is New Zealand,
Island Nation situated in the Southern Hemisphere, in the South Pacific.
It consists of three main islands, respectively;
South Island (Mainland)
Stewart Island (very small, very cold, very South)
It lies between Australia and the Antarctic, and the weather varies in roughly the same way.
(Yes I understand that everyone "knows" that weather in South Pacific islands is idyllic, but it isn't), more about weather later.
I may make jokes about New Zealand, our home, but believe me, it is my home.
I love it, and never, ever plan to leave
