    carole ~ Haven't been to Iceland (yet), but I'd have to agree that Zealanders are very friendly. Bobcat and loved our trip in 1987. Can't believe it's been so long....


    The Aussies were nice to us too, though one guy yelled "War Monger!" at Bobcat. We never really figured it out. Bobcat was wearing a Banana Republic t-shirt. Maybe the guy didn't know that was the name of a store.....

    Anyway ~Congrats to New Zealand!

    I watch house hunters international and they show New Zealand and it looks beatiful.

    I traveled to Europe in the 80's and lots of people in Italy were opinionated about american politics I bet that is where that comment came from Kuhio.

    A trip to New Zealand and Australia is high on my "bucket" list! I had an opportunity that I should have pounced on, but I let it get away. Maybe 10 years ago, the band from my college was going to Sydney, Australia as part of an international music festival. The director contacted me and a few other band alumni because they needed a few chaperones. It was an 18-day tour and I couldn't get that much time off work. I should have insisted. Stupid me.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Congratulations, Carole and all your fellow Kiwis!

    If people in general down there are as nice as you are, no wonder you won!

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    I'm not surprised Iceland made the top of the list, even the anti-military protesters were polite.

    Show up at 0800, protest from 0900-1200, lunch (frequently with the soldiers they were protesting against) from 1200-1330, protest some more from 1330-1600, then go home and come back in the morning.

    Lived in Iceland back in the early 80's. The natives were a bit standoffish back then. Haven't made it to the Southern Hemisphere yet, but I've always been interested in Australia and NZ.
