    Visiting from the USA -- Bringing souvenirs

    Hey guys

    I'm visiting from the States and plan on bringing some souvenirs as bartering/gifts for the people I meet while in NZ.

    I'm trying to make a list of things to bring, so feel free to comment and I'll do my best.

    If it helps: I'm in Las Vegas, so playing cards are a definite.

    Cheers


    So far, I have to bring @Angus_A like 5 bags of Crunch Berries..

    Man, I wish.

    They're already expensive, and the steaming pile of shit they call The Walking Dead has inflated the prices even more.

    Just be aware that lots of animal or plant related stuff may not be allowed into the country (or has to be fumigated or treated at your cost).
    Packaged processed food is normally fine, but no raw food or homemade jerky etc.
    Souvenirs with wood (untreated), bone, feathers, fur etc are generally a no-no.

    Your idea of cards from Vegas is a good one. Bring your local culture.

    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Beads and blankets are good. Shiny little mirror's are even better, Hell you could even by a large part of South Auckland for a Starter cap, Dickies work shorts and an NBA singlet.

    Ugh. The Raiders are coming to town and bringing their shitty fanbase with them.

    Bring yourself, a smile and a tale or three ,photos are great also. I / we enjoy great company, perhaps put in some flys, or lures! Cards and caps go down a treat!

    But a offer to help with fuel / bait on a private trip and a willingness to share and enjoy and generally do your bit to help cleaning the boat or cooking tea, cleaning up ,will see you accepted into our fold in a heart beat.

    Bloody good advice! Just be a genuine good bugger and you'll fit right in. You won't need goods to barter then!
