Некоторые другие типичные выражения из Новой Зеландии с английским акцентом в истории от носителя языка:
This is something that all New Zealanders do: they stay at the “bach”. Summer in New Zealand is during the December/Christmas period, so it is always a huge celebration, with lots of people spending their Christmas days on the beach and having grand parties for the lead up to New Year’s Eve celebrations. Because of this, many New Zealanders own a holiday house which is called a «bach.» We are a country that is isolated from the nest of the world and surrounded by beautiful coastal areas, and it is therefore a typical Kiwi holiday.
Although the idea of spending your summer holiday by the beach instills a feeling of luxury, don’t be fooled when coming to New Zealand, as this popular past-time for Kiwis is almost deliberately anti-luxury. As strange as it is, often the worse the “bach» the better the holiday. I guess it stems from our “She’ll be right” attitude! These houses are usually pieced together by left over materials from previous Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects, decorated with items collected over the years, or things your grandmother gave to you that you wouldn’t ever dare to have in your own home.his is something that all New Zealanders do: they stay at the “bach”.

One of the best places I’ve stayed in was a self-made garden shed attached to an old caravan. The living room was outside, with three old couches and a TV under a self-made roof. The kitchen was a free-standing barbeque, which is a must-have item in order for your holiday to be successful. A typical day starts with «brekkie” which is breakfast on the BBQ. This is usually eggs, hash browns (which are made from potatoes), sausages and baked beans. Then it’s off to the beach to surf, dive, fish, swim and waste your day under a brilliant sun-filled sky. If you’re lucky enough to catch your dinner from fishing, you’ll organise a get-together with friends and relatives and neighbors to enjoy the glory of your successful catch. Otherwise, it’s off to the local fish and chip shop!
