Travel Forums Introductions Re-Hello!

G'day, and a warm re-Hello from an inactive member.

Back in early 2006 while researching on touring New Zealand, I found this web site and some really great info on this wonderful country. I like New Zealand so much I moved here in early 2008 as a resident. It has been almost two years since I've uprooted and re-established myself here in New Zealand and she is still as beautiful as ever. She is surely deserving of the title God's Own Country.

I do however quickly learned that God is probably not required to pay the high taxes and is probably not worried about job security ;)

I'll be happy to help with questions on New Zealand's mainland (the pretty South Island, of course!) and Singapore, where I'm originally from.

Hey Kelvin and welcome back! Have you checked out the New Zealand guide since you've been back? We started the guides as wikis in 2007, so any member can edit them now. The NZ one is quite good, but sure it could always be improved :)

Thanks for the welcome back, Sam.

I am appalled that the "Drink" section does not mention Steinlarger (specifically, Steinlarger Pure)! There is also an important lake missing in the article which I'd have thought Sander would write about, unless of course it has been specifically omitted to keep its elusive attraction... ;)

I hope to contribute to the article when I can.
