Anna...from The Netherlands

Anna has been here for the last 7 weeks, and is absolutely 'loving it.' She is a biology teacher back home, so her biggest loves are naturally, NZ's environment. "Especially the yellow eyed penguins in Dunedin. Europe has cities, so I can see cities at home, but New Zealand's natural environment"

Italian fashionista

Ester is from Venice, and has been spending a few weeks in New Zealand. She wants to work in fashion. Isn't Italy a mecca for fashion I ask ? Ester laughs and says it sure is, and they're very proud of that, but she has been enjoying the 'originality' of fashion here. I just love her haircut.

" This is quite a rare vintage hat that I got from Germany " says Daisy. It's nice to see a standout hat downtown on a hot day...

Cool Places...Little Red. Waipu

I guess it was only a matter of time before the beautiful little Scottish influenced outpost of Waipu got good coffee. But it was a pleasant surprise to see it done with such style. Little Red is a coffee container that runs 6 months of the year, selling Kokako coffee.  A great barista on the deck, and I love the bright, attentive colour scheme, aqua blue and white. Alongside Little Red is the most gorgeous art and ceramics shop. It is really high quality styley stuff, that would easily sit alongside any Jervois Rd retailer.  Both are a must visit if you are in Waipu.

Azure blue, yacht rock & good friends

We spent a couple of days in the Coromandel, New Zealand, with our friends Keith and Liz. I was struck by the natural beauty of the area, having not seen the Coromandel for some years. The colour of the water especially - a particular type of green blue. Reminded me a little of the water at St Tropez. Anyway, a great time for relaxing, for walking, for boating and for the just thinking.
