Here are some facts that you need know before you go:
- New Zealand lacked predators and as a result a number of birds evolved as flightless including the Kiwi, and the Kakapo (a.k.a the Owl Parrot)
- Rugby is universally regarded as the national sport of New Zealand. The national team, the “All-Blacks” have won the World Cup three times
- The World Bank’s “Doing Business 2020” ranked New Zealand as the world’s easiest place to do business, and the Legatum Index ranks the country as #2 in their Overall Prosperity Index
- The Kiwis are tinkers and inventors and claim these inventions as their own: the frozen meat trade, postal stamp vending machines, electric fences, and the bungee jump!
- An estimated 15% of Kiwis own their own boat? That makes sense as it’s an island nation with some 15,000 kms of coastline
- Sheep outnumber residents of New Zealand! Wool used to be the biggest export, but wine took over that title in 2007
