Ok, perhaps not, knew you wouldn't come really.
Its nice, its scenic, it has beaches, it has mountains, what more do ya want?
From what I gather I would like NZ even less than I do this place. The problem with having an excellent scenery, good beaches and mountains seems to mean there is F all else so what is the other 99% of your brain supposed to do?

On a serious note though, I've talked over moving to NZ with the missus and we've decided we would both rather have bowel surgery in the wood with a stick than move even further into the dark ages. The conversation went something like this.....Honey would you like to emmigrate to NZ? F off you C not while I have a hole in my A*se! (I coloured it in for effect!)

Then other 99% of your brain is used up coming on forums to try to stay sane.
I never used forums in the Uk, had way too much to do.

I dont know too much about OZ having only been to Brisbane/Gold Coast, but in NZ, it doesn't matter where you go to shop, Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington (after a 7 hour drive!) and all the shops are samey, samey usual ones.
There is just NO choice hardly anywhere.
New one just opened in Mt Wellington, Sylvia Park. Looked it up on the net, saw all the same shops as is everywhere else. Decided it wasn't worth the fuel to go look.
So, its back to looking at the mountains, the beaches, the trees, the birds, the cats, the dogs, the flowers, etc

You're right, I too never ever used a forum or chat or any other such time waster when I was back home. Now I wake up in my self imposed prison and wonder what new and delightful experience I can have today, then I realise there is sod all to do that I haven't done 50 times already and I don't really want to waste a brain cell driving an extra hour to visit another beach that looks EXACTLY like the last one and not a single ice cream parlour or candyfloss stall anywhere to be seen, No fish and chip shop, no one hiring out wind breaks and deckchairs, just nothing, nada, zippo. Then I ponder is it worth driving an extra 2 hours to visit another so called town or city to experience the exact same thing as I can 20 minutes away. So left with the forum or going outside to flambé my oil and chemical soaked skin before letting the local wildlife feed off me whilst they exchange their presents like yellow or Johns river virus’s the forum seems to win every time!

Then at most junctions along the way were little white crosses, flowers or wreathes with memorials to people killed on the roads.

No they are way too good at it hence the need to replace the population with us imported gimboids.
