There are many things that define us as “kiwis” – from barefoot shopping to supporting the All Blacks, there are lots of building blocks that make up our cultural identity. Perhaps one of the largest blocks there is, would be a connection with the outdoors.
Kiwis are an “outdoorsy” bunch of people. Whether you moved to New Zealand last decade, last year or last week it is an inescapable reality that at some point you will find yourself looking for adventure in our great outdoors (also known as the “wops”). We are lucky in Aotearoa to have an abundance of natural serenity right on our doorstep, but sometimes it can be difficult to figure out where to go and what to do first. Luckily, our good mates from Breadcrumbs have put together a short collection to give you some inspiration for where to start!

Question: What do currencies say about an economy? Well that’s a trick question because the answer is everything and nothing at all
See, in today’s trading markets a currency means nothing unless it’s compared against another national currency (or perhaps the price of gold). When you compare a currency against another currency, not only can it be a potential indicator of economic strength relative to other economies, but it can also tell you the general global financial mood, the appetite for risk, the stage of economic cycle – both domestic and global, about the state of inflationary pressures and about other macroeconomic and environmental forces.

It’s December now, so you’re probably hearing Christmas carols every time you walk down the street. Yes – it’s nearly the end of the year, so before we get there, we thought we’d look at some Kiwi Christmas traditions to get you in the Christmas spirit for the 25th of December!
The Christmas spirit is embraced by most Kiwi families. You might notice it in your workplace, around the shop front windows and on T.V and the radio. Some people love it more than others too. Often there will be that one person in the office that will wear their Santa hat every single day during December, even if it’s 25 degrees outside! Kiwis REALLY like getting festive. There are some essential Kiwi Christmas Traditions that you need to know about.
