Wondering about New Zealand culture? Well. My family and I have been living in New Zealand for almost twelve years.
And in that time we have got to know many New Zealanders. (Or if we are going to use New Zealand slang, Kiwis).
So in this week’s New Zealand podcast, we thought it would be interesting to talk about New Zealand culture; most importantly the things that New Zealand people are known for. Tell you our opinion on whether we think those labels are right.
The education system in New Zealand receives an unfair amount of flack.
When we were planning on moving to New Zealand twelve years ago, the school system was one of the things that people always brought up.
“Ohhh… you know schools aren’t that good over there don’t you?” said the people who had never crossed the Atlantic in their lives. “And apparently, you can’t get decent bacon”.
You know my thoughts on this. Tosh. That’s what.
I’ve had plenty of decent bacon butties in New Zealand.
Moving to New Zealand is a BIG scary decision and no matter how much stuff you research on the internet, your fears will never be totally soothed.
Not until you arrive on kiwi soil, learn a bit of New Zealand slang and start getting on with your life.
In this week’s podcast episode Brian and I discuss what we worried about most about leaving the UK to live in New Zealand (& reveal whether those fears were justified).
Welcome back to the first podcast first of 2021. Broadcasting from our back garden in New Zealand (’cause it’s so blimin’ hot inside!)
Podcasting From New Zealand
I’m not going to lie. Creating a podcast episode every week isn’t easy. Maybe if we had a team of guys sorting out this and that it’d be different, but we don’t. It’s just me and Bri. A husband and wife, living in New Zealand.
Every week we chew the fat on life (usually about travel, and New Zealand) and then we share it with the world.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
The last podcast episode of 2020!
And what a year…because I am a nosey parker who likes to know everything about everyone I thought you might appreciate it if Brian and I opened up and shared with you what 2020 has been like for us.

Luckily, one of the best things about New Zealand is the fact that the people have a bloody good sense of humour.
Which is just as well.
Because some of these common misconceptions about what life is like in New Zealand are quite frankly hilarious.
