How affordable is travel within NZ?

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone, I'm Lorna, a Stuff travel reporter. We're doing a story on how affordable travel within NZ is. For those of you who have travelled within the country post-lockdown, we'd like to hear whether you've been able to find suitable flights, accommodation and activities within your budget. Do you think accommodation providers and tourism operators are doing enough to entice New Zealanders to explore their backyard? Please let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.

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.

Waikato competition goes in search of the best cheese toastie

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi Waikato,

Would you pay $40 for a cheese toastie?

You might do if it came with a lobster tail sat between a golden Volare brioche, buffalo mozzarella, crayfish oil and crispy Vandy bacon crumbs.

The dish is just one of many over 30 Waikato's chefs have let their creative minds run wild for during this year's Meyer Cheese Melt Challenge.

The competition, which sees a reimagining of the classic cheese toastie, is back for its second year and the entries are crazier than ever.
