10 things I miss about New Zealand

by Amber on November 18, 2012

Pineapple Lumps

  • Pineapple Lumps and hokey pokey ice cream and feijoas and Fruit Bursts and Cookie Times…
  • People saying thank-you to the bus driver when they get off the bus
  • My bestest friends and whanau
  • Flat whites and people watching on K Road
  • Food courts
  • The sea, the sea! I miss the smell of the ocean and listening to the waves crash at Omaha
  • Dollars and cents – pennies are so finicky
  • Amazing Japanese (I’ve had one plate of good sushi in London and it almost made me weep with joy)
  • Op shops filled with row upon row of perfect jumpers
  • Endless summers, mild winters

Sushi! I missed that the most in England. Their Sushi is pathetic, and expensive!

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to
her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
I had to tell someone!

Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website
with us so I came to look it over. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
Fantastic blog and excellent style and design.
