Yes, very true. I read somewhere that New Zealanders and Australians are the most internationally travelled nationalities per capita in the world. Figure was around 40% of both nationalities traveling overseas at least once last year. Quite astonishing considering the isolation of both nations. The US figure was less than 10% which explain the low number of international flights for the population.
40% doesn't seem like much at all. Surely most European countries will have much
higher figures? A massive proportion of Northern Europeans go "south" at least once a year. Whilst I consider myself a travel stat anomaly, I can't think of a single friend of family member (here in the UK) that doesn't
travel abroad at least once a year.
Still, given the location of NZ
/OZ (as you said), it's not a bad figure.
