There is nice nature and nice people in NZ

Mt. Taranaki

Mt. Taranaki

A month ago I was tripping around in NZ, because my little sister is studying English in Dunedin, which is a city on the south island. Therefore, I visited her and her host family.

The host family's English pronunciation was a little bit different from Canadian or American people, so it was hard talking to them. However, they tried to talk to me slowly so I could understand what they were talking about.

After visiting Dunedin, I went to New Plymouth which is a town on the north island. There are some locations there where the movie "The Last Samurai" was filmed, and there is Mt. Taranaki which looks like Mt. Fuji. I took some pictures of it, so please look at the one above.
