I knew it, New Zealand is paradise in every possible way. Just look around at the natural beauty that surrounds us, the people, the places the things we can do. Add to that #2 in the recent Forbes Best Countries for Business list and we’ve really got it made. Loving NZ.

New Zealand moves up one spot to No. 2 (it ranked first in 2012). The $201 billion economy is the smallest of our top 10 countries, but it has performed well, up 3.3% last year. The country offers a transparent and stable business climate that encourages entrepreneurship. The economy is closely tied to Australia’s. New Zealand gets high marks property rights, monetary freedom, investor protection and low corruption.
