Goobye New Zealand

Hey everyone…I wanna say thank you and goodbye for a really great time in New Zealand and at INTERNeX.

 

I had the possibility to learn a lot about working in another country under new circumstances and also found a lot of new friends due to my workplace. I loved the possibilty to implemet my own ideas and help to set up a new business. I am also really proud to develop and establish our Traveldesk and the Pubnight and I am sure Robin, our new intern will go on with it really good.

I wish you all a great time like me in New Zealand, enjoy your stay and don’t forget to travel! This is the best way to get familiar with this country. I know what I am talking about…;-)

 

My time in New Zealand wouldn’t be the same, if I hadn’t worked at INTERNeX.

 

So thanks to everyone making my stay here to an unforgettable experience. INTERNeX will keep on to do the same for you.

 

Goodbye, Caroline

Do you know…? – Fun Facts!

Hey all!

Last week I told you some facts about the country of kiwifruits, stunning landscape and crazy activities. That’s also the reason while I am bringing you this time some facts around crazy and strange stuff of the country we are living in…;-)

Do you know?

Bungee jumping was invented in New Zealand.

 

There are more Scottish pipe bands per head of population in New Zealand than in Scotland.

A Gum boot day is held annually in Taihape. It is an event, that was born in 1985, to draw country wide attention to Taihape.

A New Zealander invented the tear-back velcro strip, the pop-lid on a self-sealing paint tin, the child-proof pill bottle and the crinkle in hair-pins so that they don’t fall out.

New Zealand has won more Olympic gold medals per head than any other country.

The longest place name in the world still in use is Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukaka-
pikimaungahoronukupokaiwenuakitanatahu, a hill in Porangahau in the Hawkes Bay. The Maori name translates to “the place where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, who slid, climbed and swallowed mountains, known as Landeater, played his flute to his loved one.”

New Zealand has more book-shops per head of population than any other country; one for every 7500 people.

New Zealand has one of the highest car ownership rates in the world, with 2.5 million cars for 4 million people.

Do you know?

Hey guys!

Hope you’re doing well here in New Zealand and enjoy the time. I have some interesting facts about the country you are living in. Some of them you may have known before but I am sure some are new and maybe surprising!

Do you know….?

Wellington, the Capital City of New Zealand is the southernmost capital city in the world.

New Zealand was the first major nation to have universal suffrage. In 1893 it became legal for all male and female citizens of New Zealand to vote.

New Zealander and Nobel Prize Winner, Ernest Rutherford is known as the father of nuclear physics for his orbital theory of the atom.

The Otaga wineries constitute the southernmost wine-growing area in the world. New Zealand wines are drunk young, with pinot noirs and sauvignon blanc being particularly outstanding. Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough are the two largest wine regions.

The Sky Tower in Auckland is with 328 m the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.

In 1840 NZ became the first country to put into effect the 8 hour working day.

New Zealanders are getting married older. The latest statistics show that the median ages of men and women get married for the first time is 29.9 and 28.1 years. These brides and grooms married, on average, nine years older than their parents did.

Little known amongst facts about New Zealand is that 22% of its residents were born overseas. This compares with 24% in Australia, 20% in Canada, 12% in the USA and 8% in the UK.

The indigenous Maori people make up about 15% of the population.

More rainbow trout in the 2kg to 3kg category are caught annually in New Zealand than in the rest of the world put together.

Have a nice start into the week!
