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.

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.

Is Wellington a desirable place to live and work?

Mandy Te Reporter from Dominion Post

Private sectors say they are struggling to attract skilled workers to Wellington. They say issues like uncertainty about major projects, expensive housing, and infrastructure problems are deterring people from moving to the city. What do you think?
