Goodie Goodie Gum Drops.

I made it to New Zealand, and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised!  My flight in was like a dream... Think of the most luscious, green hills, surrounded by bright blue tropical waters, fluffy pink clouds and the most gorgeous sunrise you've ever seen.

Here are a few interesting things I've learned in my two days here:
  • Goodie Goodie Gum Drop Ice Cream is ah-mazing.  It's bubble gum flavored and literally has gumdrops in it!
  • You can ask McDonalds (aka: Maccas) to actually "steam" your buns.
  • Fish and chips are pronounce "Fush and Chups," and it is very Kiwi to eat it out on the beach.
  • "Flat out" means really busy, as in "We've been flat out."
  • "Puku" is Māori for bloated stomach.
  • Switching driving sides is really fun and surprisingly not as hard as I thought it would be.
  • The cross walk signs actually have a picture of a man walking... so cool.
  • "La-de-da" means fancy, as in "That place is really la-de-da."
  • Kiwi birds only come out at night. Also, they are blind, endangered, and flightless.
  • It is super green here, but the reason is because it rains alot.  I guess I should've expected that.
  • The Sky Tower changes colors during the year to raise awareness for different causes.  This month it is pink for breast cancer awareness month.  It's also 1,076 feet tall, which is taller than the Eiffel Tower.
