Australasia (except NZ)
Oceania and Australasia are geographic regions with varying definitions, depending on the source. New Zealand appears to be the biggest source of controversy as to where it belongs. Albom Adventures has chosen to define our Oceania category as Australia and all of the islands in the Southern Pacific Ocean.
(countries we have written about are in italics):
- Australia: A country deserving of its own subcategory.
- Pacific Islands: including American Samoa, Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, French Polynesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Caledonia, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.
- New Zealand: This is our home country and technically not part of Oceania. It is, however, part of Australasia, and in conversation, the two are often interchangeable. We have added New Zealand as a separate tab on the menu bar.
