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.

Hard Cheese Workshop

Riverside Milk

Cheese Making Workshop - Thursday, 30th July, 6.30pm - 8.30pm at Riverside Community Cultural Centre, 289 Main Road Lower Moutere. $35 per person.

Back due to popular demand! The Nelson region is hungry for more cheese... We hereby offer a repeat of the June cheese making workshop.

Join us at the Riverside kitchen to make a simple hard cheese that matures over a short period of time and tastes just great. A lot of people think making a hard cheese is difficult and time consuming. After just two hours spend with us in the kitchen you will go home feeling empowered and up-skilled.

This workshop is proudly sponsored by the Riverside Community Trust. Please contact Tanja (education@riverside.org.nz) to discuss sponsorship options if you are struggling to meet the workshop fee.

Please note that we will be using Riverside Milk which is RAW milk and may not be suitable for everyone's consumption. The Ministry of Primary Industries advises the following: ‘Raw milk may contain microorganisms that can causeserious illness. To reduce the risk of illness, raw milk should be heated to at least 70 degree Celsius for one minute. This is critical for infants, young children, the elderly, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems.’
