Things that surprise Kiwis returning to NZ

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

Bowel Cancer – You’re never too young

Bowel Cancer

Bowel cancer can strike at any age. Each year about 3,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with the disease and more than 1,200 will die. That’s as many as breast and prostate cancer combined. But it is treatable – and beatable – if detected early enough. Check your symptoms

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
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.

Water

Lynn from Glen Avon - Waiwhakaiho

I think it is high time we stopped wanting walk ways, bike tracks, rugby stadium, (who wants to watch a 2nd division team anyway) etc etc. it’s great to have all these thing’s BUT at the expense of water, sewerage, good roads, footpaths, etc the core of good councils, I know it’s feels better to say I was a councillor when we built the stadium then to say I was a councillor and we fixed the water. Or do we put rates up by a $1000 or so and have it all? I feel bad about passing it to the next generation when we haven’t maintained it and haven’t paid enough rates to cover costs.
