And it’s in with New Zealand as my new eye filler, as well as becoming obsessed with checking the website listing all the recent earthquakes, these are a few things I’ve learned and liked so far in the Kiwi South Island world…
Hokey Pokey is a flavour
People really don’t want any circulars and they aren’t afraid to tell you straight their preferences.
They really go big on shop signage.
Pies are a serious business and even McDonald’s are in on this crust dollar – insert your own fingers in fast food pie pun here.
The lawn outside your house is called a berm and it’s a very serious business to take care of it.
Woolworths still exists
They wash your hair in a massage chair at the hairdressers. I don’t have a picture of this, just a long lasting memory.
