Part 2 of the collection: “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition South Island (BOUNZESI)”. Have a lovely weekend, y’all, while deciding if the South or the North wins. For me, it’s clear as Lake Wakatipu.

The Best of Ugly New Zealand – North Island

People, I’m slowly running a bit low on new material. That means…

1. Time for our gazillions millions thousands quite a few dunno, maybe a couple dozen? three friends to send new material, puh-leese!

2. Time for cheap reruns of lukewarm oldies: let’s start with a lovingly complied collection of the “Best of Ugly New Zealand Edition North Island (BOUNZENI)”. Sounds a bit like a hungarian car brand, if you ask me.

Keep calm, Dunners, I’ll follow up with the “Best of the South” these days.

Everybody who has ever traveled New Zealand’s South Island knows them: Cromwell’s crazy fruits. Still, you wouldn’t believe how hard it was to finally find in Marilyn Moffat a friendly traveller and photographer that allowed me to bring you this delicious Kiwi speciality. Thanks, Marilyn, also in the name of the worldwide Ugly New Zealand fanclub fanbase readers reader!
