (truth be told it originates from China but was cultivated here).
I was brought up in Otago, originally around Queenstown & Glenorchy. Both of which happen to be my most favourite places in New Zealand – also known by tourists as scenes from Lord of the Rings haha.
As I know most of my readers aren’t from New Zealand, I do invite you to come down, check it out, see what the gossip is. In fact if you are coming through Auckland email me and let’s have a pint, wine or coffee.
If you are planning on doing so I suggest you check out AA Top 101 Destinations in New Zealand – it was voted on by the locals and really does highlight the amazing stuff you can do here.
