Nice pictures. I like the silver van in the last photo - they aren't too common in North America.

Thank you Tony - that's right and Auckland is the 5th best city in the world regarding Quality of life - here is the article:

The best place in the world to live:
For the second year running in our annual Quality of Life Index, we say: France. At the other end of the Index, again for year number two, Iraq scores the fewest points and ranks as the world’s worst place to be. The European countries always get top scores (with the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, and Luxembourg making it into our top 10 this year), as does the antipodean nation of New Zealand (fourth). Argentina, for the first time, makes it into our top 10 (in 10th position).

New Zealand, comes in fourth place this year in our Index, moving up one position from last year. New Zealand is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Stretching across 1,000 miles, the North Island and South Island make up what the native Maori people call Aotearoa—the Land of the Long White Cloud. Settlers have called it “Godzone:” God’s own country. Made famous as the location for The Lord of the Rings movies, its elemental landscapes are so pristine you might have trouble believing they’re for real…even if you see them with your own eyes. Geysers gush, and mud pools bubble. Whales spout, dolphins frolic, and surf booms onto sands where yours might be the only footprints. Iced with glaciers, towering mountains range above a landscape veined with rushing rivers.

But New Zealand offers more than surf, turf, and Middle Earth wonderland. Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch are vibrant urban centers. And numerous small coastal and rural towns offer an enviable community spirit that’s increasingly hard to find in today’s world. Auckland is the fifth best city in the world to live, according to a 2006 Quality of Life survey by Mercer Consulting, with Wellington coming in 12th position. The other-worldly landscapes are backed up by substance: affordable health care (New Zealand scores 90 points in this category in our Index), an English-speaking population, free education, a low crime rate, great infrastructure, and one of the world’s highest “healthy longevity” figures.

On top of all that, New Zealand hides enticing real estate opportunities. You can still find homes—and we mean proper houses you can move into—for less than US$50,000. (Right now your U.S. dollar will buy you $1.46 Kiwi dollars.) The downside to living in New Zealand is how increasingly difficult it is to obtain full-time residency. New Zealand is looking for younger, professional expats. In New Zealand, for example, you must qualify through a point system—you get more points for certain qualifications than for others, and the younger you are, the better.

The 2006 Corruption Perceptions Index is a composite index that draws on multiple expert opinion surveys that examine perceptions of public sector corruption in 163 countries around the world. This year, countries with significant worsening in perceived levels of corruption include Brazil, Cuba, and the United States. Countries in the Americas with a significant improvement include Uruguay and Paraguay. The best in the world is New Zealand and Finland, tied for first place. The world’s worst is Haiti.

Immigrating to NZ is the best thing that I have EVER done

This place is hot!!! this place is cool!!! Thanks for sharing. Visited once a few years ago and loved it.

PS. Read the article. Netherlands? I think it is a joke! I have been living here for the last 6 years due to my work, and sorry but there are very few positive things I can say. The weather sucks, the food is awful, people are super selfish, pushy and materialistic, the language sounds pretty ugly, and everywhere you go it is so crowded (17.5 million people squeezed into this post-stamp place). No wonder they all escape into prostitution, drugs and euthanasia...
