February is among us and, I don’t know about all of you, but my list of “stuff to do” is most certainly growing! Getting the kids sorted for the new school year, clearing out the garage, and making good on that New Year’s Resolution to exercise more! But the definite highlight for January was not work, work, work but a trip to the South Island and an amazing stay at the Rainforest Retreat near Franz Josef Glacier. If you’re keen to “support local” a bit further afar, this is the bomb with its unique elevated rooms up in the trees at the base of the Southern Alps!
On that note, how lucky are we to live in beautiful New Zealand? With that in mind, let me help you discover some beautiful little markets we have locally around the heart of Auckland…
