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.

75th Anniversary of the End of the Second World War

Ministry of Culture & Heritage

This year, New Zealand will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War on 15 August 2020.

This date marks the historic anniversary of the surrender by Japan, which represented the end of the War in Asia and the Pacific and the culmination of six long years of war across the rest of the world.

The public is invited to attend the national commemorative service, which will take place at 1pm on Saturday 15 August at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park. We recommend arriving by 12.45pm.

The service will also be live streamed. More information is available on the Ministry for Culture and Heritage website.
