We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.
One of my friends has recently experienced a highly challenging situation within the Christchurch City Council which in turn has cost her a considerable expense. This was arising from a strong wind causing serious (major) damage to her motor vehicle when parked near to a road works (a Christchurch, street) signage. Although the Council staff have indicated having no liability for these types of incidents, believe have appropriate indemnity insurance to cover these particular (and often quite regular) accidents. Would be interesting to learn if anyone else has been confronted with a similar issue.
Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
A leading coronavirus expert is calling on the Government to make scanning at potential “super-spreader” venues, such as bars and nightclubs, mandatory amid continued low use of the Covid-19 Tracer app.
Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.
Do you think scanning should be mandatory at pubs, nightclubs, etc?
