Safety for tourists in NZ and Australia

Share |
It is not just me, but clearly others have noted a trend for foreigners to die in NZ. There are two reasons:
1. Some locals are just not happy that their country is seemingly being overrun by foreigners.
2. There are a lot of foreigners driving on unsafe rural roads, engaging in unsafe 'extreme' sports.

NZ is actually a surprisingly unsafe country. There is a lot of domestic violence. One gets the sense that there is a lot of tough love, that people suffer a great deal of psychological repression, and on occasion they just explode. Whether it is the tourist who gets shot at, or burned to death in his campervan, you are advised to keep a low profile in NZ. The problem of course is that 'isolated' areas are often more sensitive to your presence than others. i.e. If there is no local business in town making money from you, expect that there will little empathy for you.

Interested in how many foreigners are dying in NZ - apparently its around 2000 for the last 10 years. Wow, that is 200 per year. I might add that there was a period in Australia, where I was inclined to feel that there was some racially-inspired attacks on foreigners, whether it was the killing of a Korean or Indian man, often taxi drivers, or the rape of a Japanese tourist in some resort town, or the knifing of some European backpackers.
There is a lot of bad press in NZ. Though I must say, living outside of Australia, matters seem to have deteriorated there as well. NZ is definitely worse.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
