Do you come from the Bay of Plenty? Do you know the Marlborough Man? The West Coast girls are really hip. Nelson and Tasman. Northland and Southland are easy to remember, unless they are territories or provinces.

As a man who was born there and lived there for 7 years, I know my regions and visited almost all of them except Southland. I live in the States now. Hopefully my Kiwis are doing well back home.
