Kiwi Slang, Through the Words of Young Adventuress

Liz Carlson is a fellow travel blogger (just far, far more legit and amazing with her words… just see for yourself here). I stumbled upon her blog (along with thousands of others) after her photo of Hobbiton was re-grammed by Instagram. Her stories whilst traveling in NZ are far more wild, adventurous, exciting, and freeing than mine… she’s an inspiration. Read away here.

I’m re-blogging her post regarding Kiwi slang since I think everyone needs to read it and get a laugh from it… and it also may help shed light on my experiences with Kiwis to my friends and family back home in America.

And here I thought Hawaiian Pidgin English was confusing. Add their accent along with my mind’s tendency to wander off, and I end up saying,“Huh? Excuse me?” far too often.

Now, the reason why I’m called “Deebee” rather than “Debbi” should be understood.
