The local people, New Zealanders or Kiwis as they like to be called, are a very welcoming bunch of people and known for their hospitality. New Zealand ranks high in the 'Worlds friendliest places to visit' roundup every year and for good reason. New Zealanders love their country and are always excited to show it off to new arrivals. The hospitality is world renowned and comprises of good food, a few laughs and an adventurous life.

New Zealanders make use of their rugged and beautiful country and live an outdoors life. Most of them are into hiking, skiing, swimming, trekking, boat trips and jumping off high bridges to get kicks! The open wilderness make New Zealand a great country to do these activities.

As well as the great kiwi hospitality,New Zealand has a strong Maori history. This is more predominant in the north island, but the culture has a grip all around the country.The Maori people came across in canoes from the Polynesian islands many years ago and have many traditions and legends about the country. There are a few sacred sites you can visit and the Maori art and wood carvings are everywhere around the country. They also carved bone and greenstone to make weapons and jewellery.

The food in New Zealand is spectacular with specialities such as lamb, venison, pork, pies, seafood and honey being favourites with tourists. The kiwi cuisine is proudly showcased through the two islands with local restaurants competing for business by coming up with creative and delicious dishes to wet the tourists appetites.

Transport in New Zealand is of the highest quality and catching a short flight, bus or renting a car is easy. The roads consist of long winding corners and epic mountain passes for you to take tour along and it is true that driving around New Zealand is an experience in itself!

Alternatively you could jump on a bus by one of the many tourism operators, or stick out your thumb and hitch a ride! This is a very common practice throughout the country, thanks to the friendly people you should not be waiting to long for a lift. Hitchhiking is quite a popular way for people to get around especially backpackers.

How To Choose A Fishing Rod And How To Make It Last

No sportsman wins by sheer talent alone. No matter how talented a sportsman is, if his equipment is not good enough, his chances of winning will remain slim.

The same goes with a fisherman and his fishing rod.

Fishing is a sport that many people find enjoyable. It is always a challenge to get the elusive fish to bite the bait, and sitting still for hours on the end just to be able to catch fish can be very relaxing.
