The Best of Both Worlds - Collab with Anael!

Hey, Targets!

 England. Big, Loud, Beautiful.
 New Zealand. Small, Quieter, Beautiful.

Today I am doing a collab with my online friend Anael from Anael's Fabulous Blog! We were talking and she came up with this idea to do a collaboration called 'The Best of Both Worlds' Meaning England - Where she's from, and New Zealand - Where I'm from. So while I'm doing a post about the beauty of NZ she will be writing about the wonders of England.

This is a snapshot of some of the country in NZ - I will not be talking about this one in depth because it is mostly just a header image!

A lot of the worlds most famous films were made in New Zealand - Have you heard of Narnia? Or the Hobbit? What about the Simpsons? (Ok the Simpsons wasn't filmed in NZ as it was animated I just had it in there because someone thought we didn't have the Simpsons in NZ. We are small but not that small!!!)

Yup. NZ has a giant kiwifruit. England has their Lambanana and NZ has a big green fruit. Whoo Hoo

Now for a ew facts:
Population – 4.47 million - Los Angeles has around the same amount of people as NZ. LA alone. 
Capital – Wellington - Home of the BeeHive :
The main languages of NZ are English & Maori. 'Maori' is pronounced Maow-ri not May-ori or Ma-oh-ri.
New Zealand was the first country to give woman the full rights GO GIRLS!
NZ has the highest ranked level of human freedom in the world!
A nativ NZ bird called the Kea is known for pulling off windscreen wipers in the South Island.
Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, a hill in Hawkes Bay is the longest place name in the world! (Written in Maori)
New Zealand has more Scottish pipe bands per capital than any other country in the world not counting Scotland of course.
The first man to climb Mt Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary was a kiwi.
More people are killed playing lawn bowls each year then by scuba diving in NZ.

And this brings me to the end of my first collab post!
