The Ambience of New Zealand
If you are more of an active agent than a homebody, New Zealand’s atmosphere is just for you! While you can make any foreign location tourist-based, it’s a bit more difficult in New Zealand because of the range of invigorating outdoor activities there are. Because of the optimal moderation of perfect temperature and weather throughout a calendar year, the multitude of lively ventures, and your comfort zone, are boundless!
While they’re really engaging activities for both the thrill-seeker and the self-contained, the diverse scenery renders every type of traveler speechless. With New Zealand’s insane architectural brilliance, all-encompassing waterbodies, and semi-secretive cave sectors, you will want to be in multiple places at once. Why hasn’t anyone invented teleportation yet?! You could have the opportunity to beam throughout all parts of New Zealand and check off your bucket list in minutes.
Upon visiting, you may notice locals sounding like they’re from Australia. Though they may sound similar, New Zealanders have particular accents and jargon. A lot of wording is comparable to common Australian slang, but there are a few samples of local lingo in New Zealand that will surprise you.
Kiwis: A New Zealander or the country’s national bird. For the object Americans simply know as a fruit – locals in New Zealand call it kiwifruit
Togs: A bathing suit, or type of swimwear
Jandals: Flip-flops, sandals, or thongs. Those things you wear to the beach in the summer
Boot: The trunk of a car (Not footwear?!)
Tramping or Bushwalking: Hiking or backpacking
Along with the new lingo knowledge, you can explore the Cathedral Cove that is located in the Coromandel Peninsula. Its beauties surround itself with kaleidoscopic marine life like reefs and sponge gardens, making water activities a different kind of escape. This natural marine reserve makes it a favored spot when visiting. Something else to look out for while exploring the elegance of New Zealand is the Ironbank Building settled in the frequently ranked top 20 most livable cities – Auckland. With its literal skewed levels, the innovative building remains master of one of the most sustainable architecture types over 14 other countries.
Thinking of places to flee to? New Zealand should be at the top of your list! It has a plethora of activities and displays of splendor to offer. You can sit next to a beautiful array of blue waters while reading one of your favorite novels or you can explore the underneath of those same waters with nothing but snorkeling gear. New Zealand is one of the best places for adventure. So what are you waiting for?
