New Zealand has roughly five million citizens. Just over half of them live in the four largest cities: Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Hamilton. Greater London, as a comparison, has a population of over eight million alone! With such a sparse population you’ll always have the feeling you’re visiting a small town — no matter where you are in the country.
Kiwis, the people from New Zealand, are extremely welcoming as it seems they’re always enjoying life. It’s not that they don’t work, they obviously do, but it’s definitely not the main priority in their lives. As you explore the country, you’ll see them generally having fun.
