Really? Are a bunch of old threads gone forever or something? :rookie:

Does this count? :rookie:

I would say the average Aussie would visit NZ maybe once every couple of years. My best mate Roxanne is there at the moment; she and her husband went this time last year. My sister and her other half went about 18 months ago. I haven't been, would love to see 'Middle Earth' ...one day, I've got to LA, NYC and London first (I've got un-started business with the likes of Marmalade Skies, Wilbur, NyackJohn and Mrs Starbuck and meeting my ST friends has to take priority over a visit to a nice country across The Ditch.

New Zealand folk come to Australia a lot, most of them stay here. Many commute back and forth, with some family members living Oz perm and some still in NZ visiting regularly. I have known a lot of Kiwis (now I even think about it, my sister was married to a Kiwi for 9 years).

So yes plenty of cross pollination.

Why do you ask Schmiddlapp?

Just curious as to visitation/population patterns, sort of like us Yanks going to Mexico and Canada.

Very :cool: down under, I'm sure...

From New Zealand's National Bird - the Kiwi Bird

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2006/02/images/060217_kiwi.jpg

Aussies are also called 'Skip' or 'Skips' after 'Skippy the Bush Kangaroo



And we call the English - Poms - after the bright red glow that the Pom get when they first go out in the Australian sun, it being reminiscent of the colour of the inside of a Pomegranite fruit

Pomegranates tastes like gummy candies or like Lifesavers.
