    I'm considering moving to either London, Auckland or Wellington after I graduate--I think the film industry in LA is a bit too toxic for me. I've been to London, but not the other two, so if anyone lives in/has stuff to share about those three cities, I'd love to hear it.

    And @bonfireazalea: I'm in the US and I use tap and faucet interchangeably. I also always say tights, not pantyhose--I think it's mainly older generations that call them that.
    Oh okay I got the US and UK terms off the Internet, not too sure what people actually use there!

    Well, I'm not too sure! the words you hear a lot is kai, which means food. "I'm gonna go and get some kai" is a common phrase. and general stuff like Kia Ora (hello), whanau (family) etc

    I don't speak it fluently or anything, but a bit leaks into a convo every once in a while.

    Is there any actual overlap between your countries aside from you both (I think) being part of the "Commonwealth" and being near each other.
    Two completely separate governments?
    Maori and Australian Aboriginals have nothing to do with each other?
    What are the biggest differences between your countries that you wished people knew?
    That we don't have the same accent. It is kinda similar, but not the same at all! It's almost like saying that the Irish accent & the Scottish accent sound the same.

    Yeah practically what Ebony said above.
