1) in new Zealand I go to work. In England I go to Christmas markets.
2) in new Zealand our currency is the nz$. in England the currency is the £. I sometimes forget about conversion rates and think I am getting a bargain. Eg £12 lunch does not actually equal a bargain.
3) in new Zealand you can catch a train to Johnsonville. In England you can catch trains to places you've only dreamed about. Like Wales. Or Birmingham (note: I have not been to Wales, that was a hypothetical).
4) in new Zealand you have two choices for winter coats: max or the Kingston coat factory. In England they are everywhere. Which is how I ended up with a new duffle despite trying to limit what I buy so it will be easier to catch trains through Europe.
5)in new Zealand ice skating is restricted to remote parts of the south island and dorkland. In England you can see ice skaters in every town. Which is why I am going to hell. Ice skaters bring me so much joy it must be sinful.
There are lots more differences of course. Like how the tv is different in each country. But I will skip to telling you how I am having a great time. York is my favourite place so far but Manchester sti has a couple of days to win me over.
