– using the pedestrian crossings is safer than just crossing the street anywhere

– people do a lot of sports in New Zealand, mostly sailing and playing rugby

– talking to New Zealand people is very easy, because they are open minded

– people drinking beer in bars and pubs are often loud and funny

– waiting for the bus could take more time than you thought

– finding a meal without meat is not too easy

– people working in Auckland wear casual clothes
