Off to paradise - on a New Zealand Round Trip. Kiwis - for some they are a savory fruit for the other the name of a bird species. What has this got to do with New Zealand? Oh yes, Kiwi is also a pet name for the New Zealander. And if the inhabitants carry a nickname, then the country can also have a second name that goes back to its discoverer. The Maori call New Zealand Aotearoa and explain the use of this word with the long white cloud - that is what the translation means in Maori.
Kia Ora and Welcome to Paradise.
