Finally back in Sweden!

We are finally back in Sweden with Oscar, Hampus, Tom Andre, Cristoffer and (me Edwin.)

(Climate)-It was a wonderful journey. We sunbath and it was about 30-35 degrees hot! But now ¨New Zealand¨ goes to autumn-winter, while it goes to spring here in Sweden now and the days get longer here in Sweden while the days get shorter and darker in New Zealand.                                                                                                                                                                               (Animal life)-The animal life in New Zealand is really cool! You can find wild seals, the rare yellow eyed penguin,whales,(kiwi a bird),

Now after being in New Zealand for such a long time with your friends, you start to notice a lot of differences between Sweden and New Zealand's. The Maoris is a great exemple. The Maoris is a stubborn, rough-looking race, but you won't believe how kind and thoughtful they are. The Maoris lived in New Zealand long before anyone even knew that the Earth wasn't flat, until the Englishman James Cook came and discovered the island. Maoris have their own traditions and their own gods. Even their own language. New Zealand in their own languge is Autearora if your were curious. But of course there is not only Maoris living in NZ. After James Cook discovery, thousands of people came to NZ, from all round the globe, looking for a new life. Maoris have a fun way of cooking food. They dig a deep hole, heat a lot of stones in a fire, put half the stones in the hole, cover the stones with chicken, kumara( a potato) and vegetables and then cover the food with the rest of the stones. It's really good.

The second special thing about New Zealand is that there are no predators in New Zealand. A bit unusual.

Thanks for reading our blog and have a good day.

i don´t know much about the culture but swedish got  a more viking type of feeling. but with new zealand i get more of a tribe feeling . but the weather for me a even split. its cold and there is much snow but in new zealand it is hot. i dont know much about the animals but i know about Shrek the sheep and repiles that i love. i dont know much about the food but it seems like new zealand has a lot of diffrent types of meat. but sweden has meat balls and a dish i never remember the name of. but thats all i know about both places and i know its not much because i have lived in a dumpster 3 day of my life so i never got to see much. and i dont know sweden very good either because i just moved there and im norwegian. so im done here bye bye½!!!

Alright, we decided to write a little post each where we wrote about some differences between Sweden and New Zeeland. So here comes mine. It´s a big difference in the weather. In Sweden it´s cold and very rainy, whilst it´s very hot and it rained quite a lot, though not as much as here. One thing that is different about New Zeeland is that there aren´t any carnivore. I have also learnt a lot about the Maori. I tried to learn how to dance a Haka-dance, though it was very hard. We were there during the Christmas, and it was different to how we do it in Sweden. We tried some of the food they eat for Christmas. We tried to fix a hangi and we actually succeeded. It tasted really good. We also tried a pavlova. It was also really good. Though there weren´t any snow, and we in Sweden kind of associate Christmas with snow, so it was kind of weird. Though when we came back we heard that there hasn´t been much snow here either so it didn´t do that much. We tried to eat some of the local fishes but I thought it was awful.

In New Zealand i learned that is no carnivorse in whole country.It is only animals who eat leaves and other green shiit.I think Possum is the only animal in the country who eat meat but i don't know.If you hate spiders and other creepy insects you should definitely  go to New zealand.

The countrys climate is warm and cloudy.I don't really know how much it rain but it should not rain that much.The water is not that warm it's like here in sweden. Only warm on the summer.

All  three hobbit movies was recorded in New Zealand.

Hello!!! We just arrived in Sweden from Wellington airport and many other airports. We were sitting on the airplane for 43 hours. We switched planes 2 times from New Zeeland. Christoffer slept all the way home because he thought it was really boring to fly for 43 hours. Though he didn´t sleep whilst we were on the ground. Hampus was looking for some underwear cause he hadn´t found any in his size on the entire trip. In Hongkong airport Tom-Andrè bought five hamburgers and two bottles of Mountain Dew which he ate in about ten minutes. If you wonder it was Big Macs. Hampus of course didn´t find any underwear. Christoffer wanted to find a bottle of Captain Morgan. But we did not approve so he didn´t do it. We might have forced him with violence. Though he didn´t get that hurt. On the next airplane, Oskar made Tom-André watch a movie. It was a Barbiemovie. Oskar wasn´t watching it himself. When we landed the next time, Edwin fell asleep whilst taking a dump. We found out that he was sleeping ten minutes before the plane went off. So we were in quite a hurry. When we then landed we brought out our computer so we could write this post. This was the end of our journey so we hope that you have enjoyed to follow us. Bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hits pretty nice to live in a dumpster if your a backpacker. the thing you need most i a blanket and food (dosen´t need to be fresh) you can use a newspaper as blanket if you don´t have a blanket. it can get very cold at night so pack in good.           and don´t try to swim in a dumpster you won´t get very long. it is always a good idea to stay drunk.  you are also going to make new friend and the looks like furry theifs. but if your lucky you can get some new human friends like i did. it all happend when a clam tried to eat me but i fought back and i won and then i tried to swim back to humanity and then i found four weird loking people that stared at me.
