Here Are somethings that comes into people’s mind when you say you are from New Zealand.
1. “New Zealand is part of Australia, right?”
Don’t say that to a New Zealander. Period. That’s like telling a Canadian that their country belongs to the US, confusing Ireland with Scotland, or thinking Denmark and Sweden are the same place.
No one likes cultural ignorance, and this one will probably sting Kiwis a bit too hard.
