New Zealand versus overseas holidays

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone, 
We'd be keen to hear from those of you who had to cancel an overseas trip due to Covid-19 and holidayed in New Zealand instead. How did you find your NZ trip? Was it better or worse than you expected? Did you enjoy it as much as you think you would have enjoyed your overseas holiday? And did it change your views about holidaying domestically?
Feel free to comment below or message me directly. Please remember your comments may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want them to be. Thank you.

Minimum wage, no help and on the ladder at 25: here's how they did it

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.

Katy Jones Reporter from The Nelson Mail

A meeting in Motueka heard too many children are "not achieving" in reading, writing and spelling, while a new report shows alarming numbers of children are starting school with very poor language skills. Experts are pointing to factors including busy lives and screen time. Where do you think the problem lies?
