New Zealand - Feeling the Love!

When we heard the news about New Zealand we weren't at all surprised that they voted in favour of legalising same-sex marriage! We fell in love with the country- well the South island- when we visited during our time living in Australia - and the news that they now accept us and our love is just great.

For a small country the diversity in people and landscape is breath-taking. From beach to snow covered mountains, wide open sounds to fields filled with sheep, it was and still is, one of our favourite places! If you haven't read our post on our trip it's here: NEW ZEALAND!

Not only did the country vote in favour of same-sex marriage, they actually stood up to applaud when it was announced and then spontaneously started singing a Maui love song! We challenge you not to cry watching this:

We hope we get the opportunity to return at some point, but until then we will be happy to reminisce about how much we loved it and how happy we are that the gay marriage is now legal in a 13th country! Times are a'changing and we can't wait to see the country we live in be on the right side of history!

  1. New Zealand sounds amazing... One of my bosses I work for is from there... love the accent.

    I am happy to hear that they have come into the new century... hopefully all countries will be there soon :)
