Hi everyone, I'm Lorna, a Stuff travel reporter. We're doing a story on how affordable travel within NZ is. For those of you who have travelled within the country post-lockdown, we'd like to hear whether you've been able to find suitable flights, accommodation and activities within your budget. Do you think accommodation providers and tourism operators are doing enough to entice New Zealanders to explore their backyard? Please let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
Hi Neighbours, Auckland Council's Emergency Budget emerged into daylight after 50 hours of deliberation in confidential workshops. Should that much of the discussion be held in secret? Read the story below:
Being "Neighbourly" apparently means we cannot say what we think of people who deface posters, rob liquor stores and dairies and bash the owners. We must be "neighbourly" and be nice to them. Here's one such example from almost one a week.
I make no apologies for being old fashioned but personally believe in old fashioned discipline which did work. But I got told off ! So listen up people, read the rules and be PC, be "nice" everyone, be "neighbourly". But don't expect anything to change!
