Looking around me I see the bigger pictures. And I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.

welcome to New Zealand

October 2007 is almost gone and November is just around the corner. Get on board to New Zealand, where there will be the Waitakere World Junior Badminton from 25th October to 4 November 07, the Adidas Auckland Marathon on 28 October, the Netball World Championship on 10 – 17 November 2007, and we have just missed the Coastal Yatch Race of 19 -21 October 2007.

NZ is more than a sports heaven, it is also great for food and drink place. Going over from late October 2007 to April 2008, there are various food and wine festivals, the Italian Wine and Food Festival in late October 2007, Awhitu Food, Wine & Arts Festival and the Waiheke Island Olive Festival in early November 2007, Waiheke Island Olive Festival and Devonport Food and Wine Festival the early part of 2008, and Auckland Wine and Food Festival in April 2008.

And of miscellaneous events, the Auckland Cup Week and the Pasifika Festival in early March 2008. A not to be missed multiethnic festival is the Auckland Lantern Festival with performers from China, to coincide with the Chinese New Lunar Year. Another multiethnic festival is Diwali Festival of Lights from 25th t0 28th October 2007 where event-goers can embrace the Indian culture with traditional food, Bollywood dancing and crafts.

One area of interest, and can only be found in New Zealand is Maori Tourism. One can visit and participates in a whole range of Maori activities.

Auckland being the centre of activities, it is most appropriate that Auckland be made the place of choice to stay. One may be able to get a good 4 star hotel in Auckland at about NZD 200 per night. http://www.cheaperthanhotels.co.nz/New-Zealand/Auckland/

And one may also like to stay in hostels, where its cheapest, and where one pays for price per person instead of per room as in hotels.

However one may like to stay in service apartments. There one may choose from Luxury one bedroom deluxe and executive apartments, plus two bedroom executive apartments. Secure payable underground car parking is available. And children are welcome, with high chair, port-a-cot, baby bath available at no extra charge
