Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
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 Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article.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.

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

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.

COVID QR Code Scanning

Diana from Napier South

I am amazed at the attitude of people regarding the scanning of the COVID QR Code. From interactions I have had with people it appears that the attitude is that now we are out of lockdown it's not necessary to scan or that the whole thing is a scam. What could be more incorrect than this. It's just as, if not more, important to keep scanning and being vigilant so that hopefully between us all - this country of 5,000,000 - we can prevent another outbreak, especially with these new variants. I consciously scan the QR Code where ever I am and if not I complete a manual enter.
Come on everyone let's keep this COVID out and get scanning.
