I have a
couple of reasons for craving a trip to New Zealand but that’s on the back
burner, for a little while at least.
I have family on North Island living the dream of a life less hectic.
The downside is that I don’t get to see my darling niece and nephew in person
very often – thank goodness for Skype, it really is a lifeline. The very big
plus side though is that I have an excuse (as if one was needed) to visit New
Zealand. It is such a truly gorgeous country. So my Wednesday
want is a lovely round trip *business* class ticket (not asking for much eh?) to
New Zealand for early 2013 so I can take my new arrival (due late Summer 2012) out to meet his cousins.
wasn’t reason enough my friend’s husband (Michelin star chef Josh Emett) has
just opened a fantastic new restaurant in Queenstown – Rata. It’s the talk of the town and
they quite rightly deserve all the fabulous press they are getting. Next time we’re in NZ we’re coming to
dine Josh and Helen.
