Peaceful NZ

New Zealand is the 'Youngest country on Earth'


(Wellington at sunset )


We are 8th in the global happiness index



(Lake Wanaka)


And rank top equal (least corrupt) with Denmark and Sweden on the Corruption Perception Index




(Jacksons Bay in the South Island)

And now

New Zealand has come top in an Australian Think Tanks list of 'The worlds most peaceful places'.








(Somewhere in New Zealand)


And (after 2 and a half years) in exactly 22 days we will be on the way home for a whole 4 weeks. Of course we will need plenty of these




to survive a kiwi July but we are beyond excited...Bring it on!
