New Zealand

I just finished a short tour of New Zealand, and it is some of the most amazing scenery I have ever been blessed to see (and I have visited over 30 countries).

Here is a link to my first of 3 blog posts on the ride (on my family's blog about our expatriate stay in China):

I was born there. Lived there till I was 26 or so and ended up in Korea with a wife and 2 kids for the last 12 years. I agree, there aren't many countries with the contrast of Mountains, Beaches, Fiords, Glaciers, Thermal springs, and forests/farm land so close together. Perhaps its time for months vacation back home to remind myself of this fact.

Money and taxes. First off getting a job right from University is almost impossible. It goes like this "so you have a degree, have you ever worked in the industry?" Of course the answer is no. 60 interviews later I got sick of that. I applied to the army, they said I was too old and too qualified. Finally disgusted I left for Korea and I haven't been back since. Taxes? I object to paying 40% of income to the government when I can pay 3% here.
