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.

No NZ COVID Tracer QR poster? No business from me!

Oliver Neighbourly Lead from One Tree Point

I spent some time in Whangarei (CBD and Okara Centre) yesterday, and I noticed that very few businesses displayed an NZ COVID Tracer QR poster on their premises.
So here's my message to all the businesses in the Whangarei and Bream Bay area: If you're too complacent and indifferent to be a part of The Team and can't be bothered to invest about 5 to 10 minutes to request your poster here, print it and display it, then I can't be bothered spending my time and money at your business.
It's that simple. Really.

Springs Flat

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

Does anyone have an idea just *what* is going on with SH1 in Springs Flat? The road surface is disintegrating after recent 'resealing'. There are truckloads of loose stone chip floating around, I bet it's cost a fair few new windscreens by now (in fact I'm wondering why the insurance industry hasn't made a hue and cry about it yet!!)

It's disgraceful. Who is responsible for fixing this mess? NZTA? WDC?

But somebody really has to DO something.
