The French and their love of New Zealand and places far far away. I asked these guys "why did you choose to come to New Zealand for your honeymoon'- they said ' it was far far away and they needed to do it while they could."
This young couple grew up in Montpellier in southern France but live in a little village about an hour or so from Montpellier in the mountains. They were married earlier in the year and waited for our spring / summer weather to come down under.
They were only here 3 and a half weeks and have loved every minute - so beautiful , stunning scenery and countryside and the people are so friendly.
New Zealand and Waihi Beach are a real magnet for honeymooners - we certainly get our share from all over the world and in more recent times many from France.
