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.

Queenstown woman's lockdown podcast goes global

The Team Reporter from Queenstown News

It was Queenstown woman Jane Guy’s birthday when she learned New Zealand was heading into lock down in 48 hours.

“I just burst into tears,” she said, “I thought, ‘how the hell am I going to look after my child?’”

The solution for the long-time Queenstown Life blogger, who had always had a penchant for talking and hearing people’s stories, was to start a podcast.

The first wave of mums interviewed included microbiologist Siouxie Wiles, journalist Alison Mau and Green Party co-leader Marama Davidson. Read more about Jane's podcast here.
