Thank you so much for the many kind messages of support and love, even flowers and chocolates, you have sent to us over the past week or so. We have been overwhelmed with the love and kindness you have shown us. Firstly, I want to say I am so proud to be a New Zealander and aren’t we lucky we live here, the best country in the world. Our hearts go out to our many friends, suppliers, and families who we know personally around the world.

Trips later in the year
The following 2020 trips are still going ahead as scheduled (dependent on the status on COVID -19).
Taranaki Garden Festival
Great New Zealand Train Journey
Opera at Ayers Rock
We will continue to reassess all these trips as we need to during the year for your safety. This means that all 2020 trips if they are able to go ahead are close to home for us either in New Zealand, Australia or the South Pacific.
Re our 2021 trips we are well underway with planning of these trips. This planning can take months and we expect to make announcements on schedule in about 2 months so if you have a credit it is soon time to go shopping!
Our Travel team are working tireless to rescheduling, cancelling and phoning everyone to let you know what’s going on.
We are all in this together and our hearts go out to everyone in the world. Let us sing from our windows to the world as it cries at present. Be safe and gentle on yourself at this very stressful time.
