Poll: Should people coming into New Zealand pay for their isolation costs?

Sharron Pardoe Reporter from Dominion Post

International travellers flying into New South Wales are now paying A$3000 (NZ$3168) for their two-week stint in hotel quarantine. Travellers will be charged A$3000 for one adult, A$1000 for each additional adult and A$500 per child aged three and over. Children under three will stay free of charge. Do you think Kiwis should be charged for their isolation costs? Nzwww.stuff.co.nz...

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.

DIY with a touch of Marmite

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved chatting with Timaru craftsman Duncan Cottle about his beautiful work on this ceiling rose. He sculpted, molded and cast the whole thing by hand, with just trial and error to guide him. How cool is that? I found it so inspiring. Chatting to him made me want to give it a go myself. I reckon I might start with something a little simpler first, however. Those Acanthus leaves look so good... but also quite difficult! Maybe an art deco rose, to match my 30s house? Anyway, I'd love to hear from anyone else whose created something lovely for their homes from scratch. Drop me a line and let me know what DIY magic you've been up to!
