NZ's friendliest regions and towns

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi there,
Canterbury has been named the fifth most welcoming region in the world in the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards, while Oamaru, Hokitika and Invercargill have been named the most welcoming towns in NZ. They were followed by Cambridge, Picton, Lake Tekapo, Kerikeri, Palmerston North, Paihia and Twizel.
We'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on this based on your own travels around New Zealand. Do you think Canterbury is NZ's most welcoming region? And are these our most welcoming towns?
Where in NZ have you been made to feel particularly welcome on your travels?
As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it to be included in an article. Cheers.

🌿VOLUNTEERS NEEDED🌿

Camille from The Wood

🌿VOLUNTEERS NEEDED🌿
Hi all – As some of you may know, I’m studying naturopathy and nutrition, and this semester I need to find 5 clients for clinical practice assessments. This will require volunteers to fill out an extensive health history and undergo a 60-90 minute consultation with me. In exchange, I am happy to offer each volunteer a free full consultation once I am practicing next year (💃woohoo!) But for now, I’ll be looking for:

• 3 people here in the Nelson Lakes area for face-to-face consults -one with a digestive issue.
• 1 person taking at least 2 prescription or over-the-counter medications –online consult is fine.
• 1 person with a chronic condition (such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, dysmenorrhea, benign prostatic hyperplasia, etc.) -online consult is fine with this case as well.

Feel free to pass this along or tag someone you think might be interested💚I need all the help I can get spreading the word, especially for the in-person consults as I’ve recently relocated to Nelson and don’t have a lot of contacts here yet😅…thanks all!
